The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Starring Tracy Beaker
Publisher: Random House
Tracy Beaker is back and this time she's been cast as Ebenezer Scrooge in her school play. Bringing her usual mixture of confidence and fiery temper to the part, Tracy is determined to make the most of her starring role - not least because she's invited her mother along to watch her perform.
With help from her potential foster mother Cam, Tracy prepares for her part and looks forward to a reunion with her mother. As usual things don’t turn out exactly as Tracy expects but she and Cam eventually manage to create a Christmas to remember.
Sensitively and humorously written, the reader aches for Tracy and her desire for acknowledgement from her absent mother. Still as fresh as the first Tracy Beaker novel 15 years ago, this will delight Tracy's army of fans and new readers alike.
