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.
Skye is an identical twin and is really searching out who she is apart from her sister. She hears a spooky ghost story on Halloween night and then her mother find a trunk full of old things belonging to the girl in the ghost story. Spooked yet?! Skye starts having dreams and everything goes out of control.
I love the Tanberry Bed and Breakfast and I love love love that old Gypsy Caravan! I want one! Now! Not to mention all of Paddy's homemade chocolates. I could actually smell marshmallow in the air. Taste that sweet stick fluffy treat on my tongue. The descriptions are great. I need s'mores. Now.
This series has much more to tell. There are 3 more sisters stories, and I wish I had the books now! This will make a perfect book for a niece or daughter just around this Halloween season! I loved it!
"I don't believe in ghosts," Summer says firmly. " I'm not crazy! But, I'm telling you, there is something weird about all this stuff. It makes me uneasy."
Skye Tanberry feels like she's constantly living in her identical twin's shadow. Skye loves Summer more than anything... But she's tired of feeling second best, like a mirror girl. So when Skye finds a trunk full of beautiful old clothes, belonging to a long-dead relative, she sees an opportunity to be different. Only, when she tries the dresses on, she has dreams. Dreams that feel real. Dreams in which she doesn't feel herself... Dreams in which she is Clara Travers, her dead relative, dead by suicide.... And then she finds herself falling in love with an equally long-dead gypsy boy - a boy who probably is just a figment of her imagination... But is he? After all, Clara did love a young gypsy boy...
Marshmallow Skye was a beautiful, heart-warming, chocolate-filled story about finding yourself - with a scrummy side of an impossible romance, a tragic death, finding freedom - whether from a cage or your family - and a wonderful supernatural twist. And I was lift feeling all warm and squidgy inside - much like the namesake sweeties, marshmallows. I loved this book. I'm now desperate for Cherry Crush and Book Three. Whoever's story it may be, I know - I know - it will be fantastic. Fingers crossed for Honey, by-the-way. Plus... Too Cute!
Skye Tanberry was wonderful, rather mature and really sweet. I just instantly fell in love with her voice, her kindness, how devoted she was to her twin. She was addicted to history, something I loved - plus her fashion sense was awesome: history inspired! She was kind of a realist, but she was so supportive and caring. But poor Skye felt like she was living in Summer's shadow, like she was second best and always would be. How wonderful she thought her twin was just ate away her confidence.Read more ›
