Caddy Ever After

Caddy Ever After

For Ages: 9 - 13
  • 3
There are discos at school several times a year, but the Valentine's Day disco is the one that everyone talks about. They only sell the tickets in pairs. You have to ask someone, or be asked by someone before you can go. Torture.

But it won't be torture if Indigo Casson's special plan for the Valentine's Day disco works. Torture is in the cards for Saffy, though, when her first boyfriend decides to take her on an unusual date to a very, very dark graveyard. At least he didn't leave her on a moor with Rose -- yet.

About the Books

The Casson family -- four creative children, an absentminded mother, largely absent father, ragtag group of friends, ramshackle house, and large collection of guinea pigs -- is unlike any you've ever seen. Beginning with Saffy's Angel and continuing through Indigo's Star, Permanent Rose, Caddy Ever After and Forever Rose, Hilary McKay has chronicled the lives of this unique, mad, and utterly brilliant clan. Whether Indigo is dealing with bullies at school, Rose is stealing engagement rings, or Caddy is deciding whom she loves enough to marry, the Casson family is up to the challenge. Quirky, loving, and wise beyond their years, this British brood has advetures you won't want to miss.
