About the Author

Catherine Wilkins, author of My Best Friend and Other Enemies, is a writer and comedian. She grew up in Hertfordshire and now lives in London. She writes jokes and stories which she performs around the country to strangers in the dark, trying to make them laugh. Catherine has always wanted to write funny stories for children and is finding the whole process more exciting than that time she bungee jumped. Which is pretty exciting. If you think about it.

Jessica’s best friend Natalie has gone off with fashionable but hateful new girl Amelia. Jessica does her best to deal with this horrendous turn of events but finds it increasingly difficult, not least because the terrible two are in her form at school and also because they flaunt their new friendship in ever more public but exclusive ways.
One such outrage is their formation of a gang, CAC, whose unfortunate name does little to wean Jess off her obsession with her ex-best friend (or is she?) and the vile interloper who looks at Jess as if she is ‘a carpet stain’. The book is full of splendid images like that and narrated by Jess in the convincing voice of a girl who is as much on the border between youth and young adulthood as she is on the fence about liking and disliking the treacherous Natalie.
Jess decides to start her own gang (ACE!) and recruits friends from the chess club who, hilariously, are invariably at some other club or wholesome activity when Jess wants to get them all together to do… Well, one of the problems faced by Jess is what you actually do when you’ve got a gang. She ends up trying to copy Natalie and Amelia but it all goes predictably wrong.
Fortunately, Jess has tough girl Tanya Harris as ACE’s ‘gang enforcer’ (Tanya’s idea), although this advantage proves to be ambiguous, not least when Tanya photocopies Jess’s cartoon depicting their school as hell and gives copies to everyone. CAC counter by making their own badges - one of them has a badge maker - and Jess’s pleas to her mother to buy one fall on deaf ears as the family is on an ‘economy drive’ and thus forced to eat all the boring stuff in the freezer before any more decent grub is purchased.

A fantastic book. I bought this for my daughter and she finished it in one weekend- a record for her. I really hope there is a sequel coming out soon! Can't recommend it enough.
