Product Description

Review

All the teenage humours of romance, jealousy, friendship and sorrow rage freely in this brilliantly observed story of contemporary life. (Julia Eccleshare Lovereading4kids.co.uk)

I can hardly wait to read Cherry Crush, it could possibly be my favourite Cathy Cassidy book! (Beata, age 11)

The Chocolate Box Girls is a sumptuous series starring sassy sisters, super-cool boys and one of Cathy's biggest loves - chocolate.

Format: Hardcover
When loner Cherry Costelloe's dad falls in love with Charlotte Tanberry - who already has four daughters of her own - the couple decide to move in together and start a family business making exquisite handmade chocolates. While Cherry soon finds a connection with three of her new sisters, the eldest - the beautiful but not-so-sweet Honey - makes it clear she doesn't want anything to do with the Scottish newcomers. And Cherry's crush on the swoonworthy Shay Fletcher doesn't help matters, especially since he's her new arch-enemy's boyfriend. Cue major dramas...

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.

I got this delivered in the post yesterday morning and had read it by lunchtime! After reading most of Cathy Cassidy's other books, including Sundae Girl, Driftwood, Lucky Star, Indigo Blue, Dizzy, Gingersnaps and Angel Cake, I was very eager to read this one!

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 :)

This book is the best book I have got from amazon kindle. It is a classic show on the dramas of teenage life, not fitting in and trying to maker friends. I would red commented to 9-12 year old readers that love a dilemma in the storyline. I have read it over and over again and find snippets of extra information and detail that I either forgot about or didn't think about at first. I find it very easy to understand and almost become Cherry and almost share emotions as she gets late night knocks on the door from,Shay, Honey(her new stepsister's) boyfriend and the new chocolate business that Paddy andCharlotte have grand ideas for..

I absolutely love love LOVED this book!!! I read the first chapter and was like...WOW! It's definitely one of Cathy's best books. It is about a girl called Cherry who lives with her dad, and moves to her dad's girlfriends house. She's going to live with 4 new sisters, but things slowly change as Cherry and oldest sister Honey aren't the best of friends.....I couldn't put this book down, adored the story idea and recommend it if you want a good read!

I feel really sorry for Cherry and when I read this and then I read Sweet Honey I thought it was extremely mean of Honey to blame Cherry for stealing Shay when Cherry told him to go away and Shay keeps coming back. And Honey cuts off her waist length hair!

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!
