    I felt a little trepidation going into this because Caddy is my least favorite of the Casson kids It s not that I dislike her, but she s so fluffy headed I feel impatient when she takes center stage so it was a surprise that I actually wish she hadof a role in this book It just seems unfair that she has such a walk on role in her book Rose takes center stage once again And I m afraid that I m getting a little tired of her As she gets older the rude precocious naif persona gets a I felt a little trepidation going into this because Caddy is my least favorite of the Casson kids It s not that I dislike her, but she s so fluffy headed I feel impatient when she takes center stage so it was a surprise that I actually wish she hadof a role in this book It just seems unfair that she has such a walk on role in her book Rose takes center stage once again And I m afraid that I m getting a little tired of her As she gets older the rude precocious naif persona gets a little tired two years of book time don t seem to have made her any older I also wasn t wild about the essays as chapters technique with the different kids writing For one thing their voices weren t distinct enough, even though they are years apart in age Also, the previous book made a big point about how Rose can hardly read or write, so I didn t believe that she could write the stories included here But there were some very good and funny scenes, and McKay is as always excellent at capturing feelings

    My least favorite Casson novel, so far And by a relatively wide margin Epistolary novels are hard enough, but none of the Cassons have been terribly writerly and it strained credulity a bit to have, say, Rose detailing actual conversations Add that I really didn t care much for the various storylines and you have a book that felt like it was mostly filler.Oh, and what s up with it carrying Caddy s name in the title but only having her even show up in the last few pages Which is bad enough, b My least favorite Casson novel, so far And by a relatively wide margin Epistolary novels are hard enough, but none of the Cassons have been terribly writerly and it strained credulity a bit to have, say, Rose detailing actual conversations Add that I really didn t care much for the various storylines and you have a book that felt like it was mostly filler.Oh, and what s up with it carrying Caddy s name in the title but only having her even show up in the last few pages Which is bad enough, but when she finally does arrive, she s even dumber than in the last book Gah view spoiler At least there s a glimmer of hope in the end, even if she wasn t smart enough to dump the loser Alex herself hide spoiler So should I chance the next Forever Rose That s a promising title, right

    I want this series to continue until there isn t a Casson left alive, and I want them all to live to an astounding age.

    Huh This was an odd one I knew from reading friends reviews that this wasn t really Caddy s story which is a shame I LOVE Caddy , but I still wasn t prepared for how little she was in it.And I liked the first two thirds, but that last thirdview spoiler Okay, so I d read all the descriptions before I started the series and, after finishing the first book, I was worried about this one because I d grown quite attached to Michael That worry diminished some after the next two books sinc Huh This was an odd one I knew from reading friends reviews that this wasn t really Caddy s story which is a shame I LOVE Caddy , but I still wasn t prepared for how little she was in it.And I liked the first two thirds, but that last thirdview spoiler Okay, so I d read all the descriptions before I started the series and, after finishing the first book, I was worried about this one because I d grown quite attached to Michael That worry diminished some after the next two books since he wasn t around as much, plus the engagement weirdness.But the whole Alex thing just came out of nowhere and there wasn t really enough time devoted to it Why was Caddy attracted to him in the first place Just the animals I neededof her pining after Michael I mean, I m assuming we were supposed to think that was some of what was going on.And all the wedding stuff just made me uncomfortable It seemed clear that Caddy wasn t that into him and I justit was really uncomfortable reading I guess I feel like a family like theirs would ve done something before they got to the actual wedding I don t mean to put the responsibility for Caddy s choices on her family, but everything went so very, very quickly, and kind of left me confused about Caddy s feelings and, really, everyone s feelings about Alex beyond him being not Michael hide spoiler

    Rose somewhere along the way completely took over apparently Really all of these last four books are all about Rose, even though Indigo and Caddy get their names mentioned in two of the titles Caddy is actually the Casson represented the least in this volume I did like the format though It made for a somewhat disjointed narrative, but the switch to first person and having each kid narrate a different section really made their personalities stand out I found each part to distinct and individ Rose somewhere along the way completely took over apparently Really all of these last four books are all about Rose, even though Indigo and Caddy get their names mentioned in two of the titles Caddy is actually the Casson represented the least in this volume I did like the format though It made for a somewhat disjointed narrative, but the switch to first person and having each kid narrate a different section really made their personalities stand out I found each part to distinct and individual, sounding genuine to the characters I ve come to know Caddy s part is as ditsy and scatterbrained as she is Rose s parts she gets two sound much younger than the others and her observations are delightful I love her childhood assurance that she is so wise while at the same time demonstrating she has so much to learn Saffy continues to be remote, even in first person, but is smart and wonderful I loved watching her weather a difficult time with Sarah Which brings me to Indigo, who, this book cemented it, is my absolute favorite He is awesome One of those silent lazy types you need to watch out for because when they are only silent and lazy until they want something And his date for the Valentine s Disco Did not imagine that would happen, but I liked it and would have liked to seecome of it

    I was mildly disappointed with this entry in the series, after the first three The quadruple narrative simply didn t work for me The siblings voices all sounded too much the same, especially as none of them used contractions even in dialogue , which sounded unnatural None of the plot threads got enough space what about Indigo and Sarah Saffy and Oscar , and for a book named for Caddy, hers was the shallowest section of all I do think hers is the least interesting character of the four s I was mildly disappointed with this entry in the series, after the first three The quadruple narrative simply didn t work for me The siblings voices all sounded too much the same, especially as none of them used contractions even in dialogue , which sounded unnatural None of the plot threads got enough space what about Indigo and Sarah Saffy and Oscar , and for a book named for Caddy, hers was the shallowest section of all I do think hers is the least interesting character of the four siblings and possibly is better seen from the outside, but her plotting needed muchspace I do hope the next book is better

    This is perhaps my favorite book in the series I love how different members of the Casson family take turns narrating their own sections of the book It is different from the other three before it because this book is written in first person as opposed to third person This different perspective givesroom for the individual characters to show their personalities and styles of writing I especially like Rose s section she has such a simple, matter of fact way of talking that makes it hila This is perhaps my favorite book in the series I love how different members of the Casson family take turns narrating their own sections of the book It is different from the other three before it because this book is written in first person as opposed to third person This different perspective givesroom for the individual characters to show their personalities and styles of writing I especially like Rose s section she has such a simple, matter of fact way of talking that makes it hilarious to read

    Caddy, Saffy, Indigo, and Rose are back in the next volume of the Casson family This time it s a little different as all the children narrate throughout the book Saffy and Sarah are dreading the upcoming Valentine s dance and Saffy is haunted by a balloon Rose is still mooning over Tom in America and sets out to make him a perfect Valentine s Day cardas well as a perect night sky for herself Indigo is determined to change the traditional rules for the dance And Caddy is moving on after M Caddy, Saffy, Indigo, and Rose are back in the next volume of the Casson family This time it s a little different as all the children narrate throughout the book Saffy and Sarah are dreading the upcoming Valentine s dance and Saffy is haunted by a balloon Rose is still mooning over Tom in America and sets out to make him a perfect Valentine s Day cardas well as a perect night sky for herself Indigo is determined to change the traditional rules for the dance And Caddy is moving on after Michael All of the stories are completely intertwined and we seeof the Casson family than we have before.I still haven t liked any of the books quite as well as the first, Saffy s Angel But this was a nice twist on the series although I was hoping for a book all Caddy s own, as she is one of my favorite characters and I feel like we still don t know enough about her I don t think that this one was as funny as the previous ones, either Nonetheless, it is an important volume in the series
