The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is the 5th and final instalment about the Casson family which began with Saffy’s Angel. Forever Rose is both funny and touching. The author has a deft lightness of touch that teenagers all over will enjoy. Told over just one month in the lead up to new year’s eve it has all the hallmarks of a great read for teenagers and an antidote to all that is bad in our world today.

Forever Rose by Hilary Mckay
It's tough being the youngest - Rose is feeling lonely. The rest of her family are always so busy doing their own things that Rose comes home to a dark, quiet, empty house every day. Saffy is off with Sarah, Indigo has his paper round and guitar lessons, Eve's in quarantine in the shed, Bill's not much use in London, and who knows where Caddy is since she disappeared with Michael's postcards! The only one around is David and Rose would rather be alone than be with him! At least Rose still has her friends at school: the brilliant Kiran and the nice but boring Molly. But school is no longer a peaceful place where Rose can daydream. Mean Mr Spencer is always shouting about SATs. And now he's cancelled Christmas! But one thing Mr Spencer can't cancel is the Christmas School Trip which means Rose can help Molly with her One Big Idea ...but what could that be? Will it be a very merry Christmas for Class 6 and the Casson family?
