Format: Paperback
when my mummy bought me this book i thought "awww a big long boring book !!" but as i read the first page i couldnt stop then i found myself at chapter 8 and then my mummy took it of me and said "no more reading it will hurt your eyes!"

i told her it reminded me about my best friend orfhlaith and me, and it did because i have brown hair and she has blond hair and im loud and messy and orfhlaith is quiet and neat!

i loved this book and i never want to get rid of it because i love it :)

and i have read it 3 times and i can now finish it within a day!!

i really would like you to read this and see what it is like
I LOVE THE BOOK 'BEST FRIENDS'

My son looked at me with disgust when I suggested that he read a Jacqueline Wilson book. 'Those are for girls...' he sneered. 'Well, just you have an open mind and give it a go. I mean, just how many decent srory books have you exactly found to read lately?'
Well, he shuffled about uneasily and conceded that there really wasn't much of interest left in his school library to read and so begrudgingly, he took the book away.
A few days later, it's all smiles and 'Jacqueline Wilson this...and Jacqueline Wilson that' and 'please can you get hold of some more of these types of books PLEASE!'
So this is a great starting point for a very competent 7 yr old, but perhaps more for an 8 or 9 year old. The children in the stories are still at junior school, so that's a good guide as to thw suitability of the starting age range. There's no upper limit - it's a great read for grown-ups too! The only reason why we decided not to give it 5 stars is that she (Jacqueline Wilson) has not got many starring roles for boys in any of her novels!

The book best friends is a very good book by Jacqueline Wilson. It's not the type of book I would like because I normally read books like Enid Blyton's the twins at st. Claire's and Mallory towers, I decided to try a Jacqueline Wilson book and when I finished it I thought it was good. I bought another one and when I finished that one I thought it was very good. After that my mam bought me the book best friends. At first I thought it wouldn't be good and I thought it would be a bit babyish. All the same, I decided to start reading it. It was about two girls, Gemma and Alice were best friends and they lived next door to each other. Then Alice had to move to Scotland and her mother didn't want her to have anything to do with Gemma anymore. The only way they could keep in touch was to use e-mails because Alice's new friend Flora, had let Alice use her computer. But Gemma isn't sure that she and Alice can stay best friends forever.......

Best Friends
By Jacqueline Wilson
This is a story about two girls called Alice and Gemma who are best friends. They had known each other since they were babies, but when they grew older they were split apart. Alice is a neat and tidy girl, but Gemma is the total opposite. Yes, yes you know what that means she is a total dirt bag and don't ask me why they're friends because I have no idea! The moral is that even if you don't see each other everyday and your friends have moved away you can still keep in touch. In our opinion. It is definitely the best Jacqueline Wilson book out of all of them; it is a well worth reading. Even
though the pages are long they are still packed with interesting things for every reader to enjoy. From sad moments to surprising things it is most definitely well worth the read. This book is suitable for ages 7 and up.

like the title says brilliant book. It is about best friends. they are two girls named gemma and alice they stick together like glue. They were born on the same day and have seen each other every day since. they share every thing but then gemma finds out there is something alice isn't sharing it is a secret and when gemma finds out what it is she is certain that they will no longer stay best friends for ever.

alice is moving to scotland. she is starting a new life with a new school a massive garden and.... a new best friend that goes by the name of flora. alice and gemma can still write to each other but alice has to email via floras computer. finally gemmas kind loving grandad drives her all the way up tp scotland to see alice again bbut flora is there and is horrible to gemma. gemma cant stand it and does somthing very naugty. lets just say it involvs floras face and a very creamy chocolate cake.

absolutely brilliant!
