My personal Rating-

There’s just something about reading about girls chasing the dreams that God has placed in their hearts that I just love reading about.
Candy in this book was no different and just as inspiring.
In “Cotton Candy Clouds”, there is also debates about females in a male dominated workforce that’s an important topic for this story. Overall, it was another good Janice Thompson book with lots of faith content that I loved reading! :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

My personal Rating-
{Add ½ star for those interested in teen drama.}
{Add ½ star for those interested in fashion and designer names.}
Ahhh, I remember the first time I read this series and this book specifically. It brought up a lot of emotions for me, as I’m the younger sister, like Erin, in my family. Not quite the same experience as years ago, but there were still twinges. Only two books left in this series to go!

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
