So then fate throws her another chance, and her Guardian newspaper has an advertisement for identical twin girls to audition for a TV show. She also realises, alternately, that being together would have helped Garnet feel better about leaving. After undertaking a tour and doing various tests its found that ruby did not get the scolarship but it was infact garnet that did. Both Ruby and Garnet annoyed me in a way because some of their character traits were a bit too strong. Double Act was "Highly Commended" runner up for the annual Carnegie Medal from the British Library Association, recognising the year's best children's book by a British subject.

The twins' mother died when they were only 7 years old (3 years ago) so they miss having a mother to go to when they are feeling sad. The twins send a letter to A headteacher from a boarding school however only one of them gets to go. Double Act is about 2 twins and there mum died when they where little and they live with their dad and Nan.

If not for that, I probably never would have discovered Jacqueline Wilson - I missed these books when I was young, and they're not the sort of things I would have otherwise stumbled upon as an adult. Ruby and Garnet are ten-year-old identical twins living with their father and grandmother since their mother, Opal, died. It's a short book and quick to read, so it was the first of the books I got this Christmas, that I decided to read.

After making friends with someone she previously considered rather a bully, Ruby starts to realize that she and Garnet don't need to be the same, and don't have to do the same things, to be happy. Ruby and Garnet end up moving with Rose and their father which neither of the twins is happy about, but everything around them is changing maybe it would be better if they stopped being such a double act. After you've finished reading that sentence a few times (and no, you're not seeing things,) allow me to explain. In 2007 Jacky Daydream was published, an inspirational true story of how a shy schoolgirl became a superstar author.Wilson is an expert at creating realistic characters and is probably the closest thing you can get to actual being inside a child's mind yourself.
