He used to work as a taxi driver like his son (Gemma's father) but retired just as Gemma's mother went back to work full-time - however, he steps in to the taxi firm office when they need another driver. it is an amazing story about two best friends that need to separate from each other and then a miracle happens and the two best friends are going to get together.

i recommend this for 7 - 10 years old Gemma and Alice are two very different girls but that doesnt stop them bieng bffs but when Alice mooves to Scotland how will Gemma cope? Billy ' Biscuits' Mcvitie: The girls' schoolfriend, a large, tubby boy who loves food, both eating and cooking.Gemma is intimidated by Flora's friendship with Alice and approval from Alice's mother (including when Flora lies about Alice saying Gemma's family are "quite poor" regarding how a china doll came to fruition - Gemma's late grandmother left the doll to her, which she later gave Alice). I would still recommend it to a friend because I did enjoy it but I would say that 8 year old would like this better than a 12 year old!

She is the 2005-2007 British Children's Laureate, and has won numerous major literary awards, including the Guardian Children's Fiction Award, the Smarties Prize, and the Children's Book of the Year. The two are polar opposites; Gemma is a tomboy who likes playing wild and exciting sports, while Alice is girly and loves ballet and the color pink. Gemma is a rather feisty character; a tomboy who loves to get messy and always seem to end up breaking the rules. After a disagreement Alice had to move to Scotland and Gemma feared they would no longer be friends.

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. Jacqueline Wilson is the author of almost one hundred books, including Candyfloss , available in paperback from Square Fish. Upon arrival at Alice's new house the two share a happy reunion and Gemma is allowed to stay for the day.

This book is about two girls who are almost complete opposite to one another, they are best friends but unfortunately one of them moves to Scotland, as they are so upset by this they runaway together but they get cought! The simple illustrations throughout the book are helpful in keeping the young reader engaged without taking too much away from the writing as Wilson gives detailed descriptions of each character. Gemma the main character is heartborken when she discovers that Alice and her family are moving away to Scotland. Gemma and Alice will forever be apart unless they think of something to help them get through them growing apart.Double Act won the prestigious Smarties Medal and the Children’s Book Award as well as being highly commended for the Carnegie Medal. In 2002 Jacqueline was awarded the OBE for services to literacy in schools and from 2005 to 2007 she was the Children’s Laureate. 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.
