Cathy Cassidy’s stirring teen novels have a huge following. Their optimism, realism and empathy explain their popularity, especially with girls, and are perfect for fans of Jacqueline Wilson.

More about Cathy: “I was born in 1962 in Coventry (scarily ancient, I know!). I wrote my first picture book for my little brother when I was eight or nine. I loved making comics, too – pages and pages of picture stories, features and competitions. I’d sell my homemade comic to a friend for 5p, then claim it back and sell it again to someone else,they didn’t have photocopiers back then!

I went to Art College in Liverpool, then got a job as fiction editor on the fab and legendary Jackie magazine. Later, I married my boyfriend Liam, went back to college and trained to be an art teacher. I taught in a Coventry secondary school for a few years, which I loved, then moved to Scotland with Liam to start a family.

My kids are 13 and 14 years old now, and the four of us live in a cottage in the Galloway hills with sheep and cows for neighbours. As well as writing books, I am the agony aunt on Shout magazine and sometimes teach art in the local primary schools, which is great fun and keeps me sane. (Well, maybe!)

I’ve been veggie for 30 years, and was vegan for 8 of them – a chocolate-eating vegan, like Storm! I love old clothes, old toys, cars, books. We have three cats, two rabbits and a mad, hairy lurcher called Kelpie (the model for Leggit in my book Dizzy).

I love my family, I love living in the middle of nowhere and I love my work. Of all my jobs, writing has to be the best – it’s the perfect excuse to daydream, after all!”

    I really liked this it was brill! Lawrie was such an inspirational character and Coco’s ideas were so nuts but amazing! I didn’t actually like Coco’s friends they seemed a bit self obsessed and not interested much in her plans. But I loved the book in total! :-)

    I’ve read the book which you gave me “Coco Caramel” by Cathy Cassidy. I really enjoyed this book, as soon as I started it, I couldn’t put it down. I think I literally just sat down in one place and read the entire book because it was so good. My favourite character has got to be Lawrie because even though at the start of the book, he seemed really mean and moody, you just find out later as the story progresses that he actually isn’t a mean person, he’s actually a really nice, caring character who just has a rough family background, so it was really interesting to see that new character if you like as a reader. My least favourite character is Honey (the oldest sister of Coco’s) because she seems quite wild and out of control. She forces her sisters to lie about what’s she’s doing, to their parents and her sisters have to watch her parents suffer and stress over Honey because of the things she’s doing. My favourite part in the book is when Coco and Lawrie rescue the two horses from that mean old man’s house as it’s really exciting to read and I could imagine the whole scene in my head as I was reading it. My least favourite part is when the people at the stable sell the house, Caramel, because she’s untrained and a danger to the riders. I found that quite unfair to Coco and the horse, and thought they should just keep the horse but take the time to train it. My rating for this book would be 5/5 and I would recommend it to anyone who likes animals especially horses, or anyone between the age of 8-13.
