Gemma and Alice, born on the same day and in the same hospital, have been devoted friends all their lives. They see each other everyday, and despite their different interests and personalities, they are inseparable. They're not one bit alike: Gemma loves football while Alice prefers drawing; and Gemma never stops talking while Alice is more likely to be listening; but somehow these little things never seem to affect their relationship. As best friends, they share absolutely everything. Then one day Gemma peeks into Alice's diary, and finds out there's something that Alice isn't sharing. And when Gemma finally discovers what it is, she isn't sure if she and Alice can stay Best Friends For Ever. Download and start listening now!

    " Jacqueline Wilson, Best Friends was an exceptional read, as are most of her books. 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. 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. Their dissimilarity in personality and physical appearance is what fuels their friendship and makes them compatible in that, what one lacks in, the other makes up for and vice versa. Their friendship is tested when Alice's father takes up a new job opportunity in Scotland and decides to move the family in a plight to raise their living standards for the finer things in life. The girls are obviously displeased, as they will no longer be able to see each other as often so decides to run away with only ten pounds between them. This get-away was short lived when they were spotted and as a result was in trouble with each of their parents. However, Gemma received the most punishment, being the more boisterous of the two, was always deemed as the trouble maker and was forbidden to see Alice. The girls were very distressed when Alice eventually moved; however they found ways of contacting each other and Gemma jumped at the chance when her grandfather offered to take her to see Alice. But when Gemma arrives she is confronted with a potential threat that is, Fiona, Alice's new friend. After Gemma loses her temper, Alice's mother, once again forbids Gemma having contact with Alice. Gemma is distraught, and thinks Alice has moved on when she doesn't receive a birthday card from her. Gemma is reassured when Alice manages to not only send a card but a special present for her. 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. She does this through use of description and emotional speech. The reader can experience every scene through the imagery created. I would recommend this book to children in year 2/3 and above. "
