Publisher's Summary

Beauty Cookson is no beauty. She's a plain, timid girl who constantly feels inferior to the super-confident, snooty girls at school. Worse than the teasing in the playground, though, is the unpredictable, hurtful criticism from her father. Beauty and her meek, sweet mother live in uneasy fear of his fierce rages, sparked whenever they break one of his fussy house rules.

Eventually, after an unbearable birthday party and the very real threat of Dad's out-of-control temper, Mum and Beauty run away. Finding themselves in a quiet, idyllic seaside village, their new-found freedom and a moment of culinary inspiration give them a hobby, an income and even a new nickname for Beauty. Can they begin a happier, sweeter life – without Dad?

Love!

Great story, with a wonderful central character. Very positive message for young girls too-be yourself. Also, love flinty Williams as the narrator too.

Cookie book review

I really enjoyed this book, I have listened to it so many times. I would recommend this book to children aged 8-11 years. The only this I that could make this book better is if the story went on a little longer. Otherwise a really lovely story! 👍🏼

Cookie

so Cookie is really good Jacqueline Wilson makes such awesome books I think the most emotional part was when Beauty had Lily in her lap and Sam beside her there was a part I didn't like when birthday died😭 and when the dad got mad and when Skye bullies Beauty but the rest was really good 🙂🙃🤪😛😋😜🎭🎐🎑🎍⛱️🗾🍏🍠🥒🧓🧕👩‍⚕️👱👩‍💻👩‍🏫🤗
