The Lovereading4Kids comment
All the teenage humours of romance, jealousy, friendship and sorrow rage freely in this brilliantly observed story of contemporary life. Cherry tells what it feels like to arrive in a new family. Her dad has fallen in love with an old college friend and soon he and Cherry are off to a new life. Cherry charts the ups and downs of her adjustment to the new ‘family’ with the particular difficulty of Honey who clearly doesn’t want her and her equally up and down feelings about the gorgeous Shay. Cathy Cassidy’s insight into teenage thinking is pin-point sharp while her light tone makes the story sing.
Chocolate Box Girls: Cherry Crush by Cathy Cassidy
Cherry Costello's life is about to change forever. She and Dad are moving to Somerset where a new mum and a bunch of brand-new sisters await. And on Cherry's first day there she meets Shay Fletcher; with suntanned skin and sea-green eyes he's the kind of boy who should carry a government health warning. But Shay already has a girlfriend, Cherry's new stepsister, Honey. Cherry knows her friendship with Shay is dangerous - it could destroy everything. But that doesn't mean she's going to stay away from him...
