  2. Hey Cathy! 😀

    OMG I love your books so much! I love Cherry Crush, Marshmallow Skye and Summer’s Dream, and I also love Scarlett, Indigo Blue and I’m currently reading Angel Cake. I am a new fan so the books I said I loved are the only ones I have read, but there is a few more at the School Library so I will be able to read some more! x3 P.S I ♥ your books! ;]

  3. I think that my number 1 tip for settling into a new school/class is just to try to make some friends by being friendly and showing that you are a good friend and that you’ll be there for them. It is then essential that you don’t drop your friends as soon as you have them– keep friendly!! x

  4. Dear Cathy,
    I know this will sound wierd but I really think you should look into making your books into films !!! I also think they should be open auditions so that all the CC fans couuld audition !!! I know it probably isn’t a very good idea but my friends and I all think it is a good idea ! L x

  5. I hope it is okay to post another comment on this site.

    I agree.

    I think that would be lovely to have films of Cathy’s books.

    Especially The Chocolate Box Girls series.

    Well when i started year 7 two years ago i went about it the wrong way, i was moody and didn’t really talk to anybody. But around christmas i lightened up and now i have some amazing, mental friends!!! So my tip is be happy, laugh loudly and be yourself ‘cos your amazing! x
    Oh and i love all your books cathy, i’ve read alomost every single one! Love them! But when’s the next choclate box girls book coming out??? x

  8. I would love it if Cathy’s books were made in to films and so would Cathy but Cathy explained to me that is up to film producers!
    I would love it if they bought out Summer’s Dream and Dizzy and Lucky Star as films because Summer’s Dream raised so much awareness about Anorexia and Dizzy And Lucky Star helps people to understand that people who have addictions are poorly not silly
