We Are The Beaker Girls

Jacqueline Sharratt Wilson et al.

2019

Jess Beaker is having an amazing summer at her new seaside home! Jess and her mum Tracy who grew up in care have left the Duke Estate behind them, and have moved to Cooksea. They have new friends, their dog Alfie, and they’re running an antiques shop called… The Dumping Ground! But as lovely as it is to live by the sea, trouble still seems to be following the Beaker Girls. Horrible Sean is back on the scene, a local kid is picking on Jess, and their beloved Cam isn’t just round the corner any more. Can the Beaker Girls make a success of their new life? Tracy won’t go rushing back to that awful boyfriend … will she?
