Summer’s Dream

SUMMER is quiet, confident, pretty, popular and VERY serious about dance . . .

Summer has always dreamed of dancing, and when a place at ballet school comes up, she wants it so badly it hurts.

Middle school ends and the holidays begin, but unlike her sisters, Summer has no time for lazy days and sunny beach parties. The audition becomes her obsession, and things start spiralling out of control . . .

The more Summer tries to find perfection, the more lost she becomes. Will she realise – with the help of the boy who wants more than friendship – that dreams come in all shapes and sizes?

    Summer Dream was BRILLIANT up to page 90 then the whole eating disorder thing spiraled out of control and I felt like the message you were try to put across took over the story. I am a dancer myself and I can see how easy it is to fall into eating disorders. But still, you could have given us a happy ending. I am a HUGE fan of yours I LOVED cherry crush, coco caramel, and sweet honey and, of course, not forgetting marshmallow Skye. Just some criticism from me and my friends who read the book too. PS: the book inspired me to practice dance for at least one hour a day. Thank you so much for reading this. I hope it helps you!

    Amazing book, Cathy! It’s the first book in the chocolate box girls series that is on a cause, a cause that causes thousands of deaths every year. I loved it! Please do more books like this- I loved it!
