When publishers Scholastic Australia came knocking on Tania’s door asking her to write a book, she jumped at the chance. Aimed at the ‘tween’ market, Tracy Lacy Is Completely Coo-Coo Bananas tells the story of 12 year old Tracy and her transition from Primary to Secondary School, something she stands little to no chance of surviving. Her skew-eyed view of the world is constantly getting her into trouble. So with best friends Ag and Ponky, Tracy embarks on an elaborate self-devised self-improvement boot-camp over the summer holidays. Will she find the skills she needs to survive ? Whatever the case, it’s fun watching her try.
