I lati positivi di essere gemelle? Tutti. I lati negativi di essere gemelle? Nessuno. Così risponde Ruby, la gemella dominante. "Lei è la più grande, la più brillante, la migliore, lei è la stella. È un peccato che sia frenata da me", così pensa di lei la timida, sottomessa, sensibile gemella Gran. I diari delle due gemelle scorrono paralleli, in un primo tempo con la voce di Ruby che emerge, vitale, sbruffona, irresistibile, poi con quella di Gran che un po' alla volta si fa spazio, si approfondisce, si impone. È splendido essere simili e unite, doloroso differenziarsi, è una vittoria essere se stessi. Età di lettura: da 9 anni.

My phone started updating just as I was proofreading my review, which promptly disappeared, so this is my second go, and it's going to be brief now since I want to go to sleep! I watched the TV movie version of Double Act last night and really enjoyed it, so today I decided to reread the book. Even
A lot of people loved Double Act by Jacqueline Wilson. Regarded by many as being one of her better written titles, it's still popular nearly twenty years after it was first published. In fact, I've seen a lot of people lately clamouring for a sequel. "What,' they ask, "happened to the twins afterward Leggi tutto
Oh, what I will read in the chase for that elusive and dubious honour of having read all the BBC's Big Read books. (I have 13 more to go!) 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 hav Leggi tutto
Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge , based on the BBC's Big Read Poll of 2003. Better than her other tripe but still a bit naff. Full review to follow. Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | Shop | Etsy
This is a fantastic book. It is about twins named Ruby and Garnet, Ruby is quite bossy and confident while her sister Garnet is quiet and shy. 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. One day their father me Leggi tutto
I love Jacqueline Wilson books because they don't shy away from real life. She gets deals with real things many kids go through on a daily basis, in an easy to understand way and accessible way. This book is about identity. How to be yourself when you are considered by all (even yourself) to be inex Leggi tutto
This was cute, but didn't blow me away!
I got this book as a Christmas present from my mother. It was kind of a joke because I have a twin sister and my mother knows I like to read a lot. 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. *SPOILER ALERT* This book was exactl Leggi tutto
It was a lovely story about two twin sisters and their little adventures together. Close to the end of the book the story took a big turn that was very sudden but it was very satisfying. I would definitely recommend reading this book. It's short and fun with a sweet message delivered to the reader.
I really enjoyed this book when I was going through my Jackie Wilson phase. I think I perhaps read it four or five times throughout my childhood and early teenage years. I also recall listening to the fantastic audio book on tape! Ruby and Garnet are identical twins, but couldn't be more different.
