The Lovereading4Kids comment
December 2015 Book of the Month Cathy Cassidy writes brilliantly observed stories of contemporary teenage life, and the characters in her Chocolate Box Girls series are hugely popular with young readers. Though the series ended with Fortune Cookie, this special collection brings together six satisfying stories about the girls and their extended family, mostly written from the viewpoint of one of the minor characters. There’s a typical Cassidy mix of romance, jealousy and friendship to be enjoyed, and some extra insight to be had into the characters of the girls. Fans of the series will gobble it up, and it will probably send them back to the original books with even more enthusiasm. ~ Andrea Reece
***And all Cathy fans will love The Chocolate Box Secrets. It's a delicious scrapbook of fun, creative ideas from the Chocolate Box Girls.
Make your own vintage style top or try some of the recipes and there are some cool ideas to make your sleepovers really fun!
