Product description

I'M TRACY BEAKER, THE GREAT INVENTOR OF EXTREMELY OUTRAGEOUS DARES - AND I DARE YOU TO READ A MORE BRILLIANT STORY THAN THIS! I've bought a big fat purple notebook for writing down all my mega-manic ultra-scary stories in. But especially for my own story. Of how my foster-mum, Cam, has turned out to be a real meanie. No designer clothes, when I really need them. A pokey flat, and a horrible new school. No wonder I bunk off ...Still, it will have to do until my real mum comes and gets me. And until then, no-one is going to be better at the Dare Game than Tracy Beaker!

Review quote

"Wilson tackles subjects that other writers shy away from and this meaty read will win her more fans" Guardian "Thoughtful sequel ... Wilson has a genius for conveying tricky material to those readers who can handle it" The Times "Without doubt the finest writer for the 8-12 age group we have, I dare you to miss this one" Books Etc
