“The central character is Summer Tanberry. The significant others include her sisters Honey, Cherry and Coco and her twin sister Skye. Her mum and Paddy as well as Grandma Kate are important throughout the story. There is also a TV filming cast who comes and films their movie at Tanglewood house.The setting is in England, in a house called Tanglewood, by the sea and the countryside.The story takes place in the 21st Century. The character's challenge is that Summer has been accepted for an audition at a Royal Ballet School and she is stressing. She is stressing so much that she doesn't eat, she isn't healthy and she is failing at her audition.
The story made me feel happy and sad at the same time for their family, because it got broken and everything was chaos and then it got back together, although it was still chaos.The story also made me feel happy that I didn't have that kind of eating disorder and it made me think that I should be happy for myself.The plot was perfectly realistic, it was a thing that does happen in real life to some teenage girls of the age of Summer and Skye (13) as well as all teenagers, usually girls. The characters were completely realistic and I knew them because it was the third book in a series that I love-the Chocolate Box Girls.The scariest bit was when she started being extremely thin, only skin and bone. It made me want to finish the book really quickly, although I already knew the ending, it made me feel like I didn't know what was going to happen.In this story, I learnt that worrying too much about something will make you become obsessed and unhealthy, for example Summer got an eating disorder from all the stress.I would totally recommend this book to a friend because it is what could happen to us and it is important to know what the consequences would be if we ever got too stressed or caught into something. I would recommend this book especially for teenage girls, or even 12 year old girls. It might seem girly, but it isn't, it's a really serious issue. If you read this book, Enjoy! Even though I have re-read this book just recently, I still found it amazing as always. ”

Cathy Cassidy has taught an important message here, and I admire her for the manner in which she has done it.”Rachel wrote this review Wednesday, July 3, 2013.
