This is a good book but I have read better Jacqueline Wilson books. I liked Tracey Beaker, she is well described. But the plot wasn't great. ( )

I'm a man in his late twenties. I'm not altogether sure why I read this book, but I did find it enjoyable. I was moved by the kids in care idolizing their living parents no matter how infrequently they come to visit. There being seemingly no end to the fantasys the children construct whereby their absent mothers or fathers can remain heroes.
My wife made fun of me because I was reading a book with illustrations. :) ( )

Not for me, this one. Perhaps cheeky 10 year olds have lost their charm for me ( )

The Story of Tracy Beaker is about a girl who has been abandoned by her mother to the care of the state. She tells us in her own voice about her relations with the other children and staff in her home, with her former foster parents, and with a grownup writer who she befriends. It is heartbreaking and also funny: the humour is that Tracy is a delightfully unreliable narrator, who insists that she doesn't cry, that she didn't break the Mickey Mouse clock, that her mother is coming to visit, etc. ( )

My name is Tracy Beaker. I am 10 years 2 months old. My birthday is on 8 May. It's not fair because that dopey Peter Ingham has his birthday then too, so we just got the one cake between us.
