Bittersweet

Shay is back in this special short story!

Shay, the boy with the cool blond fringe and the blue guitar, the boy who smells of darkness and the ocean, is Cherry’s boyfriend. But it wasn’t always this way. Once, he was in love with Honey, Cherry’s oldest step-sister. Since their break-up, bitterness has twisted every word she’s said to him.

Now Honey needs his help. Should Shay reach out to her – or is it safer to steer clear?

Dip into the delicious world of the Chocolate Box Girls, as for the first ever time Shay gets the chance to tell his own story. And don’t miss the rest of the Chocolate Box Girls series: Cherry Crush, Marshmallow Skye and Summer’s Dream.

    AMAZING book! Shay reminds me of New Zealand artist Jamie Mcdell, really beachy songs. Awesome, you inspire me so much Cathy! Thanks for all your effort!

    This is such a cool book, Cathy! All your books are fantastic! I like the idea of having a boy in the Chocolate Box Series. Don't give up writing!

    I think you should do anther series of "The Chocolate Box Boys"
    Like Alfie, Shay, Cherry's Dad, Aaron...
    Maybe you could do a book about Greg Tanberry coming back?
    Love your books!
    Can't wait for the others to come out!
    Hope you cosider my thoughts and comment!
    Thank you,

  • Anonymous commenter

    I really confused about this is cocoa Caramel before or after bittersweet in the series??????????

  • Eliana, age 10 nearly 11

    I have just read Bittersweet and I loved it. I thought it was so beautiful. But in Coco Caramel does Shay's story get relived. Except in Coco's point of view? I can't wait till it is released!

    I love all your books! I started reading your books when I was at the library and there was none of the books I normally read so I picked out Cherry Crush and I'm only too glad it was the first book of the choclate box girls or it wouldn't of made sense, I haven't yet read Coco Caremel or Bittersweet but I can't wait to!!!!!!!!!

Hello planet!

Coco here! I’m afraid on top of ALL of the worlds other problems (global warming, saving the pandas…

I could go on!) we’ve also been having a few problems with spam comments – it’s probably just my mental sisters messing about…

But ANYWAY, to post your comment, simply put my first name (Coco) in the box below!

Lots of love,

Coco
