Gemma and Alice, born on the same day, 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 that is 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? Established fans, especially male readers, will be delighted to re-encounter the flamboyant Biscuits, co-star of Buried Alive! and Cliffhanger. A charming, funny and touching story will be adored by all Wilson fans from 7 upwards.

A touching story about a friendship between two little girls. When one moves away they are upset and the one being left behind in particular tries to stop things. It's very sad because the moving girl's mother doesn't approve of her - this is an awful thing in friendships but it does happen in real life (sometimes for good reason, soemtimes not). So the book is painful in some ways especially if you've ever been a child on the receiving end of that. This was made into a BBC TV series with excellent acting as the best friends.
