Synopsis

Jacqueline Wilson by John Bankston

When Jacqueline Wilson was 16, she dropped out of school, a choice that could have been devastating. Instead, she soon began writing for a teen magazine named Jackie. Married with a daughter before she turned 21, Wilson wrote crime fiction to help pay the bills. It would be years before she fulfilled her dream and authored a book for young people. After writing two books a year for more than a decade, she penned her first bestseller, The Story of Tracy Beaker, which depicted a 10-year-old writer who dreamed of the perfect family. Today, Wilson's books have sold more than 25 million copies worldwide, and she is one of the most-borrowed authors at British libraries. Read more about this celebrated author in Jacqueline Wilson.
