56. The Story Of Tracy Beaker by Jacqueline Wilson and Nick Sharratt Random House, £5.99
Human, honest and told in a language that doesn’t patronise children, Jacqueline Wilson’s stories don’t boast happy endings, yet they have become incredibly successful. Tracy Beaker is a ten-year-old in a care home with apparent “behavioural difficulties” – she has become an anti-hero for our times.
