LoveReading View on My Mum Tracy Beaker

Tracy Beaker, older, a bit wiser, and still fabulous!

Shortlisted in the UK Author Category in the National Book Awards 2018

She’s back - Tracy Beaker, star of the dumping ground and daydreamer extraordinaire, and what a joy that is! She may be grown up and with a daughter of her own, Jess, but she’s still our Tracy: generous, quick to lose her temper but just as quick to apologise, always hoping for the best and coping with the worst. Life with Tracy is all highs and lows, and it’s wonderfully described by Jess – the new boyfriend who seems set to make Tracy’s dreams come true, the special relationship between mother and daughter, and their version of happy ever after. Funny, touching, true, the story will appeal to Tracy Beaker fans old and new.

My Mum Tracy Beaker Synopsis

 

A heart-warming tale of unconventional families and unconditional love; the perfect read for Jacqueline Wilson fans, young and old(er).

Jacqueline Wilson's bestselling, ultra famous and TOTALLY BRILLIANT Tracy Beaker is BACK!! Tracy has returned, hand in hand with her daughter Jess, she's ready to make her childhood dreams come true. Jess and Tracy Beaker are the perfect team. They do everything together. Jess thinks Tracy is the best mum ever, even when she shouts at her teachers! Tracy has made the perfect home for Jess, leaving The Dumping Ground far behind her. Yes, their flat's a bit mouldy. It's only just big enough for two. And the Duke Estate is a bit scary. But it's their happy home. Until Sean Godfrey, Tracy's rich boyfriend, whisks them away to his mansion, life of fast cars and celebrity stardom. Will Jess's brilliant mum turn into a new person altogether? And will Tracy realise that her childhood dream might not be what she needs after all?

Jacqueline Wilson is one of the most loved authors for a reason. Her characters never needed a cape, or a special power to be a hero to generations of children; just huge imaginations, a bit of fierceness and a big heart. And there is no hero fiercer or more iconic than Tracy. My Mum Tracy Beaker is a fantastic new story, reuniting readers with a much-loved old friend (and some old enemies. . .) Just like old times, it's packed full of illustrations from Nick Sharratt.
