There are only two choices left to Rose: frame Ruby for murder and have her locked away in Borstal, or just up and kill her. Then her dad suddenly announced that they where moving to the country with ROSE, and that there Nan is going to be put in a home.

The cover of the book is brightly coloured which made me pick it up as I thought it looked a fun book to read. Leaving Gran behind, having a new stepmother,moving in with her and of course Garnet going to a new private school! In my opinion this is a portrait of modern families narrating the positive and negative stages of two teenagers.I get the point, though, because as the story progresses both girls seem to grow up and accept themselves as they are. How to be yourself when you are considered by all (even yourself) to be inextricably part of a pair. This book again showcases Jacqueline Wilson’s talent for writing children’s books that address serious subject matter in a way that a child would connect with.

Wilson is great at making realistic characters that you can quickly come to term with, giving realistic reactions to events. I would strongly recommend this book to any one who has a twin because it’s kind of a story of how you can still be twins even though your twin is somewhere else.Whilst the the two were young their mother died which resulted in them and their dad moving in with their gran. I imagine it is something that to an 11 year old probably feels like one of the biggest things that has happened to them and this book covered that subject in a realistic way. Jacqueline Wilson's hugely popular book, DOUBLE ACT, told the story of identical twins Ruby and Garnet - fun, sparky, extremely close but incredibly different. Suitable for use by casts with as few as 6 or as many as 30 members, and offering staging opportunities from the simplest to the most sophisticated designs, this script will be eagerly seized upon by English and Drama teachers, youth workers, theatre groups, or even families who'd like to try putting on their own performance at home - and many others.

I have lost track of how many times I have read it but I still continue to because it's a Jacqueline Wilson book and you can read her books over and over again!They sit the entrance exam, but Ruby is disgusted by Garnet's descripted and mature writing but remains confident they will both pass.

Her insightful and emotionally challenging books not only stretch reading ability, but give young readers a glimpse into many kinds of lives. It is about twins named Ruby and Garnet, Ruby is quite bossy and confident while her sister Garnet is quiet and shy. After undertaking a tour and doing various tests its found that ruby did not get the scolarship but it was infact garnet that did. It was published in 1995, co-illustrated by Sue Heap and Nick Sharratt, and it won both the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize (ages 9–11 years and overall) and the Red House Children's Book Award. The book takes the form of the twins alternately narrating the story of their life in an accounts book.

Then another opportunity comes when they send a letter to the headmistress of Marnock Heights, a boarding school. Near summer, Ruby, realising that the school where the TV movie is being filmed at is a prestigious boarding school for girls, Marnock Heights, decides that the pair ought to sign up for scholarships—of which there is only one. And gradually, they find that being the same isn’t the same anymore… This moving, skilfully-told story of family and identity vividly shows the struggles that children, and twins in particular, can face in embracing their own individuality and potential for change.
