Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'Gripping, funny and sensitively written.' -- The Independent on Sunday 'A modern story, realistic with lots of witty, offbeat humour.' -- The Daily Telegraph 'A witty and moving tale of divorce.' -- The Times 'A deeply moving account of a child's agony and bewilderment as she suffers from her parents' divorce. Feelings tumble out in a cascade of experiences, at once painful and funny. Language is racy and modern, superbly capturing the experience of many children today.' -- Junior Education

Author's Bio

Jacqueline Wilson was born in Bath in 1945, but spent most of her childhood in Kingston-on-Thames. She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first 'novel' when she was nine, filling in countless Woolworths' exercise books as she grew up. As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her!) before turning to writing novels full-time. One of Jacqueline's most successful and enduring creations has been the famous Tracy Beaker, who first appeared in 1991 in The Story of Tracy Beaker. This was also the first of her books to be illustrated by Nick Sharratt. Since then Jacqueline has been on countless awards shortlists and has gone on to win many awards. Jacqueline is one of the UK's favourite authors, and her books are loved and cherished by young readers not only in the UK but all over the world. She has sold millions of books and in the UK alone the total now stands at over 35 million! In 2002 Jacqueline was awarded the OBE for services to literacy in schools and from 2005 to 2007 she was the Children's Laureate. In 2008 she became Dame Jacqueline Wilson. Lesley Dunlop, born 10 March 1956, is a British actress. She is best known for her roles as Anna Kirkwall in Where the Heart Is and her current role as Brenda Walker in Emmerdale. Daughter of the television writer Pat Dunlop, she began her career as a child actress in the 1970s and never looked back. Lesley Dunlop has two daughters with the actor Christopher Guard.
