Hi! I'm Charlie (DON'T call me Charlotte - ever!). History is boring, right? Wrong! The Victorians weren't all deadly dull and drippy. Lottie certainly isn't. She's eleven - like me - but she's left school and has a job as a nursery maid. Her life is really hard, just work work work, but I bet she'd know what to do about my mum's awful boyfriend and his wimpy little son. I bet she wouldn't mess it all up like I do . . .

Jacqueline Wilson is one of the most popular writers for children in Britain today, and is ground-breaking in her frank treatment of issues such as adoption, divorce and death. Addressing Wilson's work from a variety of perspectives, this exciting volume brings together a range of new critical essays from an international team of scholars.
Ellie is planning to recreate herself in every way now that she is in ninth grade, but in order to get a boyfriend, she realizes that she may have to settle for just about anyone if she wants to get one quickly.
Shy, mild Mandy has been bullied at school for as long as she can remember. That's why she is delighted when cheeky, daring, full-of-fun Tanya picks her as a friend. Mum isn't happy - she thinks Tanya's a BAD GIRL and a bad influence on her daughter. But Mandy loves spending time with her brilliant new friend, and is sure Tanya can only get her out of trouble, not into it . . . or could she?
Ellie finally meets a boy. The right boy. And she wants to spend all her time with him. Her curfew is way too early, but if her stepmother doesn’t tell, her father will never know she’s been out late. It’s not like anything bad is going to happen, and her father doesn’t need to know what she does every minute of every day. As long as she brings her friends along, everything should be all right. Too bad the best laid plans often go wrong!
A wonderful collection of linked short stories from this enormously popular and bestselling author. Is anything bothering you? Problems in school or at home? Don’t know what to do or where to turn? With Mr. Speed at the head of the class, help is only as far as the nearest computer! All his students have to do is log on to the Worry Web Site and wait for the good advice they need. . . . Like Holly, who wants a wicked stepmom but learns to accept a nice new friend. Or Greg, who thinks his crush is hopeless until a school trip comes along. Or Samantha, who feels as if everything is wrong but finds a place where something feels right. No problem is too large or too small for the Worry Web Site—or for one special teacher.
Introducing Tracy Beaker, 10-year-old girl-wonder and the daughter of a famous Hollywood actress . . . sort of. Tracy Beaker’s not exactly sure what her mother does, because Tracy has been in foster care for as long as she can remember. She has a picture of her mother, who’s pretty enough to be in movies, so maybe she is. And maybe one day Tracy’s mother will show up and reclaim her long-lost daughter, and together they’ll have fabulous adventures. Then again, maybe she won’t. In the meantime, Tracy’s doing everything she can to take care of herself–even though she has to share her birthday cake with silly Petey Ingham just because they have the same birthday . . . and even though the other girls she lives with are mean and nasty and rude and horrible. Mostly. Then a journalist shows up to write a story about their orphanage, and she and Tracy strike up a special friendship. In a story written with humor and sensitivity, Tracy emerges as a spirited girl who’s not quite as tough as she lets everybody think she is.
