Ruby and Garnet are ten-year-old twins. They're identical, and they do EVERYTHING together, especially since their mother died three years earlier - but they couldn't be more different. Bossy, bouncy, funny Ruby loves to take charge, and is desperate to be a famous actress, while quiet, sensitive, academic Garnet loves nothing more than to curl up with one of her favourite books. And when everything around the twins is changing so much, can being a double act work for ever?


"Wilson's comic exploration of the twin-world shows the desire to separate fighting a powerful genetic magnetism. In a clever touch, each narrator is given a different illustrator" Independent on Sunday "A book of the highest quality. It will be very, very popular too. Hurrah!" Mail on Sunday "Hilarious tale which contains dark notes that ring very true" The Times "An exuberant story ... The ingenious split narrative, inventive page design and lots of incidental pictures make this book irresistible" Guardian "Jacqueline Wilson has a rare gift for writing lightly and amusingly about emotional issues Bookseller" Bookseller
