About this title

Synopsis:

I'm Tracy Beaker, the Great Inventor of Extremely Outrageous Dares – and I dare YOU not to say this is the most brilliant story ever! I've bought a big fat purple notebook for writing down all my mega-manic ultra-scary stories in. But especially for my own story. Of how my foster-mum, Cam, has turned out to be a real meanie. No designer clothes, when I really need them. A pokey flat, and a horrible new school. No wonder I keep bunking off ... Still, it will have to do until my real mum comes and gets me. And until then, no-one is going to be better at the Dare Game than me!

Review:

Just when you think Jacqueline Wilson cannot possibly get any better, back she comes with another book to knock your socks off--in this instance, it is the return of one of Wilson's greatest heroines, Tracy Beaker.

The Story of Tracy Beaker introduced us to a mischievous 10-year-old girl coping with life in a children's home, lurching from one foster home to another and waiting for her ever-so-glamorous mum to come and take her away from it all.The Dare Game picks up where The Story of Tracy Beaker left off, with Tracy firmly ensconced in the home of foster mother Cam, a creative sort who was instantly drawn to the troubled child and who fought to win the right to take care of her.

The trouble is, Tracy thought things would be perfect with Cam but reality is tough. After all, it's hardly fair that Cam refuses to buy her foster daughter designer clothes and give her loads of money, now is it? So the petulant Tracy bunks off school and hides out in her secret place to avoid being teased by the other pupils and to stop herself from strangling Vomity Bagley, the English teacher. But one day her haven is disturbed by two very different boys, each dealing with their own problematic family lives, and the three form a friendship based on playing The Dare Game ... a game that gets more dangerous as Tracy's life becomes even more unsettled.

Trying to find new words to describe Wilson's writing is almost impossible--almost every review of any of her books is sure to feature "touching, funny and beautifully observed". The Dare Game is no exception. Tracy Beaker is a classic Wilson heroine--troubled, feisty and fired by humour, hope and true grit--and this superb novel is knock-em-dead proof that Jacqueline Wilson is simply the best. Age 8 and over --Susan Harrison
