We Are the Beaker Girls

Author(s): Jacqueline Wilson

Middle Fiction

Jacqueline Wilson's FUNNIEST, FIERCEST and most BELOVED new heroine JESS BEAKER returns for another AMAZING ADVENTURE.

Jess and Tracy Beaker have found happiness in The Dumping Ground. Not that Dumping Ground- the children's home that Tracy grew up in- but a seaside antique shop full of treasures, along with Flo, the owner, and Alfie, their dog.

Jess is looking for a fantastic new boyfriend for her mum (mostly because Tracy's awful ex Sean is back on the scene). But Jess has bigger problems of her own. She's being picked on by a local kid who's got it in for her. But when Jess uncovers the truth about her new enemy, it means big changes for the Beaker Girls...

*The SEQUEL to the award-winning MY MUM TRACY BEAKER*

Praise for Tracy Beaker-

'Wilson can still step effortlessly into the mind of a nine year old, and her chatty prose will sweep you along' - The Daily Telegraph

'This warm-hearted story about the importance of family and friends is classic Jacqueline Wilson' - First News

' A cosy woolly jumper of a book about wish fulfilment and its alternatives' - The Observer


Ruth's Review:

Jess and her mum, Tracy Beaker, now live in The Dumping Ground, a seaside antiques shop with its owner Flo, a former TV sitcom actress, having left London and Tracy's ex-boyfriend, football star Sean Godfrey, far behind them. But while their new life is wonderful, Jess still has a few niggling problems. A local kid is picking on her and she's worried that her mum and Sean will get back together, especially when Sean brings her old school friend Tyrone down for a visit. So she starts to play matchmaker...

Jess and Tracy have some big changes to face in their lives when someone's real identity is revealed and people from Tracy's past at the dreaded children's home reappear.

We are the Beaker Girls is a sparkling sequel to My Mum, Tracy Beakerand girls, in particular, aged 8 to 12 will love the humour and themes of friendship, family and compassion.

Jess is a wonderful "Mini Tracy" but not quite as feisty as her mother was in the original Tracy Beaker stories. Wilson's focus on fostering and runaway children adds a special poignancy.
