'I'm Tracy Beaker. This is a book all about me. I'd read it if I were you. It's the most incredible dynamic heart-rending story. Honest.'
Tracy is ten years old. She lives in a Children's Home but would like a real home one day, with a real family. Meet Tracy, follow her story and share her hopes for the future in this beautifully observed, touching and often very funny tale, all told in Tracy's own words.
"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, and Tracy's prose is decorated throughout with cheeky line drawings"
"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"
"A sensitive and beautifully observed story . . . Our young readers appreciated both the humour and the pathos"
"Tracy is lively and spirited, and her narrative funny and moving"
"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"
