It’s mostly girls who read my books… or is it? Who says that boys don’t want to read real-life, growing up stories about friendship, families and falling in love? Boys have friends, families and feelings too, after all!

Boys DO read my books, but they don’t post on the website as often as girls. (OK, OK, I know… the website IS very pink!!!!) Do YOU know a boy who enjoys my books? A friend, a brother, a classmate, a boyfriend? If so, get him to post a comment through the link below explaining why he likes the books… I’ll post the best online and print the VERY best in a brand new CC minibook, Cupcakes & Kisses, to be given away free with UK mag Mizz in the summer!

Who knows, there could be some boy readers out there who are just as cool as Finn, Kian, Sam, Carter, Paul and Mouse…

Get those comments coming… let’s hear it for the boys!!!

  5. If you want more male readers you should write another book from a boys perspective because i lent a copy of lucky star to my boy bestie and he loved it but hes to ashamed to read Dizzy and scarlett and ginger snaps ect. but hes halway through driftwood so i reckon write a book from a boys perspective

  6. hey Cathy! You know why i think most boys don’t read books that us girls do? I think it’s coz they’re trying to impress their mates and acting tough. I think they would enjoy your books if they actually started to read them. Not many boys at my school read books that girls read- it’s all football ext. However, if their friends read the books i’m sure they will! x

  7. I recently tried to get a certain boy to read a CC book. It was also because a teacher had asked me to tell him aboutany competitions to do with writing as I’d previously told her I wanted to be an author. When he told her, he alo wanted to be an author, she told him to see me. Unfortunately, I’d recently had a fight with his girlfriend and she practically bit my head off when I went near him. I managed to tell him in maths though and now I told him about the site and also about Driftwood. Unfortunately, the piece of paper I gave him with the site address on, the boys found. They’d previously seen me on the site and wrote all over the sheet saying it was girly. I really felt for him and the worst thing was, I think it was his girlfriend who wrote over it after the boys showed it to her. I made me really sad to watch him when I’d caused it. Why shouldn’t boys get a chance to read what they want? I totally agree with the comment: Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. I don’t understand why people are so cruel. It’s not just the boys who are mean though, if his girlfriend did that to him, them I expect the others did too. You can certainly understand why I am no longer friends with her.
    Cathy: I love your books! I borrowed my friend’s copy of Ginger Snaps yesterday afternoon and I finished reading it this morning. It was so like my life, it was unbelievable. Unfortunately, I’m sad to say a certain boy in a trilby hat is not part of my problem.

  8. I have to tell the truth, I posted this just for laughs… I’m really a girl. Yeah, I think that boys could read this books, it might be a little wierd though. I know a guy in my class who reads “Rainbow Faries” it’s kind of hilarious, even the girls in my class don’t read those kid books. I really like Cathy Cassidy books. Keep on writing!
