Then Ruby spots an ad in the paper - ‘twins needed for TV serial’. It seems like the chance of a lifetime, but there’s one snag: Garnet hates the idea. Can being a double act work for ever?
Eve Karpf reads this funny and touching story about twin sisters who discover that their differences are just as important as the bond between them.
Jacqueline Wilson once again demonstrates her brilliant literary skill to craft a tale that’s big on laughs, but at times is also thoroughly moving and thought provoking. In this story of a pair of twins who find that their differences risk breaking the previously strong bond that they had with each other, Wilson addresses some of the real issues that young people today face in her uniquely endearing way.
Ruby and Garnet may be identical, but their personalities are markedly different. Ruby is loud and extroverted while Garnet is content to bury her nose in her books and let her sister do all the talking. When their dad finds a new girlfriend after the death of the twins’ mother, everything starts to change - much to the girls’ dismay. The stress of having to start a new life elsewhere begins to take its toll on their previously strong relationship and they end up growing further and further apart. Will they ever be able to rediscover what kept them so close? Or have they changed forever?
This delightful story read by Eve Karpf will captivate and charm whilst providing some moments of real poignancy, and is available to purchase either as a CD audiobook or a downloadable MP3.
