The Story of Tracy Beaker

“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.”

Ten-year-old Tracy has had a tough time. She lives in a children’s home known as the Dumping Ground, and has never seen her mum or dad. Tracy longs for a real home and a family of her own. Meanwhile she spends her time writing her life story – in between fighting with the other kids! But when Cam, a writer, visits the home and takes a shine to Tracy, could her dream of a proper place to live come true?

  • A brilliant classic by the wonderful Jacqueline Wilson
  • Probably Jacqueline’s best-loved and best-known book
  • Gritty, funny, moving stuff, turned into a top TV show
  • Look out for the latest book, My Mum Tracy Beaker
