Reader Isabela from Serbia loved my book MARSHMALLOW SKYE a lot - until the short story MOON & STARS was published! Read on to find out why!

Isabela says:
You've got me obsessed with MARSHMALLOW SKYE. At first, when I was reading this book I've taken from library about the Tanberry girls, CHERRY CRUSH, I wasn't so fascinated by Skye. But now, MARSHMALLOW SKYE is my favourite book (then SWEET HONEY and then CHERRY CRUSH). MARSHMALLOW SKYE is just like my world - a dreamy, fairytale, mystery, melted in the past. I really felt for Skye in every moment - and like Skye, I too had a serious crush on Finch. Skye and Finch are, or I better say were, a perfect couple. Meant to be. She dreamed about him before she even MET the boy - it was like... well, like a fairytale.

And then I found out about MOON & STARS, and their 'happy ever after' breakup. I wanted to cry. I'm really sensitive about book characters and it really made me sad - it killed the atmosphere that previous book made. Now that I'm over it enough to think about it clearly, I beg you, Cathy Cassidy, even if it sounds impossible, fix their fairytale. I mean it from my heart! I want to be a writer when I grow up (and so much more) and adore the style of CC books. Those books are my role models. Every couple from Tanglewood has a some kind of a happy ending so why not Skye and Finch? Maybe you'll say that that's just the way their story goes... but I won't give up. Please, make these broken hearts happy and (I hope you don't mind if I say this dumb thing) 'together as one' again!

I know that I'm a little late for writing this. Maybe they'll get a happy ending somewhere else with somebody else. And that would be... OK. But, then I don't see the point with all they had before, if they are just gonna let it go and forget it...

Cathy says:
I love it when a reader gets so involved with a story that it feels real - and I do know how Isabela feels. I loved Skye and Finch's romance, but sadly, not all love stories have a happy ending, and not all boys are as perfect as they first seem! How do YOU feel about Skye and Finch's split? COMMENT BELOW to have your say!

  1. Um, ahem, Cathy! You can't do this to us! I totally agree with Isabela! Skye is my favourite CC character of ALL TIME and when I read Moon & Stars, I was like: **gasp** how COULD you!!! My sister warned me not to read it 'cause she knows how much I love Skye.

    Still, I guess I was getting a little (just a LIIIIIITTLE) bit fed up with perfect handsome Finch. The more I read about him, and the more I thought about him, the more SMUG and OVER-GLORIOUS and even (in Moon & Stars) slightly Gary Stu-ish.
