Product Description

Tracy the big-hearted tearaway is back – living with her new foster mum, Cam. But things aren’t going as she planned. Cam won’t buy her fancy clothes or let her bunk off school, and Tracy is finding life tough. The only thing that seems to help is playing the Dare Game with her friends, inventing the most brilliant and outrageous dares to do. So when her long-lost mum suddenly gets in touch, Tracy jumps at the chance to go and live with her. It’s a dream come true! But Tracy’s dream mum soon turns out to be a nightmare. She’s selfish, thoughtless and full of tall stories. Will gutsy Tracy dare to admit the truth to herself – that she’s better off without her real mum after all?

Jacqueline Wilson

24424 jacqueline wilson 1 206738

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.

    I loved this book!! I read it quite a while ago when my cousin lent it to me. This book is for anyone who loves a humour or an adventure book, it was perfect for me!! This book includes lots of dares and gruesome scenes and its vey very gripping, it was sooo hard for me to put this book down! When you’ve finished this book, I would recommend any other Tracy beaker books or even any Jacqueline Wilson books, they are all amazing!!! E X

    Another great edition to the Tracy beaker trilogy, and I think I loved it just as much as the first and last. I think that it’s both funny, and a bit fearsome, and something so many kids can relate to, that you just have to read it, to experience the wonderment of the story.

    I loved Starring Tracy Beaker, and all of the TB series. The characters are funny, and intersting, and I love how it is written in first person. The story lines were great, and I will have to read it again soon!
