Ayant adoré la série des Filles au Chocolat, j'attendais avec impatience la sortie d'Aux Délices des Anges !

La plume de l'auteure est toujours aussi agréable à lire et autant dire que j'ai dévoré le roman (la couverture donne aussi envie n'est-ce pas ? ^^).

On découvre Anya, âgée de 13 ans qui doit quitter ses amis et son pays, la Pologne, pour aller s'installer en Angleterre avec sa famille. Son père a trouvé du travail là-bas et espère pouvoir améliorer leurs conditions de vie.

This is a fun book about a young girl's experiences as she moves to Liverpool in the UK from her home in Poland.

As Anya struggles to fit in at her new school, she deals with issues of peer pressure, bullying and loneliness. As the story progresses, Anya discovers that her new friendships give her the strength to deal with the trials and disappointments that come her way.

There is a lot of humour and fun in this novel, but it is also a great story for young girls to encourage them to believe in th

Really enjoyable. A teen book full of romance, problems and happy endings. It tells the story of Anya, a girl from Poland. She moves to Liverpool, for her dad's work and discovers that England is not all the book says. School is a struggle, home is dreadful and the only way she can survive the cold and lonely months is to make friends. She makes friends, enemies, cakes and slowly her life begins to patch together, whether for better or for worse is for you to decide!

2.5 Stars.
The story is mediocre, more on the 'Good' side. Even though the character development and turning points are fast paced, it would make a fair book for someone who is in middle school or a bit younger than that. Another thing is, how can Dan kiss her so soon? That was Awkward and way too immediate. I also think Cathy Cassidy failed to make Dan look really, really bad boy. What I liked in the book is how a young girl has to move to a different city, and how different and difficult it is.

My reading experience began with Cathy's books and I loved every single one of them. So, this year I decided to go back and read a few of them again and I did not regret it. It is so fun to go back to these books for children which are full of happy and light vibes and take a break from the books I usually read.

A vrai dire, je n'ai pas du tout aimé cette histoire. J'aurais peut-être dû la lire dans mon enfance o/
La fin est ennuyeuse et ressemble aux contes de fée. A un moment même, je commençais à me demander si le héros (j'ai oublié son nom tiens) est humain ou non xD

What a book! I have to say after all the Cathy Cassidy books (only a few) I think this is my old time favourite.

A girl who comes from Poland comes to live with her dad. She meets a bad boy. Cute but bad. I love that Cathy has put a bad girl between them both. Splitting them up. But no matter what happens they always find each other at the end.

I enjoyed this one much more than the last few of hers that I've had (via an ILL in the library). much more upbeat, with likeable and realistic characters.

I really liked this book and it made me feel lots of different emotions for Angel and her family. Angel had just moved from Poland with her family (Mum, Dad and sister) to England and Angel didn't fit into her new school very well. She didn't talk much and people can't understand her, but her little sister made lots of friends in her school. Her family was struggling with money and after Christmas they were going to have to move back to Poland. She falls in love with a bad boy Dan, who has a tro ...more

I'm reaching that stage in my life now, where I've been reading adult and young adult literature for a good few years, and I've decided that it's probably time to renounce those books that I read as a much younger girl and, and get them off my bookshelf, to make room for all my new books, but before I do, I want to read them all again, and I started with Cathy Cassidy's 'Angel Cake'.

Après la saga des "Filles au chocolat", Cathy Cassidy revient avec une nouvelle héroïne : Anya et un nouveau one-shot tout aussi gourmand : "Aux délices des Anges". Comme toujours avec les romans de Cathy Cassidy, j'ai passé un agréable moment. Même si le roman s'adresse aux onze/quatorze ans, les lecteurs plus âgés pourront l'apprécier tout autant. "Aux délices des anges" est à la fois un conte de Noël et un roman moderne pour adolescentes.

Après le succès de sa série Les filles au chocolat, Cathy Cassidy revient avec un nouveau one shot gourmand et une nouvelle héroïne tout aussi irrésistible ! On y retrouve à peu près les mêmes problématiques et la même trame narrative que dans ses précédentes productions, à savoir des personnages charismatiques, attachants et une histoire toute simple, pleine de bons sentiments, qui aborde avec finesse quelques uns des grands problèmes de l'adolescence.

Ceux ou celles qui me suivent régulièrement savent que j’ai adoré la première saga de Cathy Cassidy traduit en français : Les filles au chocolat. Alors je peux vous dire que lorsque j’ai trouvé le premier tome d’Aux délices des anges dans ma boîte aux lettres, j’ai sauté de joie.

I'm a definite fan of Cathy Cassidy's books. She's similar to Jacqueline Wilson in that her characters come from diverse backgrounds and often belong to non-nuclear families and families with financial difficulties. Angel Cake is no exception. Its protagonist is Anya, a young girl who has just arrived in Liverpool from Poland. Her father has brought the family to England to make a better life there, but the reality is different from Anya's dreams and the financial climate means that t
