Tracy is ten years old. She lives in a Children's Home but would like a real home one day, with a real family. Meet Tracy, follow her story and share her hopes for the future in this beautifully observed, touching and often very funny tale, all told in Tracy's own words.

In a series of stories written with humor and sensitivity, Tracy emerges as a spirited girl who’s not quite as tough as she lets everybody think she is. With lively illustrations by Nick Sharratt, the Tracy Beaker books are every bit as funny and engaging as The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series they later inspired.
