I am reviewing Candy and The Broken Biscuits by Lauren Laverne. This book was interesting and I would love to say realistic, but it wasn’t. Candy Caine (yes, that’s her name) is on a rollercoaster ride to the world’s biggest music festival. Misunderstood musical genius Candy Caine – age fifteen – knows she’s destined for a bigger life beyond her small-town existence. And now Mum is marrying The World’s Dullest ManTM it’s time to put plans into action and achieve world domination with her band, The Broken Biscuits. Oh – and find her real dad, who will most definitely be cool and, of course, will verify her own super specialness. With a battered old guitar and some supernatural assistance, can Candy get her life on track and her new band on the road to greatness?
It was a shame she wasn’t so “real”, as it was a fantastic story and made me want to read the next one in this fantastic series.
