Marshmallow Skye is a stunning story written by the incredible Cathy Cassidy as part of The Chocolate Box Girls Series. It’s all about Skye Tanberry 2nd youngest out of all the sisters who absolutely loves history and all things vintage! Skye and Summer are identical twins both turning 13 and then they’ve got their little sister Coco (11), Eldest sister Honey (15) and step-sister Cherry (14). This book is told from the point of view of Skye and how she feels shadowed by her twin sister and that she’s always second best. Until after Halloween when she is given a box of 1920s dresses and other clothing that belonged to a long lost relative (Clara Jane Travers) with a tragic mystery story! Summer doesn’t agree with all of Clara’s belongings turning up and being around the house and especially doesn’t like Skye wearing the clothes, thinking that something bad could come with them turning up – but that doesn’t stop Skye wearing them and trying to solve the mystery of Clara Jane Travers and her love story! I mean what could possibly be bad about a gorgeous boy named Finch who makes Skye’s heart do back flips!!! I think this book is a superlative read and would totally recommend it to anyone looking for a good book and a fan of Cathy Cassidy. I’d say this book is about an 11+ and I’m most definitely rating it 5/5 stars!!! :-)

I love history. Is really gripping .You can imagine you are skye, or clara, or finch. Glad that Clara Travers didn,t kill herself though. Poor honey must be finding it hard to get used to having Cherry and Paddy around.
