Our opinion is that "Best Friends" is an excellent book! We like the way the author writes and describes things because it gives you a picture in your mind of what is going on in the story. Our favorite part was when Gemma meets Flora for the first time because Gemma does some funny things to her that makes us laugh. Biscuits is a great character in the story. We found Biscuits interesting because he changes throughout the book, but he is always jolly and happy. Biscuits is Gemma's friend who she meets at school. This book reminds us of us, because we are best friends just like the girls in the story. We learned that you can always make a new friend.
We recommend "Best Friends" to third through fifth grades because it has two hundred and twenty four pages of a great story. It has small pictures on each page which will hold the interest of the age group.
