In this first instalment of Chocolate Box Girls, our narrator is shy but imaginative Cherry, whose tendency to confuse fact and fantasy gets her into trouble on a regular basis. Half Scottish and half Japanese, she's never felt that she fit in anywhere - except with her dad at home. And she soon realises that moving in with the Tanberrys isn't going to be all plain sailing. Her journey is mirrored endearingly by that of her beloved golfish Rover, as they both adjust to the pros and cons of being a little fish in a big pond for a change.
Cherry Crush also introduces us to all four Tanberry girls, but we get to know oldest sister Honey the best. While her hostility towards Cherry means she's in some ways the villain of the story, we gradually realise that she hasn't had such an easy time of it herself. The other sisters - dedicated ballerina Summer, her quirky twin Skye, and tomboy Coco - are torn between their loyalty to Honey and welcoming Cherry to the family. They're all so individual and easy-to-relate-to that I'm sure readers won't be able to resist choosing a favourite. The book even includes a 'Which Chocolate Box Girl Are You?' quiz in case you have any trouble deciding.Read more ›
It did NOT dissappoint!
Cherry Costello moves to Somerset with her dad Paddy (her Japanese mum died when Cherry was 4 years old). They live with Charlotte, an old friend of Paddy's from art college, and her 4 daughters; Coco, Skye, Summer and Honey. Paddy and Charlotte are madly in love, which doesn't please Honey in the slightest. Cherry gets along well with Coco, Skye and Summer, but Honey is insistent that she doesn't need another sister. Then Cherry sets eyes on the gorgeous Shay Fletcher, but when she realises that Shay is Honey's boyfriend, things are so very different.
Cherry tries hard to resist Shay, but with his floppy golden hair, black beanie hat and blue guitar, it seems almost impossible. Depending on Teen mags for advice, Cherry needs to steer right clear of Shay........ Will Honey still love Shay even though he has his sea-green eyes set on Cherry Costello?
It is a brilliant book, definitely my new favourite of Cathy Cassidy's! I recommend to any girl aged between 10 and 16 :)
Amelia, age 10
This book is kind of based on new step-families and sisterly (in some cases step/half sisterly) love and hate. Cherry has every reason to feel cautious of Honey!
