Meet the one and only Daizy Star!

She's quirky and cool and loving life in Year Six with her best friends Willow and Beth. But when Dad hatches a mad plan that will turn life upside-down, Daizy is too horrified to tell anyone at all . . . and pretty soon she finds herself tangled up in a knot of secrets and lies. Will Daizy realize that even when she's sinking, her friends and family are there to help her swim?

    Dear Cathy,
    Can you do a reading comprehension for your books?
    Can you give us questions about your books?
    Can you send us free worksheets to dowload and print and do?
    I really need them to improve my English skills. Especially with the exams coming up (in two days)..................................

    Shine on Daizy Star is one of my favorite book, it is inspiring and helps girls out there who are around the age of Daizy who have dreams and are frightened of something out there. I highly recommend this book as i myself a book worm say that this book is inspiring to those in need of a really good book.

  • Bexxy, age 10

    i read this book in 2 days and i couldn't put it down. Best cathy cassidy bok ever!

  • Ronnie, age 12

    well it was a good and intresting book to read. what i really liked was that when she put the socks in here swiming costume and it fell out that made me laugh till i cryed. when i first got the book i read it then suddenly i was like trapped in the book, i swear if i got the book early in the morning like 8:oo i would have finished at like 10:oo. i didn't like beth and willow because when daizy didn't invite them over her house they didn't be daizy's friend but what if daizy had problems like really bigg problems at home like she wet her bed would they like that noooo. daizy big sister her being a goth was kind of scary. i wonder you at the end of the story and the dad has another plan i wander what it was!
