Moving and entertaining, with a great protagonist voice. ( )

A funny touching portrayal of a young girl in foster care. Only she is not the typical sweet lovely child often shown in stories of this genre. She's got issues. I did think it ended rather abruptly. I felt like it ended only half way through the story. ( )

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 ( )
