Sweet Honey

HONEY. Ringletty blonde hair, creamy skin, artistic, moody, charming . . .

Honey is going to live with her dad in Australia. Determined to make a fresh start, she couldn't be further away from the tough times at Tanglewood.

Her new life is a dream come true - until school begins. The girls are different from Honey's friends in England and the only person who seems to understand her is the cute boy from the beach she's chatting to online. But when he, the girls at school and even her dad start breaking promises, who can she trust?

All alone on the other side of the world, Honey's past is about to catch up with her . . .

    I love this book and I enjoyed it a lot. But, it was kind of sad and it made me feel like I was actually honey herself. It was great and interesting anyway. This was my first book of your and I think I finally found the author I like other than Jacqueline Wilson.

  • Simrin, age 11

    This book is an amazing book with lots of drama and love. While I was reading the look it felt as if I was Honey because of the amount of description Cathy Cassidy has added into this book

    I love the books from Cathy Cassidy, I always have since I was a little girl. Cathy is such a great author and she writes amazing books! I literally could not stop reading Sweet Honey because I was enjoying it so much! And I felt like I could relate to Honey and the story. Although did anyone else feel a bit scared or frightened when Honey got cyber bullied and she got all those threatening texts? Cause I did and I'm not sure what to do because I keep thinking about it.

    Hi Cathy! I started reading your nooks when I was 11 and I am 16 now and I still love your writing. Sweet Honey is probably my favourite as I find it very relatable. Keep writing ♡

  • Katharine, age 12

    Wow... this book is one to remember - the sweet first impression masks a complex plot with darker undertones. Honey is an intricate character and the world of Tanglewood is dreamlike yet with realistic and relatable characters. I'm off - to hunt down the next instalment 'Fortune Cookie'. Thank you Cathy!!!!!

    Looking through the comments I am probably a bit too old to be reading this book but who can blame me it's an amazing, accomplished and breathtaking book! Sweet Honey is packed full of exciting yet shivering events. From emotional, characteristic, heartwarming, romantical and realistic scenarios to blood curdling, depressing points in time which make you gulp fearing the worst, dreading to turn over the page. Yet still, from very early chapters I spotted clever writing techniques and patterns too. Cathy's writing has a real habit for drawing the reader in and making them want to read about honey and all of her sisters lives continuously even when the book has ended. Sweet Honey was absolutely brilliant and I can't wait to read the rest of the chocolate box series!

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,
