Description of this Book

I'm Tracy Beaker, the great inventor of extremely outrageous dares - and I dare you to read a more brilliant story than this! 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 bunk 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 Tracy Beaker!
