Summary

Gemma and Alice were born on the same day and 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 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 Grand-dad, can do to help?

Sad but good 🥲

This is an emotional but heartwarming story. Some narrators ruin stories but Susannah Harker narrates this story beautifully. Really recommend. 6-11 years as some young children may find it sad. Definitely buy.

Nice, I liked the story setting and idea.

I was a bit unsatisfied with the ending.It was also a bit hard to keep my place, as the few chapters there were are very short.
Overall...
its a good book and I honestly was surprised how quickly I go finished it, it's like how they say time flys when your having fun?
