Check out my review on my blog HERE This is the first book in years that I have been so excited about that I purchased it on its release day If you don't know Jacueline Wilson has played a huge part in not only helping me fall in love with books but also in my formative years as a child and teenager When I found out that Jacueline was revisiting the character of Tracey as an adult I knew it was going to be one I needed to buy The novel is so perfectly reminiscent of old Jacueline Wilson novels while also being set in the modern day Tracey now has a child and it is so interesting to see how this stroppy moody girl has grown into an independent responsible and fiercely protective mother of her child Jess Jess and Tracey's relationship is so lovely and caring It is so heart warming to read about their loving relationship when usually in Wilson's novels the children are in the mix of very volatile dysfunctional family's Another aspect I enjoyed of the novel was the voice of Jess Wilson has perfectly captured the timid Jess's voice and en captured the modern young girl We see this as Jess names her imaginary dog Snapchat and the difference in the playground talk she experiences at school Jess was such a wonderful character to read about fiercely loyal to her mum funny shy and all round adorable The writing style of the novel is exactly what you expect from Jacueline beautiful descriptions funny scenes family moments and all accompanied by Nick Sharratts wonderful illustrations Reading this novel was like slipping into a warm bath of nostalgia for me I loved revisiting all of these old characters again in modern setting and seeing how life has changed after we turned that final page all those years ago Another interesting part I enjoyed was the slight hinting at Cam's sexuality as she develops a close relationship with a woman Although I would have loved to see this explicitly stated I think it was great to include in the novel Overall the novel was wonderful nostalgia bliss Tracey Beaker has got to be one of the most iconic characters in children's literature and this novel will definitely stay with me


Wilson There are many interesting things in this book. I don't believe that books have age limits a well written book is a well written book whomever the intended audience might be I read the three Tracey Beaker novels as a child and am now in my thirties reading this book to make myself smile In many ways it was everything I expected Jacueline Wilson has a limited number of leading characters available to her imagination I would not expect a lot of deviation from an author so prolific so this honestly is not a criticism so I knew Jess would either be loud and brash or a uiet bookworm I loved how Cam was both no nonsense and very maternal I smiled at all the familiar turns of phrase and I was at first sceptical but gradually very impressed with the way Sean's character was revealed Jacueline Wilson maybe not nowadays uite so much but certainly twenty years ago was pretty amazing for being one of the only writers of such difficult subjects for children and this is still where she shinesBut it was also where she disappointed meThere were other areas that jarred I found Tracey's constant cheerful and perfectly recalled references to her own past grating and unnecessary I found the ending tacked on and absurd considering today's jobhousing market It irritated me that Cam and Mary were having a relationship but this was never once directly mentioned only coyly alluded to But what upset me was that Sean was controlling and a liar who tried to turn Tracey into someone she wasn't but when Tracey split up with him these facts were never addressed Tracey was depressed when they split up as would be expected but I kept waiting for Tracey or Cam or Jess to point out that he was a seriously nasty piece of work and Tracey deserved to be treated like a human being by a partner But it never happened; the reader from Tracey's reaction and even Jess' disappointment upon returning to their council flat could easily be left thinking that Tracey missed out on an opportunity and she probably should have put up and shut up It seemed so important that everyone was nice and I had forgotten this about Wilson's writing it kills the realism arguable as a priority I know and prevents characters from defending themselves well which should matter when you have a direct line to young girlsWilson's works always contain strong messages of family love and friendship which is why they continue to sell we love her I feel in this book however she missed something significant in the edit and wish she would write the final third again

'I wish there was a sport called Reading a Book where competitors had to choose the best book in the library find the cosiest corner and read' Jess Beaker in 'My Mum Tracy Beaker'๐Ÿ“–I've been saving this one for a little while and now I've finally read it and loved it even than I had expected Some context I stumbled across Jacueline Wilson as a kid Despite her being hugely popular I was so focused on finding every pony themed book I could get my hands on that I was oblivious to her until about 11 or 12 From my first Jacueline Wilson book Glubbslyme a new obsession began Over the years I have built up a collection of most of her books I still have a few to go and have kept reading them long past the intended reading age Tracy Beaker is probably her most famous character As well as the original trilogy of books which I own in a lovely glittery blue bind up it's one of my favourite books that I have there was a TV show which I also loved In fact I can think of few children's adaptations that worked so well Apparently there was also a show following an older Tracy now working at the Dumping Ground the childrens home she grew up in but I don't think that aired in New Zealand If it did I completely failed to notice it though I'd have liked to see it Tracy is a tough outrageous brave troubled character who leaps off the page and is illustrated perfectly by Nick Sharratt The actress that played her in the show was also a perfect casting choice in my opinion So perhaps than any other Jacueline Wilson character Tracy is woven through my childhood as a sort of ever present ever engaging presence I loved her so much and still do so I was thrilled when I heard about this book It actually first came to my attention because people on the Internet were angry about it of course they were I was just excited I think the Internet calmed down eventually and the actress who played Tracy on TV wrote a really nice opinion piece about it all which I enjoyed reading I'd link it but I'm using the App on my phone and its all a bit beyond me to be honest I think it was for The Guardian if you're interested in looking it up The reason for the long history is just to try and convey the level of investment I have in Tracy and maybe give an idea of why it was so exciting to catch up with her againShe's an adult now with a daughter of her own the Jessica Bluebell Camilla Beaker I uoted at the opening of this review Longtime fans will understand the significance of her middle names Jess is a wonderful character and uite different from her mother where Tracy is fierce boisterous and toughish Jess is shy and anxious They both have brilliantly vivid imaginations thoughTracy is an excellent mum Not a perfect one by any means but a truly good one and she and Jess have a great relationship Again if you know Tracy's history this is very important But Tracy has a new boyfriendfiance who takes them to live in his mansion and offers them the life that Tracy dreamed of as a kid What I love about this is that Sean the boyfriend isn't exactly the villain and you can see the many reasons Tracy is with him other than the money even though they are rather mismatched I won't detail the plot any further as I'd hate to ruin it for anyone but it was wonderful to see who popped up again Cam Tracy's foster mum is in it a lot and I adored her than ever One of the best appearances came near the end of the book and made me cry bit Actually I got uite teary throughout much of the book I didn't want it to end and was relieved when I saw there'll be another oneIf you haven't already read the Tracy Beaker books you could still pick this up and enjoy it but knowing the events of the first three does heighten the significance of many things and adds so much And if Tracy was a childhood favourite this is definitely worth getting ๐Ÿ“šOne of my favourites of the year so far๐Ÿ’–
