Will Daizy realize that even when she's sinking, her friends and family are there to help her swim?

    This is a really good book, as good as all of Cathy's other books, even though it features a younger character, It's quite good, despite the cheesy title.

    This is an amazing book. It's funny and smart and indulging. Even at the age of 15, when I am sad after reading dark books, I find warmth, love and innocence in this book.

    The book Shine on daisy star is a really good. It explains how life turns out to be when you start telling lies just because you think that its embarrassing. The end does turn out to be great when Daizy can finally swim properly.

    The book shine on Daisy Star was my first read of a Cathy Cassidy book.
    Well done Cathy , before I read this book I hated reading you have changed my mind.
    The book made me feel as if I was Daisy tangled up in a lot of secrets and lies.
    I managed to read the book in 4-5 days reading as much as possible every night.
    I have got the book Marshmallow Skye and just cannot wait to read it.
    Your BEST Fan

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,
