Description

MANDY WHITE IS a good girl whom the bad girls like to pick on—until a bigger, badder girl makes her her special friend. Tanya is a foster child across the street, and she’s nothing like good little Mandy. She’s fun and she’s tough and she wears really cool clothes. Of course, Mandy’s overprotective mother wants her precious little daughter to have nothing to do with the new neighbor. . . .




About the Author
Jacqueline Wilson was born in Bath in 1945, but spent most of her childhood in Kingston-on-Thames. She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first "novel" when she was nine, filling in countless Woolworths exercise books as she grew up. As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her!) before turning to writing novels full-time. One of Jacqueline s most successful and enduring creations has been the famous Tracy Beaker, who first appeared in 1991 in The Story of Tracy Beaker. This was also the first of her books to be illustrated by Nick Sharratt. Since then Jacqueline has been on countless awards shortlists and has gone on to win many awards.

Nick Sharratt has illustrated many books for children, including the bestselling novels of Jacqueline Wilson and "When a Monster Is Born" by Sean Taylor. He lives in London.
