Double Act won the prestigious Smarties Medal and the Children’s Book Award as well as being highly commended for the Carnegie Medal. The book is about two best friends, namely Gemma and Alice who have been together since birth and who are also like chalk and cheese.

All the books that I have mentioned here I really enjoyed and want to share my loves of books by Jacqueline Wilson because I'm a huge fan of hers. Gemma is sure they share everything – until she finds out that Alice has something she’s not sharing: a secret that will change their friendship forever. The author's style of writing is very open and honest and this allows the reader to understand how each character feels at every stage.In the book Karen Barlow is married to Bob and the move to Scotland was due to Bob getting a new job. It was lovely to read this one to my daughter and reminisce, but also to see how different it seemed to me reading now as an adult.

When Alice's dad gets a new job in Scotland, Gemma is distraught and does everything she can to keep Alice for herself, scared that she'll find a new best friend in Scotland and forget all about her. Gemma is a rather feisty character; a tomboy who loves to get messy and always seem to end up breaking the rules. The trouble with being a child is that you aren't really in control of the important things, and everyone likes to think they are in control of the things that matter.

Best Friends by Jacqueline Wilson is the story of two friends, Gemma and Alice, who share the same birthday and always wish to remain best friends forever when they blow the candles out on their cake. In the book, Gemma, Alice, and Biscuits' class teacher is Mrs Watson; in the TV series the class teacher is Miss Mancer (pronounced "Maneer"). The story ends on Gemma (and Alice's) birthday, when she celebrates with her family, Biscuits, and Biscuits' family.

Alice and Gemma were born on the same day and even with very different personalities were best of friends. The Illustrated Mum won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Award, the 1999 Children’s Book of the Year at the British Book Awards and was also shortlisted for the 1999 Whitbread Children’s Book Award. I think that this book was really amazing as I'm a BIG fan of Jacqueline Wilson (n I actually mean it! Best Friends by Jacqueline Wilson is all about two best friends who were so close since they were born. He moved to Australia due to the fact they had no money, at least in Best Friends they get reunited thanks to Gemma’s Grandad.In 2002 Jacqueline was awarded the OBE for services to literacy in schools and from 2005 to 2007 she was the Children’s Laureate. Throughout the book, the author makes the reader feel just how distressing it must have been for the two best friends after they learned of their forced separation. Gemma and Alice have been best friends since they were both born on the same day in the same hospital. 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, one of the two best friends is the loud trouble maker, but still cares very dearly about her best friend Alice.
