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.

Well, it’s happened. I’ve tried and tried not to succumb to Hilary McKay fandom – heaven forbid I care for something everyone else loves too – but with “Caddy Ever After,” I admit defeat. The Cassons have won me over at last – though, looking back, I was halfway there anyway. But this, the best Casson novel so far, has finally left me free to admit it.

It may bear Caddy’s name, but all four Cassons get to tell their side of the story, and Caddy probably gets the shortest section of all. We get to hear Rose’s acute embarrassment at being so scared at a friend’s ghost story she wets her pants in the middle of class. We can howl over Indigo’s frantic attempts to make the Valentine’s Day disco less of a drag – and to convince Sarah to go with him. We can cringe with Saffy when her odd boyfriend drags her and Rose onto a cold, windy moor only to have his car break down. And when Caddy falls head over heels for the wildlife-photographer older brother of Saffy’s odd boyfriend, we (and the younger Cassons are included in this collective) can smack our foreheads in despair. After all, what about Darling Michael?

In “Caddy Ever After,” my main complaint of the series is at last addressed: the lack of kind and responsible adults. Eve Casson is the former and Bill the latter, and it seems as though they’re finally getting credit for their better attributes and mocked for their worse (Bill, of course, will always be a bit callous, and Eve, of course, will always be laughably dreamy). Sarah’s mother, who has seemed rather stern and overprotective in previous books, is now shown to be organized, helpful, and caring toward even the most trying of Cassons. And Rose’s teacher, who may not be a model of patience, is at least a real person – and at least she lets them have Hot Gossip every Friday.

That goes for the kid characters, too: they’re real people. To my surprise, I think I might actually like precocious, often rude Rose, now that I know she intentionally dissuaded Darling Michael from buying her an expensive birthday present because she doesn’t want him to spend too much on her. I sympathize with Saffy when she realizes that her boyfriend may seem romantic but is in fact quite impractical to have around – and I love it even more that he realizes it, too. And my heart melts as Indigo tells a skeptical Sarah of his Valentine’s Day plans: “I am not crazy. This is how I do special.”

And this is how I think Hilary McKay does special. One perspective wasn’t enough: she’s just got to give us all four. And as grateful as I am, I’m hungry for more – Sarah, maybe, or Indigo’s friend David. Maybe even Darling Michael. But hey, now I’m stuck buying the next couple Casson books, so why shouldn’t I hope?

The newest installment of the Casson family series, "Caddy Ever After," is a novel narrated by all child members of the Casson family--Rose, Saffron, Indigo, and Caddy. Each child's point of view on the days leading up to Caddy's wedding is presented in journal form, with most entries coming from Rose and Saffron. A series of seemingly unrelated events (a school dance, Rose's accident at school, a broken-down car, a lightning storm, Sarah's illness) all culminate in the big event.

Many people have complained about the book's title and the fact that it doesn't have much to do with the story. Indeed, Caddy "speaks" very little in the book. But, the intertwined story lines all lead to Caddy's wedding brilliantly.

Hilary McKay's eccentric family is as wonderfully unique as usual, and I really enjoyed the multiple first-person views on a few weeks in the life of the family. Indigo is as taciturn and intelligent as usual, Saffron is suffering from some teenaged angst, and Rose is heartbroken at Caddy's new love-at-first-sight and perplexed by events at school. Rose's school days are particularly poignant. Her best friend Kiran is a hilarious storyteller and her teacher downright funny. When Rose's teacher, for example, hears of Caddy's approaching wedding during "Hot Gossip" time, she responds:

"'Five team points for being a bridesmaid, then, Rose....And for goodness' sake, stop moping. Thousands of people make unsuitable marriages every day and if you feel that strongly you can always voice your objections at the appropriate point in the service. That is why it is there.'"

Well, you can guess what happens. When Caddy, who is marrying the brother of one of Saffy's shortlived boyfriends (met through Indigo), doesn't marry Rose's favorite "darling Michael," she does indeed object. Quite comically, in fact.

"Caddy Ever After" is a touching, smart novel for children ages nine and up. It's funny, intelligent, and so very true. "Caddy Ever After" is highly recommended and a welcome addition to the Casson family saga.

The book "Caddy Ever After" is told in the perspective of four children in the same family, Caddy, Rose, Indigo, and Saffy. Rose, the main character, tells the story of "Ghost Club". During the club, Rose's friends tell creepy stories and she always gets frightened. Rose also tells about her mother her mother paints in her shed and falls asleep there during a lightning storm, because Rose wonders what's going to happen to her mother. The next perspective is told by Indigo. It's about the dance routine Oscar fails, and is later taken over by Indigo. Saffy tells about the adventures they must go though to get home from the middle of nowhere. Caddy's story is being told in her perspective of how she is going to marry "darling" Micheal. Rose is against this, all because of Alex. Rose ends the book with a day at school. This book is the the end of a series. I highly recommend it to everyone! I couldn't put the book down( and I hate (I mean HATE books)) and I cant wait to read the first three!
