'My Mum Tracy Beaker' sees the main character struggle to make ends meet as a single mother living on a on a 'tough' housing estate in London.

Speaking about the book Wilson said, 'When I realised just how long ago it was since I wrote the first Tracy Beaker book, I thought 'if we were in real time, Tracy herself would be in her 30s.'

'And I've always thought that, even though Tracy had lots of problems in her life and a pretty rubbish mum who was never there for her, Tracy herself would be a good mum, no matter what.'
