Gemma and Alice were born on the same day and have been devoted best friends ever since. Despite Gemma's larger-than-life personality and Alice's quieter, calmer character, the two are inseparable - until Alice has to move house, all the way to Scotland. Gemma is utterly distraught, particularly at the thought that Alice might find a new best friend. Is there anything Gem's brothers, or perhaps her grandad, can do to help?


Another Jacqueline Wilson adventure - at one point I was worried we were going down a really dark route with our two kids attempting to run away to London but thankfully they didn’t quite get there. Actually it was a really great way of reading and thinking about growing up and growing apart - it’s difficult to be separated from your best friend, but it can also broaden your horizons and make you see things differently. There were a LOT of cakes in it though, I felt sick just reading it.
