Cherry Crush

CHERRY. Dark almond eyes, skin the colour of milky coffee, wild imagination, feisty, fun . . .

Cherry Costello's life is about to change forever. She and Dad are moving to Somerset where a new mum and a bunch of brand-new sisters await.
And on Cherry's first day there her head is turned by the gorgeous Shay Fletcher.
But Shay already has a girlfriend, Cherry's new stepsister, Honey. Cherry knows her friendship with Shay is dangerous - it could destroy everything. But that doesn't mean she's going to stay away from him . . .

  • Millie, age 11

    Fantastic! I got my copy two days early and I started reading it straight away!
    I took the quiz at the back of the book and I found out I am most like Skye.
    Cherry sounds really cool, and it felt like I was actually in the story.
    Keep writing Cathy.

    Yes, im reading it.! Got the book as soon as it came out.. and it is BRILLIANT! I am now on chapter 10 and this is the first day of reading it. :DD Its the type of book which you can read it again and again. And I really recommend you to read it. And the cover is really pretty. lol but anyway go and buy it, and you will not regret it. :)

  • Lucy, age 12

    Cherry Crush is a great book in which it makes you feel like you know the character personally. I love the character of cherry because she is like me: she has a vivid imagination! Shay is a mysterious character with a great heart but an appetite for trouble and rebellion. All the characters have a different personality but you get to now them all. The story line is full of guilt, mysteries, chocolate and most of all friendships! I reccomend this to alll girls and boys of ages over 9-16 (my 16 year old sister read it and loved it as much as me!)

  • Nadia, age 13

    I think it's a terrific start to an awesome series!! I got it on the 1st September somehow, and finished it in 3 hours!!! Now, I'm counting down the days to Vanilla Skye, (September 2011, right?)
    Another great read, definetley worth the wait!!

  • Rozzie, age 12

  • Jess, age 11

    “My world has opened out, filled up with challenges and complications and possibilities.”
    Cathy Cassidy is a successful and very talented author of Dizzy, Indigo Blue, Driftwood, Sundae Girl, Scarlett, Gingersnaps, Lucky Star, Angel Cake and now Cherry Crush; the first book in the series of ‘The Chocolate Box Girls’.

    Cherry Costello and her dad move to Somerset with the quirky and unique Charlotte – Cherry’s dad’s new girlfriend; and her four daughters. Cherry feels finally accepted and part of a real family with Coco, Summer and Skye, but it’s obvious that the gorgeous and outgoing eldest sister - Honey; doesn’t want anything to do with her. What makes matters worse, however hard Cherry fights it, she’s slowly falling in love with Honey’s boyfriend-Shay, can she really compete with her stepsister and is the feeling mutual between Cherry and Shay?

    This enchanting book really captures the motives behind Cherry’s stories and wild imagination to come up with a few white lies to make herself fit in to this new family. Their lives seem pretty much perfect, but with spiteful Honey, love sickening Shay and so many heavenly chocolate truffles thrown into the mixture, live isn’t all sweet.

    Released on the 2nd September this delightful book will capture your imagination and have you on a whirl wind tour!

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,
