      a nice read

      Marshmallow Skye is the second in the Chocolate Box Girls series by Cathy Cassidy.

      This story follows the life of the sister Skye. Skye has a twin sister, Summer, who she feels she is drifting apart from and is missing the closeness they used to have. After a Halloween party the girls find a box full of vintage items which Skye becomes very interested in as she believes it belongs to Clara Travers. A young girl who lived in there house a hundred years ago and mysteriously disappeared. Believing she is being given clues to the secret, Skye begins to investigate, much to Summers disapproval.

      When I first started to read this book I thought it would be about both of the twins but I was pleased that it only focused on Skye as the two girls are different people with different opinions and personalities.

      I enjoyed the parts of the book where we got to read Skye's dreams of Clara as it helped to imagine Skye perspective on the situations. It was interesting to discover Clara's life with Skye and to have the chance to also piece the puzzle together.

      I liked the character Alfie and admired his persistence but couldn't help feeling like he was going for the wrong girl.

      I was surprised at the ending but it fit well with the story. It left me wanting to read more of the story but I was still satisfied that all my questions had been answered. Overall it was a brilliant book and I think I preferred it to the first one.
