LITERARY SUPERSTAR JACQUELINE WILSON TELLS A UNIVERSAL STORY

about what it means to be Best Friends Forever. Gemma and Alice have been best friends since they were born on the same day in the same hospital—it doesn’t matter that Gemma loves soccer while Alice prefers drawing, or that Gemma is always getting into trouble while Alice is a model student and daughter. But when Alice has to move to Scotland with her family, their friendship is put to the test. Is Best Friends Forever stronger than five hundred miles? Readers will relate to the heroic efforts the girls make to maintain their friendship and the small disasters of ‘tween life that they encounter along the way. Tender, funny, and always honest, BEST FRIENDS is the book to win American readers into the legions of fans Jacqueline Wilson has world-wide.

    This is an amazing book about best friends who've known each other since birth. Then one has to move, and it's like the whole world is crashing down on them. This book is just so fun to read, and the type you could read any time of day without much concentration! I could read this 20 times without getting tired of it since I think it's super fun and entertaining! 5 stars for sure! It's one of my favorite books.

            I decided to read this as I love Jacky and her books. I liked this friendship story as it's about two opposite girls and one is fiery, while the other is quiet. ***SPOILER ALERT***, one of these friends is keeping a secret!!!
