About this deal

Despite their different characters; Ruby is social and Garnet accepts her sister as leader, they are agree on everything. The twins' mother died when they were only 7 years old (3 years ago) so they miss having a mother to go to when they are feeling sad. Throughout the entire book it's clear that Richard is going through a sort-of early-onset mid-life crisis. Wilson is great at making realistic characters that you can quickly come to term with, giving realistic reactions to events.

This time Ruby does all the talking because she thinks that garnet will screw things up but when they get a letter from the headmistress they come to know that Garnet is selected for her writing skills which portrayed maturity.Clare's, and is keen for the two of them to go ahead and audition, even though Garnet declines and their father doesn't agree. Whilst the the two were young their mother died which resulted in them and their dad moving in with their gran. Although Garnet isn't keen on the idea, she is about to deliver a good audition but the twins father appears just as she is about to begin, making her feel terrible for messing up the audition. They sit the entrance exam, but Ruby is disgusted by Garnet's descripted and mature writing but remains confident they will both pass.

Actually, speaking as an adult, it's much easier to see what a complete and utter piece of shit the father is, too. What I didn’t like about this book: I felt that there was maybe too many issues being addressed in this book: the death of their mother at a young age, leaving their grandmother, their friends and school to move somewhere new and their Dad meeting someone new and moving in with her. Then another opportunity comes when they send a letter to the headmistress of Marnock Heights, a boarding school.

Double Act is about 2 twins and there mum died when they where little and they live with their dad and Nan. As Rose, a women their dad loves comes into their life, three years after their mother's death, they find it hard to digest. They play pranks on Rose and in the end decide to go for an audition for acting because Ruby wants to be an actress in the future but Garnet doesn't want to be.
