Applicability of cancellation rights: Legal rights of cancellation under the Distance Selling Regulations available for UK or EU consumers do not apply to certain products and services. I don't believe that books have age limits: a well-written book is a well-written book, whomever the intended audience might be. and prevents characters from defending themselves well, which should matter when you have a direct line to young girls. The novel is so perfectly reminiscent of "old" Jacqueline Wilson novels while also being set in the modern day.

The new faces made up for it though, especially Jordan Duvigneau's Football, aka Sean Godfrey (did they mention that was his name?Then Tracy bumps into an old friend - an unfamiliar face for fans of the TV series, but Dare Game fans will recognise the name Football - who is now a recently retired professional footballer and whose relationship with Tracy will turn the Beaker girls' lives upside down. I was a little bit disappointed that the character who shows up in the final scene of the book wasn't played by the same actor, and I wasn't keen on the replacement casting.

The story is told from the point of view of Jess Beaker, Tracy's ten year old daughter (played by Emma Maggie Davies, who does a good job in the role) who lives with her mum on a council estate. As a childhood lover of the original Tracy Beaker books, like many others in this camp I was excited to read this new updated as to how Tracy's life would progress beyond the Dumping Ground.

I was also surprised, but pleased, by the small scene between Tracy and Jess that implied depression. Another interesting part, I enjoyed was the slight hinting at Cam's sexuality as she develops a close relationship with a woman. I remember a teacher telling me that they dealt with too grown-up themes, but lots of children actually go through the situations in her books.
