Lists with This Book. Jul 15, Caitriona cassify it it was amazing Shelves: Sometimes I am amazed by what I was reading when I was younger. I was a Jacqueline Wilson superfan from around Year Five onwards, and was regularly reading books about alcoholism, divorce, mental illness, sibling rivalry, bullying and teenage pregnancy.
This kind of stuff would depress me very quickly today, but I just seemed to take it in my stride. When I got a little older, Cathy Cassidy was my next port of call. Believe it or not I had, at a younger age, begun to read ‘Indigo Blue’ – but coul Sometimes I am amazed by what I was reading when I was younger.
Believe it or not I had, at a younger age, begun to read ginhersnaps Blue’ – but couldn’t finish it because I had found it too upsetting. But, when I did finally psyche myself up to reading her books, I found them cassidy be every bit as good as I had found Jacqueline Wilson’s – they even had the hitherto unseen element of romance gingersnxps them. It follows the story of the rather unfortunately named Ginger who, in primary school, was for want of a better word cassiidy nobody. Shy, unfashionable and friendless, Ginger resorted to comfort-eating simply to distract from the lonely life she’d found herself in.
She became overweight as a result – which only made matters worse. Then, as secondary school approached, Ginger’s glamorous older sister Cassia mercifully intervened. She was going to give Ginger a complete image overhaul – Rocket Dog pumps, New Look skirt and fake-it-’til-you-make-it confidence.
Her efforts weren’t wasted – Ginger earned herself some suitably ‘cool’ friends – especially Shannon – and found herself, for once, high on the social cassid. So it’s all good and everyone’s happy. But not for long, as Bob Hale might say, csthy Ginger is soon forced to decide whether it’s better to be hated for gongersnaps you are, or loved for what you’re not. Are this so-called ‘cool’ crowd really as nice as they seem?
I suppose this book struck a chord with me because I read it early on in secondary school myself, and was desperate to shake off the prim-and-proper, goody-two-shoes reputation that had earned me the love of many teachers and fewer classmates in primary school. I grew out my baby fringe, rolled up my skirt and even wore these awful ballerina pumps that kept falling off my feet. All it ever cxthy me was twisted ankles, because I knew in my heart of hearts that it wasn’t worth it.
I would always be me, so Ccassidy decided to embrace it. Ginger was faced with a similar decision, and that was comforting for me.

I rooted for her from page one. Oh, and there’s a romance element in there too. Some guy with floppy hair and blue lemonade and a houseboat. But who cares about him?
It’s Ginger we love! I wholeheartedly award five stars to this, Cathy Cassidy’s best novel, and highly recommend it to anyone who’s ever felt out of place, felt they needed to be someone else, or just want a good read a la Jacqueline Wilson. That is, if you can handle the subject matter!

Feb 16, Sofia rated it it was amazing. I love Gingersnaps, probably because it has such a strong message. It’s really helped me. Starting Secondary School, you have to be really careful with who you become friends with. I’ve found my real friends and we’re all so alike we’re meant to be friends: Ccassidy would read this book because it has really strong messages about friendship.
Apr 19, Ceri rated it liked it Shelves: It still is pretty casdidy, I have to say. Only a few months ago I re-read Ginegrsnaps, so I still think it is a really good book. I love Gingersnaps because of Sam the saxophone player.
Personally, I think saxophones are really vibey and I wish I could play one. The saxophone in Careless Whisper is the best. Sam is a really nice person, and I like how he tries to bring out the best in Ginger. They make a cute couple, it has to be said. He is pretty smart for, what- a twelve year old? Sam and Ginger seem older but in a good way because when I was younger I liked how it showed that some of us younger people are mature even though there are a lot of immature idiots at that age.
Was there blue lemonade somewhere in this novel? Ginger is a swaggy name as well. Casxidy house boat thing is awesome- not that I want to live on a boat. Nov 22, Sidi Bao rated it it was amazing.
I though this was a great book with a plot you could caesidy to. The format of writing was easy to read and Cathy Cassidy made the story interesting throughout. Since, it was my third time reading it, Casidy could cassicy in on all the details!
