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.
