Tamsyn Murray’s Completely Cassidy books are tuned to the defining things about being a pre-teen girl: giggling with your friends; exasperating – and being exasperated by – your family; suffering waves of excruciating embarrassment (aka cringe-fests) about things no-one else will notice. It’s clear Murray understands her audience very well indeed and her writing is perfectly pitched for their pleasure. This adventure is set during the summer holidays, and features the family holiday in Cornwall, where Cassidy’s dad shows off his Elvis impersonations, and summer theatre school, where she discovers her own thespian talents. Cassidy will cringe, and do a bit of growing up too, and each are described with the lightest of touches. Completely Cassidy, totally enjoyable! ~ Andrea Reece Fans of Cassidy will also enjoy Cathy Cassidy’s Chocolate Box Girls books, and then Cathy Hopkins’s Mates, Dates series.
Tamsyn Murary’s Completely Cassidy stories are just delightful. They follow the adventures of Cassidy Bond as she navigates year seven and a home life recently interrupted by the arrival of twin baby siblings aka The Wide Awake Club. There are various plot strands involving Cassidy, her big brother Liam and friends Shen and Molly, all brought together when someone starts a school website filled with nasty gossip and Cassidy to her horror gets the blame. It makes for very lively reading and the descriptions are spot on: this is school and home life as readers know it, just that bit funnier and shinier. Great fun. ~ Andrea Reece A Piece of Passion from Stephanie King, Usborne Publishing Just thinking about this second book in the Completely Cassidy series makes me grin! Fantastically fresh and funny, this story sees Cassidy become the Year 7 correspondent for her school paper. But how far is Cassidy prepared to go to get the latest gossip on her classmates? Looking at the very real problem of online bullying, but with a refreshing lightness of touch, Star Reporter is both utterly gripping and totally giggle-packed. Told by Cassidy herself in Tamsyn Murray's gorgeously quirky and witty style, sitting down with this book is like chilling out with your BFF. Enjoy!
