Summary

Ruby and Garnet are ten-year-old twins. They're identical, and they do everything together, especially since their mother died three years earlier – but they couldn't be more different.

Bossy, bouncy, funny Ruby loves to take charge, and is desperate to be a famous actress, while quiet, sensitive, academic Garnet loves nothing more than to curl up with one of her favourite books. And when everything around the twins is changing so much, can being a double act work for ever?

long and boring story

felt like we were constantly waiting for something gripping to happen, very slow read. myself and 10yo daughter have read many Jacqueline Wilson books but this was our least favourite

    5 out of 5 stars

Great 👍

I lov.e it so much is so funny and their are load of unexpected things happen you find out lots of thing about twins and try thing that may or may not go wrong and it sounds like their in the room talking instead of them just in a book

Is a funny, memorable book for all ages7 to 13

It was an amazing book, especially as I am a big jaquiline Wilson fan and her books always inspire me to write more. I would highly recommended this book to anyone who loves a laugh and an interesting story line.
