Excellent story about a 10 year old girl named Tracy Beaker who is in a home for unwanted children. Tracy is desperately hoping her mother, who is according to Tracy, a famous Hollywood actress, will come to see her act the part of Scrooge in her Junior High's production of A Christmas Carol. A worthwhile read. ( )

This is a one-off story about Tracy Beaker.
It is nearly Christmas and Tracy's school are getting ready for the Christmas Play. It is A Christmas Carol. At first Tracy wants to be a ghost but Justine is Marley, Louise is the Ghost of Christmas Past because she has long fair hair, A plump jolly boy called Freddy is picked as the Ghost of Christmas present and because he is tall and thin another boy called Philip is chosen for the part of The Ghost of Christmas Yet-To-Be. Weedy Peter has the perfect part for him. Tiny Tim! Tracy is chosen for Ebenizer Scrooge. The part is taken off her when she hit Justine in the nose, giving her a nose-bleed. Tracy is very excited about Christmas because her mum has told her she would come. Tracy buys her a necklace, hand lotion, perfume and a copy of A Christmas Carol for her mum for the special occaision. Tracy is given the part back and Cam helps a lot for getting the actors ready for the play and gives Tracy tonnes of advice. Her mum does not see her act in the play but a bouqet of flowers arrive from her. Tracy instead is invited to go to Cam's for Christmas. She accepts. Cam gives her ten books(Little Women, What Katy Did, Black Beauty, The Wind in the Willows, Five and It, ,Mary Poppins, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Anne of Green Gables, The Secret Garden and Ballet Shoes), some art stuff and a pin star badge for Christmas after taking her to out-door skating rink and a breakfast of croissants and hot chocolate. They then get hungry and because Tracy unbelivebly does'nt like Christmas Dinner she makes egg and chips. She then writes Cam a Tracy token and tells her that if she is a actress Cam can be her drama coach. If she is an author she will dedicate her first book to her mum and her second will be dedicated to Cam. If she is a famous chef she will call her egg and chips Cam Christmas Special. Then they hug.
