I liked reading it because when I read the lines I got images in my head like I could see it happening and I found that really cool because that doesn't happen to me most of the time only sometimes ...more
I love Floss' character and how she finally stands up for herself towards the end, and I especially like Susan's character - she seems kind of similar to me. Rhiannon is absolutely horrible person, but it's much needed for a story like this, she turns everything over with her annoying new friends Judy and Margot.

The book Candyfloss is a book that involves some childish problems. The book was an okay book but I think that the book was more for younger kids than me because the whole book is about a young girl, about 9, who is trying to decide to either move to Australia with her mom and step dad for 6 months or stay in her ho ...more
The book was far too predictable, but it wasn't a book that you could just pick up and read without thought. It was a book that wanted to suck my face off and turn it into a bubbling dollop of gloop.

I must have started reading these over 8 years ago and still remember most of the stories and characters. I believe these books were amazing during my childhood.
Some being better than others, shown in my star ratings. I hope to get my hands on some of my fav books from this author soon.
Another thing we could learn from this book is even though friends are important, it doesn't mean they could hurt you.
