The fourth book in Hilary McKay's laugh-out-loud, award-winning Casson Family series
Written in a light and witty style the ongoing sagas of the Casson family remain a must for that nearly teenage market and this one sees Caddy falling in love and getting married but not to the person everyone thinks. McKay’s ability to understand young people and to be able to write about their daily life – falling in love, going out, living as a family and keeping relationships – is second to none.
It's Valentine's Day and everything's changing. Indigo's in love and wants to do something special to win over Sarah, Saffy has a strange new boyfriend who teaches her all about the stars and Caddy has fallen in love and is getting married . . . but not to Michael. With a wedding to plan, promises to uphold and hearts to protect, everything's a little crazier than usual in the Casson household.
Follow the family's adventures in the rest of the beloved series: Saffy's Angel, Indigo's Star, Permanent Rose, Forever Rose and Caddy's World.
