Childhood (life in care)
Justine is a secondary character in the Tracy Beaker series. She arrives at the Dumping Ground as the new girl, residing in Tracy's former bedroom, much to Tracy's dismay. She also became friends with Louise Goven, Tracy's former best friend. Behind Justine's back, Tracy sneaks in Justine's room and accidentally breaks her clock whilst snooping around in her room, which Justine was furious about. She was present when a struggling author, Cam Lawson, visited the Dumping Ground as a guest. However, Tracy gets fostered, leaving her at the Dumping Ground. ("The Story of Tracy Beaker").
At the auditions, Justine was chosen to play Jacob Marley in the Christmas production.
In the TV series, Justine is new in the first series. Because she arrives before Tracy returns, she gets Tracy's old room and she steals her best friend, Louise Goven. She and Tracy once have a dare contest that ends with Tracy eating a worm. She is always determined to dampen Tracy's spirits, but sometimes dampens her own when she doesn't get her own way. Alot of the times when she is going to meet her dad he doesn't turn up.
In the second series, she and the other kids try to trick Nathan Jones, the trainee care worker, but only succeed thanks to Tracy. Also, she and Louise make a bedsit after Tracy gives them the idea. Another major episode involving her is when her dad marries his girlfriend, Carrie, and she has to wear a horrible yellow dress. Eventually, the dress is ruined and she goes in her best party clothes. She also had a Tv in her room, from her dad, but tracy starts a campaigne about Elaine letting somebody have a tv in their room.When Louise leaves the care home for her new life, Justine is incredibly depressed and Tracy is told to cheer her up.
In the third series, Justine actually joins the alliance, "If Tracy goes, we all go" when Shelley Appleton plans on moving her to another care home. She becomes startled when Carrie reveals that she and her dad are going to have a baby but eventually warms up to the idea. Eventually, her dad and Carrie tell her that they want her to move back in and she accepts. The series finale is her leaving party.
For some reason, Justine is still living at the dumping ground in the movie. She is the first person to see Tracy's mum and she starts to become pleased when Tracy warms up to her mum. However, when Tracy runs away to find her, she takes Justine's mobile, which makes Justine determined to find her. She accidentally reveals her location to Cam who sets off in the dumping ground bus. Justine goes with her, wanting her phone. At the end she helps with Tracy's birthday party.
She was only seen once in the fourth series.
Justine is perhaps the main protagonist in the fifth series, where it was revealed that Carrie gave birth to a little boy called Billy. After having to move out of her own room for her cousin John, she angrily moves back to the dumping ground, only to find that she has to share her room with new arrival Rebecca Chalmers. She instantly develops a rivalry with her and they are always arguing. At first she refuses to see her dad but at Guest Day gets used to her cousin after he eats some nuts. In the final episode she attends Cam's wedding and later tells Tracy that she's giving her dad another go.
Tracy Beaker Returns
Justine appears one TRB third series episode. She also appears in three of the books and the movie. She is mentioned in Tracy Beaker Returns and vists Tracy in Series 3 where she is an award winning estate agent and is engaged to be married to her fiance Charlie. This didn't happened because he turned out to be a con artist (in cahoots with his mother) who was only going to marry her for her money. She also formed a bond with Carmen.
