STRICTLY PRIVATE. KEEP OUT ON PAIN OF DEATH.

I'm Tracy Beaker - have you heard of me? I'm stuck in The Dumping Ground just at the moment, but I'm sure my Mum will come and get me soon. A certain Justine-Hateful-Littlewood has stolen my best friend Louise but I don't let it get me down. I never cry. Ever. I've done a bit of screaming and stamping in my time mind you . I like eating birthday cake. And Smarties and Big Macs with French fries and strawberry milkshakes. I also like story writing. This is a story all about me - so I know you'll enjoy it!

Includes exclusive material: In 'The Backstory' you can read an interview with Jacqueline Wilson and take Nick Sharratt's drawing challenge!

Review:

Shortlisted for the Smarties Prize in 1991, Tracy Beaker's story, which is told in the first person by the infuriating and loveable 10-year-old Tracy, is a wonderfully funny and thought- provoking slice of life in a children's home. Tracy, as she herself tells us, has had a hard time. She's been fostered a number of times but it's never worked out. Now she dreams of her glamorous mother coming to fetch her and spends her time, when she's not quarrelling with the other children, writing her life story. And then one day, Cam, a real writer, visits the home and after a rocky start, she and Tracy really hit it off. This highly accomplished, prolific, prizewinning author is outstandingly successful in dealing with painful social and personal problems in a realistic, funny, touching and highly memorable way. The story is delightfully illustrated by Nick Sharratt and laid out in a genuinely user-friendly way. A must for 7- 11-year-olds. -- Tamsin Palmer

Review:

'An appealing mix of events and reactions that are both entertaining and moving. A book that lingers in the mind long after it is put down.' (The Guardian)

'Tracy is lively and spirited, and her narrative funny and moving.' (The Bookseller)

'Told in the zany, entirely convincing voice of Tracy Beaker herself ... The strains of communal life with other children, rivalries and friendships and jokes, all spring to life.' (The Sunday Times)

'A breath of fresh air. It is entertaining yet tender but by no means sentimental when it confronts the need we all have for commitment in relationships, for trust, for love ... A real bonus is that the book genuinely celebrates the act of writing – and not by preaching, I promise.' (The School Librarian)
