Description

Cookie is plain and shy, not the confident, popular girl her father wanted when he named her Beauty Cookson. Her mother helps her cook up a clever scheme to change her image--but, as usual, Dad doesn't approve, and this time his anger reaches frightening new heights. Will Cookie find the strength to stand up for herself? Honest and emotionally resonant, COOKIE faces tough issues with the unflinching directness and unflagging tenderness that make Jacqueline Wilson one of today's most admired-and popular-authors for young people.

Praise For Cookie

“Wilson’s talent shows again in this novel with strong, compelling characters and a plot that makes the book hard to put down.”—School Library Journal

Wilson’s extraordinary strength is the reliable, deeply comforting nature of her fiction, in which tough subjects are made approachable for younger readers.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Dame Wilson’s fluid mastery of realistic family-and-friend problems is clear in this title, and, as Wilson's previous books, Sharratt’s cartoon-style illustrations introduce and foreshadow the action in each chapter.” —Booklist
