5.0 out of 5 stars Marshmallow Skye is such a sweet read., 22 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Chocolate Box Girls: Marshmallow Skye (Hardcover)
So, I have stepped away from the vamps and the werewolves, the Shadowhunters (or demon hunters for those of you who aren't familiar with Cassandra Clare's work), the demons, and faeries, to delve into a more, true to life story but, before I could even get as far as opening the book, I couldn't help gushing and drooling over the cover. It's gorgeous! It's sweet and cute and was really making me crave chocolates. It's so yummy looking!

The story was so beautifully written. It is aimed at a younger age group (9+) but it's written in such a way that an older person -like myself- wouldn't feel out-of-place reading it. I admit, I was a bit unsure about reading it at first because of the fact it was aimed at younger readers but I'm so glad I did. I could happily go back to the beginning and start all over again. There is such a fab twist to the story. I really wasn't expecting it. I just kind of expected it to be about growing up and finding yourself etc but it isn't quite. There is a lot more to the story than you may think when reading the blurb. Yes, it's about a girl who feels she's always in her twin's shadow and it's about becoming a teen and discovering boys and make-up and the usual teen-coming-of-age stuff but there is also a much deeper, spookier side to the story and I loved how the story unfolded and how there could be more to Skye's dreams of "Ghost Boy" than you may think.

I think girls who read this book will be sure to empathise with Skye and her friends and all the things they are going through when it comes to turning the big ONE THREE. It also teaches them that it is perfectly ok to go against the grain, to be their own person and not to follow others if that's not what makes them happy.
