Bestselling Jacqueline Wilson’s classic How to Survive Summer Camp is out in a brand new edition for a new generation of readers. It brilliantly and hilariously captures the dramatic intensity of living 24/7 with your peers. Stella is dreading going to Evergreen. As far as she’s concerned, she’s being dumped there so that her mum and new husband can enjoy a honeymoon without her. And her new haircut doesn’t help…Things get off to a bad start when Stella is mistaken for a boy, then her home mates are ghastly. What else can go wrong? Just about everything but, in the end, Stella knows she’s had the time of her life!

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 in countless Woolworths’ exercise books as she grew up. As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her!) before turning to writing novels full-time.

Jacqueline is one of the nation’s favourite authors, and her books are loved and cherished by young readers not only in the UK but all over the world. According to a recent Mori poll, Jacqueline was voted English children favourite children’s author. She has sold millions of books and in the UK alone the total stands at over 25 million!

In 2002 Jacqueline was awarded the OBE for services to literacy in schools and from 2005 to 2007 she was the Children’s Laureate. In 2008 she became Dame Jacqueline Wilson.

2011 saw the 20th Anniversary of her best known novel, The Story of Tracy Beaker,which is not only still hugely popular but has given life to two sequels and an award-winning TV series for CBBC.
