The Story of Tracy Beaker is getting a sequel and this time, she’s all grown up

Orlaith Condon

One of our favourite books from our childhood is set to return.

Dame Jacqueline Wilson has confirmed that she is writing another sequel to the much-loved The Story of Tracy Beaker.

For those of you who don’t remember, the book tells the story of orphan Tracy who lives in a care home and usually finds herself in all sorts of bad situations.

Since the original, Jacqueline has added three more books added to the series and, of course, the popular TV show.

The show ran for five seasons from 2002 till 2005, and was followed by spin-offs like Tracy Beaker Returns, telling the story of Tracy in her new role as a social worker, and The Dumping Ground, with Tracy gone they focussed on the stories of the other children in the care home.

However, Tracy is now all grown up and Jacqueline says her next chapter will focus on her life as a mum and career woman.

Unlike the original, the new book will be narrated through Tracy’s daughter’s point of view.
