All she wants is a hassle-free life - but it's not easy when she's chasing her mum's trail of broken promises. Nothing seems to go Jude's way, until she realizes the floppy-haired boy from school could be her knight on shining rollerblades.

  • Lily, age 14

    Omigod i loved this book so much. i am actually in love with kevin carter - he is so sweet and i love the valentines pressie!!! it was such a fantastic book and it made me cry so much at the end when....... which i cant say incase people have not yet read the book!!! i think evryone should read it and realise that really there parents arent that embarassing and that they are just lucky to have them!! thank you so much cathy cassidy i really enjoyed it!!!

  • Caroline, age 15

    I have just finished your book. it was brilliant! i didnt like the ending part though, it made me cry :( i liked the way Jude's mum was unpredictable because it made the book even harder to put down! i think that anyone who a parent with alcohol problems would be able to relate to this book in a lot of ways. it has made me understand more about the disease that Judes gran suffered from too. i think that it was good how there were sad parts of the story but there were also funny parts-especially with Toto the dog!! this is a brilliant book which i would recommend to everyone!

  • Rosie, age 17

  • Abigail, age 11

    this book is so cool!! i love the part where carter sends a message to jude saying do you prefer mushy peas or curry sauce!! i fell about laughing!! i love the way you write storys cathy,pick up that pencil and do your stuff!!

  • Hannah. age 14

    i've read all of cathy cassidy's books, which are quite frankly some of the best teenage books i've ever read! you really relate to Jude and cathy cassidy really knows what goes in teenager's heads! its pretty amazing really. the story goes into her family life and how her mum drinks a lot and eventually admits she has a problem, after many unkept promises and false hope. Something really bad happens in Jude's family. I cried so much! so be warned. you might need a box of tissues! Jude gets lovely suprise at the end! It soon becomes clear that this book still maintains the superb quality of all of the other books by Cathy Cassidy. This is a story which tells about a young girl's courage to help her alocholic mum. Its inspiring, romantic and really touches the heart. It's a must read!

    I loved Sundae Girl. When i first started reading it i couldn't put it down until i had read the whole book. I finished it in an hour.

  • Katherine, age 14

    I think that Sundae Girl was a really good book, it was so good I couldn't put it down until I had found out what happens, like if Carter (Kevin), and Jude go out with each other, and if the marriage between her Dad and Victoria goes right.... a really good book!!!!

  • Emily, age 10

    sundae girl was one of the best books i have ever read it made me cry at the end!i love all of your books cathy and i really hope you publish lots more for the future.

  • Fiona, age 14

    Oh my word! These books get better and better each time. Sundae Girl is a fabby book. I love the characters -especially Jude and Carter - and the story was really gripping. I was getting travel sickness becuase I couldn't put it down when I was going on holiday. It's funny how Jude and me both passed our Grade 4 piano with merit. READ THIS AND READ THIS NOW!!!!!!

    1st Cathy Cassidy Book I Have Ever Read , Really Enjoying It . Got It Today From Waterstones Cos I Saw It On the Advertisement On The Back Of Mizz And I Was Like " I GOTTA GET THAT BOOK ! " . I Reccomend It To Any Girls Who Like A Funny Story .

  • Nicole, age 14

    Oh My God! This book is really good. I'm on the last chapter, it's sad and funny. I'm really glad i brought this book. Once i've finshed it i'll probably read it again so it's stuck in my mind or borrow it to a friend. It's taken me three days to read it and i can't wait to read another one of her books.

  • Hannah, age 11

    Hi Cathy I thought sundae girl was absoloutely great! I like romance stories so this book was good for me. I only got this book yesterday (April 14th) and have already finished it! I found it really sad that Jude's Gran had Old-timer's disease. If I had to give this book a rating out of five it would be five!

  • Charlotte, age 13

    The book is as fantastic as the others. Although I don't have embarrising parents or grandparents I can relate to how Jude is feeling about not being able to let anyone get close. Can't wait to read the next book! Your books are like an addiction.
