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.

I found this book to be totally unsuitable for any child. Not only does it contain explicit language, but it also has graphic scenes of abuse. I was sorely disappointed in this book and the author.

Beauty Cookson hates her name because she insists it doesn't fit someone as plain and awkward as she is. Her father rules the house and everyone in it. He constantly ridicules Beauty's mother. One day he does something so awful that both mother and daughter flee the house. They accidentally end up in Rabbit Cove where they find a place to live but how will Beauty's mother ever find a job that she can do? Reviewed by BPL volunteer LS
