The Chocolate Box Girls Part 2 Marshmallow Skye by Cathy Cassidy

Marshmallow Skye by Cathy Cassidy. Pub. Penguin Australia, 2011.

Skye has a twin sister, Summer, who she feels is better than her and she is wrong.  The twins are in those pre teen years and on the verge of big changes including discovering boys.

They are part of a family that is changing. Mother is remarrying a nice man involved in making chocolates but his daughter Cherry waltzes off with elder sister Honey’s boyfriend. There is tension in the house.

When an old trunk belonging to a girl, Clara, who disappeared decades ago, is found in the attic, Skye starts to wear all the old fashion clothes from within and the dreams start. Dreams of a dark haired handsome gypsy boy who was rumoured to have caught Clara’s fancy before she disappeared. Spooky!

Great story of family relations told in a witty and positive fashion by Cathy Cassidy. This Chocolate Box Girls series will have seven more parts and girls of primary and intermediate school age will love them. I  really enjoyed this one.
