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?

  • Abby, age 11

    This is an amazing book! I've probably read it about 10 times lol. But Shannon is the most annoying person ever. How could Ginger stand her?

  • Brendon, age 14

    I really liked how real and fun it was

  • Maddy, age 11

    This book is probably one of the most amazing ones I've read by Cathy Cassidy. It is all about the friendship of Ginger and Shannon, and about how Ginger stands up to her best friend. Shannon is used to being the in charge one, but when her best friend is losing things to Shannon, Ginger starts to speak for herself.

    I think I may secretly be Ginger minus the ginger hair.

    I've recently reread Gingersnaps (for god knows how many times already), and I can say that this is my favourite go to book, no matter the age. Whenever I'm upset with friends or boys, I would always come back to it, flipping through the pages and seeing Ginger evolve from the shy, passive girl to a wonderful friend. Thank you, Cathy Cassidy, for sharing such a lovely book into the world!

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