Ginger Snaps

Ginger used to be an outsider, always on the fringes of friendship. Not any more. She’s swapped puppy fat and pigtails for make-up and hair straighteners, and never looked back – until now. Ginger and Shannon are best mates, but when they befriend lonely Emily, everything changes. Even the cute saxophone-playing boy in the trilby hat can’t help. He’s part of the problem! Are Ginger and Shannon drifting apart, or can they stay best friends forever? A gorgeously tender-hearted tale of secrets, friends and fitting in from bestselling author Cathy Cassidy.

    Personally i think this is one of Cathy’s best books. It shows high school through true eyes, and lots of school girls can relate to this book. The way it is written is fab. Cathy is a GENIUS !
