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 grandad, can do to help?

I love this book because it shows that you don't have to be the same as your friend, you can just be who you are!

This book is amazing because the story is very similar to what happened when my best friend left. This book shows you don't have to like the same things to be best friends.

Gemma is a rough but loving girl with a big heart. She's very close with every member of her family and has many friends. But she also has a huge dilemma. Her best friend is leaving to go to Scotland, forever. They have been together from birth and Gemma feels powerless to stop this unwelcome change from ending their friendship. But she won't let it go without a fight or two!
Alice is a kind and gentle girl. She treats everyone nicely and keeps a diary of all her private thoughts. She frequently draws, even doodling on her letters and diary entries and dressing properly is very important to her. In many ways, she’s the exact opposite of her best friend Gemma, whom she cares for very deeply.
Biscuits seems to be an odd boy but it's only because he's very, very intelligent. He has a keen, penetrating eye and often sees what people are feeling even when they are trying to hide it. He comforts Gemma when she's feeling down and even tries to help her when she runs amuck. He's really quite mature!
