Review quote

"Told in the zany, entirely convincing voice of Tracy Beaker herself . . . The strains of communal life with other children, rivalries and friendships and jokes, all spring to life, and Tracy's prose is decorated throughout with cheeky line drawings" * The Sunday Times * "An appealing mix of events and reactions that are both entertaining and moving. A book that lingers in the mind long after it is put down" * Guardian * "A sensitive and beautifully observed story . . . Our young readers appreciated both the humour and the pathos" * Federation of Children's Book Groups, 1991 Pick of the Year * "Tracy is lively and spirited, and her narrative funny and moving" * The Bookseller * "A breath of fresh air. It is entertaining yet tender but by no means sentimental when it confronts the need we all have for commitment in relationships, for trust, for love . . . A real bonus is that the book genuinely celebrates the act of writing - and not by preaching, I promise" * The School Librarian *
