Jacky Daydream

Superstar author Jacqueline Wilson takes a frank and captivating look at her own childhood in this autobiography. It’s a tale of friendships, loneliness, books, toys, family and much more. Read it to see how Jacky played with paper dolls like April in Dustbin Baby; how she sat entrance exams like Ruby in Double Act, and how – just like Tracy Beaker – she loved writing and making up stories! Funny, warm and moving, this book shows how Jacqueline Wilson started to become a writer, and where she got her inspiration from.
