Reviews of Cherry Crush
  • Zoe B - Dream Teamer

    Cherry feels she is a misfit. She has no friends and lives with her dad and her fish Rover in a flat in Glasgow. Her mum died when she was only four, leaving Cherry with very few memories of her. The only way she seems to cope with life is by telling ‘imaginative stories’ which is basically lying – Which is never a good idea.
    Then Cherry’s life changes, forever. Her dad falls in love and they both move to Somerset where a brand new mum and four new sisters await. But then she meets Shay Fletcher, who Cherry instantly falls for. But Shay is Honey’s boyfriend, the eldest of her sisters. If she made the wrong move, it could destroy everything. But does that mean she’ll stay away?
    This is a brilliant book. There is no other way to say how much I enjoyed it. Cathy writes, the way every writer should, about something they love – For Cathy, that has to be chocolate!
    The story line got you pined ’till the end. The most amazing descriptions, that made your mouth water – apart from the curry truffles…
    A must read, one of Cathy’s best!

    I thought Cherry Crush was an amazing book. The plot and characters were so believable that every page had me hooked. Life for Cherry isn't easy. She lives in Scotland with her Dad and has no friends at school. In an attempt to fit in, Cherry lies about her life- but it all backfires when the truth is revealed. One day, her Dad meets up with an old art school friend and they fall in love. Cherry's Dad has dreams of running a chocolate business instead of working at McBean's Chocolate Factory and he and his new partner, Charlotte are going to make those dreams a reality. Cherry and her Dad move to Somerset to live with Charlotte and her four daughters, Honey, Skye, Summer and Coco. But, when Cherry falls for Honey's boyfriend, Shay, and her Dad proposes to Charlotte, there's trouble. Will Cherry's new life come crashing down? Will Cherry's wishes come true? Will life for Cherry be sweet or sour? Cherry Crush is a brilliant book full of drama, love, friendship and chocolate. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a great read. 10/10.

  • Somerset - Dream Teamer!

    I loved Cherry Crush and it is now my favourite Cathy Cassidy book! The characters were so believable (I just wanted to slap Honey!) and my favourite character was Summer, I like stories about step-families because I am in a a similar situation myself and this was an especially good one I loved the Chocolate festival and I now really want a box of chocs from The Chocolate Box!

    I started reading Cherry Crush and I can't wait to read the whole story!
    I love the title, "Chocolate box girls" It makes me think of a box of chocs which has different flavours and each of them is a sister. For example, Cherry can be cherry flavoured!

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,
