Gemma and Alice were born on the same day, at the same time, in the same hospital, and have been best friends ever since. Despite their very different personalities, they have never let anything get in the way of their friendship. Until now that is. When Gemma discovers that Alice is moving away, she is of course devastated, and both girls are left wondering whether they can still remain friends over such a long distance. Gemma is particularly mortified at the idea that Alice might find a new best friend.
Over the course of the story, read here by Susannah Harker and available to purchase as a CD audiobook or as an MP3 audiobook, the two girls have to learn to adapt to their new lives without each other whilst hopefully remaining friends. Can their friendship withstand the test?
