Caddy Ever After

By Hilary McKay
Rating: 3 3/4 stars
Reviewed by Noelle

The fabulous Casson family has returned! For those of us who enjoyed Saffy's Angel, Indigo's Star (see review) and Permanent Rose, another chapter in the lives of Saffy, Indigo, Caddy and Rose is presented. Despite the book's title, it is not all about Caddy. McKay decides to let all 4 members of the Casson family take a hand chronicling their latest adventures. So we hear about Rose's troubles in the classroom, Indigo's takeover of the Valentine disco and Saffy's new romance which all end up leading to what the title refers to--Caddy meeting the guy who is to be her "Ever After." However, everyone is not as sure as Caddy is about her fiance, since everyone had liked Darling Michael whom she had broken her engagement off with the previous year. Will Caddy buck her family's protests and marry her new beau? Will Rose keep the promise she made to Michael before he left? Will Saffy be able to make up with her friend Sarah? Will Indigo impress the girl he likes? As ever, the Casson family will make you laugh, cry and be happy that you picked up this book to read.
