Lovable tearaway Tracy is back – and she’s starring in the school Christmas play! With her quick wits and cheeky personality, she’s got plenty to bring to the stage.

One thing’s for sure – feisty, plucky Tracy will leave you wondering just what on earth she’ll do next!

Jacqueline Wilson

Jacqueline Wilson was born in Bath in 1945, but spent most of her childhood in Kingston-on-Thames. She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first “novel” when she was nine, filling countless Woolworths’ exercise books as she grew up. Since having her daughter, Emma, she has been writing full time.

Her insightful and emotionally challenging books not only stretch reading ability, but give young readers a glimpse into many kinds of lives. Smart girls, strong girls, bad girls, brave girls. Girls keeping their families going, girls trying to get away… Jacqueline Wilson’s written about them all! These powerful stories of plucky girls in difficult circumstances won’t fail to strike a chord.

She has written over 70 best-selling books, and several have even been adapted for TV – most famously The Story of Tracy Beaker. Her signing sessions attract huge crowds of fans and last for hours! Over 25 million copies of her books have now been sold in the UK alone.

In 2007 Jacky Daydream was published, an inspirational true story of how a shy schoolgirl became a superstar author. This was followed by My Secret Diary, a captivating account of Jacky’s teenage years.

In June 2002 Jacqueline was given an OBE for services to literacy in schools, and she was the Children’s Laureate from 2005-2007. She also became a Dame in December 2007.

    This book would be very well suited to key stage 2 and above children. The story deals with some extremely real and often painful issues of children growing up in care, having to use various methods of coping. This story should allow children the opportunity to empathise with the life of another child, or indeed comfort those children in similar situations

    This book was a totally cool, Active and also a exiting book to come home from school run up stairs straight into my room and read. Most people would take their books to school but I don’t because my point is that if you do you will not have nothing to look forward to when you come home But there is another reason why you could take your book to school is because if you do you could read it all at school and then come home to another great lively, adventurous book like Jacqueline Wilson Lilly Alone which is another get out there book. Hope you think the same because I think this book was one of the best ones which I read everyday and every night to get exited to.

    I like tracy beaker because she’s bossy, funny to see and always causes fights. When she thinks she can solve problems at the dumping ground, she only makes it worse. This book is 5 stars.

    My reccomended ages: 7 – 14

    What I like about this book: The way Tracy writes it in her own words, and the way Tracy calls Justine new names like: Justine – Pain – In – The – Bum – Littlewood and Justine – Won’t – Mind – Her – Own – Buisness – Littlewood. It makes the story really funny and it makes you want to read the whole book in one go the way Tracy and (Jacqueline Wilson) has wrote it. It’s a real page turner and I would recomend it to both girls and boys!

    So, come on now, read this book from the most best author for children’s books – Jacqueline Wilson! She’s a brilliant writer!

    Starring Tracy Beaker is a story to compare your thoughts and feelings and also to have your mind being absorbed by Tracy.

    This book from all others inspired me because I Ioved the characteristics of everyone [yes, even Justine Littlewood/ brain] and the themes of it were gr8! I rate this a big 10/10 and recommend it to everyone, all ages! I will definitely use the tips but I wont be violent like Tracy!

    This time it has a difference, with a Christmas play and Tracy’s secret lover, who is it? Is it Tracy’s mum, or will it be Cam? Find out by reading the wonderful book ever and I will guarantee you will never regret reading it!

    This is one of my favourite books. I really love Jacqueline Wilson books and this is one of the best because I like Tracy Beaker best of all her characters. Like in the other Tracy Beaker books, this is really, really funny and also really, really sad. The funny bits are what Tracy does when she gets angry, and the sad bits are about her mum because Tracy keeps hoping her mum will come to see her at the Dumping Ground.
