REVIEW - Double Act by Jacqueline Wilson

The Book
Release Date: 5 October 2006

No. 80 - The BIG Read

No one can ever be like a mother to us, especially not stupid frizzy dizzy Rose! Ruby and Garnet are 10-year-old identical twins. They do everything together, especially since their mom died three years ago. Can being a double act work forever? Especially when their father starts dating again?

My Opinion  4 STARS
This is my favourite book so far that I have read from Jacqueline Wilson.  This was kind of like a mix of St Trinian's and The Parent Trap.

Two twins who do everything together, say things together and have their own language and gestures that only they can interpret.  Ruby is the older twin and the one in charge of what they do.  Garnet is the shy twin who practically does whatever Ruby wants and is the smarter of the two.

But with a shake up in the family when their widowed dad tells them that they are moving to the country with his girlfriend everything changes.

They both start to see the differences in the other more especially when they don't get the part in acting that Ruby wanted and then Garnet gets a scholarship to boarding school.

Its quite a sweet story really and I did find it really funny at times.
