" A brilliant writer of wit and subtlety." - "The Times" "A brilliant writer of wit and subtlety." -"The Times"
Everybody knows Tracy Beaker, Jacqueline Wilson's best-loved character. But what do they know about Jacqueline herself? In this fascinating book, discover: how Jacky played with paper dolls like April in "Dustbin Baby"; how she dealt with an unpredictable father like Prue in "Love Lessons"; how she sat entrance exams like Ruby in "Double Act". But most of all how Jacky loved reading and writing stories. Losing herself in a new world was the best possible way she could think of spending her time. From the very first story she wrote, "Meet the Maggots", it was clear that this little girl had a very vivid imagination. But who would've guessed that she would grow up to be the mega-bestselling, award-winning Jacqueline Wilson! Jacqueline Wilson takes a look back at her own childhood in this captivating story of friendships, loneliness, books, toys, parents and much more. She explores her early years with the same warmth and lightness of touch that imbues her novels and covers such difficult issues as her parents' extra-marital affairs with delicacy.With photographs and new illustrations by Nick Sharratt, this book is a delight for all of Jacky's fans, and a treat for any new readers too.

This is not a fictional story - it's a little autobiography-type book where Jacqueline Wilson's documents her childhood, and it's written like one of her stories!
I loved it and it's pretty enjoyable. She describes funny things that have happened in her life, stories funny stories about her and her friends, and some stories which lightly brush on subjects like puberty and cancer related to her friends (Just as a little warning to younger potential readers), stories about her holidays and school:-)
I would recommend it for children aged from about nine? x
