Is Ginger's best friend really her biggest rival?

'You can make a wish come true, if you're determined . . .'

Gone are the days when Ginger was an outsider, always on the fringes of friendship. She's swapped puppy fat and pigtails for make-up and hair straighteners and never looked back - until now. Ginger and Shannon are best mates, but when they befriend lonely Emily, everything changes. Even the saxophone-playing boy in the trilby hat can't help - he's part of the problem. Are Ginger and Shannon drifting apart or can they stay best friends forever?

    Ahh- where to start? I absolutely loved this book. I was awfully worried about school and stuff and about not being cool and this book gave me all the answers :D! I love Ginger and I can relate to her A LOT but I think Sam Taylor is the most wonderful and weirdest guy in town. Couldn't put this book down and made Gingersnap cookies straight afterwards!! Thanks Cathy! xoxo

    Dear Cathy Cassidy I love your book [Ginger Snaps]. I don't like to read, but your book inspired me to read more. I like all the characters in the book, especially Ginger, Sam and Emily. I felt bad for Mr.Hunter though. One of my favorite parts of the story is the part were Ginger saw the fox. I haven't read any other of your books, but I will make sure that I do. xoxo

    I love this book! It's soooo good, I highly recommend it to any girl age 9-14.

    I loved this book! I know exactly how Ginger feels. I had a friend who let me down horribly, then acted like I was to blame. But Shannon? She's crazy! When girls ditch others because of who they love or,well, for ANY reason, they get bad end of the deal. They just lost an awesome friend! And even though I think Shannon gets a bit crazy in this book, I still absolutely love it!!!!

    I LOVED this book! Ginger and Emily are my favourite characters, but Shannon is so vain!
    I liked the part when they all made the magazine, and it seemed really fun! I may make a mag with my friends. :)
