Book Description

13 May 2004 Casson Family (Book 11)
Indigo's going back to school after a long bout of glandular fever. He's not looking forward to it, as he knows the bullies will be waiting for him. But he's determined to stand on his own two feet - so when Saffy and Sarah break up a fight in the boys' bathroom, he's furious. Until he meets Tom. Tom is over from the States for a term, staying with his gran while his family sort out their own problems back home. He loves music and joking and is unfazed by the bullies, slowly beginning to win the class round. He helps Indigo to challenge his fears, and in doing so is absorbed into the crazy Casson family and finds some answers of his own. Rose adores him and is determined to help him get the guitar he's been eyeing in the local music shop - but her attempts to help end in disaster, leaving only one way out: Daddy needs to come back from London to the home (and wife) he's been neglecting. Rose couldn't have an ulterior motive, could she?

Product Description


Another winning title from the inimitable Hilary McKay. (Publishing News)

Hilary McKay's strength lies in her understanding of young people and her ability to evoke them very simply.' (The Guardian)

As funny and compelling as her Whitbread-winning Saffy's Angel... The unpatronising, open, thought-provoking ending leaves us eager for more. Definitely a book to curl up with and enjoy in one single sitting. (Lesley Agnew, The Bookseller)

Book Description

It's two years since Saffy found her angel and now her brother Indigo, the only boy in the Casson family, has a quest of his own. He's helped by his new school pal and, of course, by Rose, his ever-resourceful younger sister. The eagerly-awaited sequel to the award-winning Saffy's Angel.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Book 6 April 2010
A Kid's Review
I am eleven (and not very keen on reading)I have read this book seven times and it is great! To me it is one of Hilary McKays best (pobably my favorite book ever). I think in her books you grow to love the characters. Personally my favorite is Rose but I love them all! You just can't stop reading it. I think it is worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love the Cassons! 2 April 2009
My 9 year old daughter got 'Saffys Angel' from the school library and we loved it so much we've read the rest of the series. These books are about the ups and downs of the Casson family. This book is about Indigo, the only boy in the family. Its about friends and bullying mainly but it's not at all heavy. The Cassons have problems but they are dealt with. Our favourite character is Rose. By the end of any of the books the reader (and her mother) are left smiling and wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars epic 27 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Well my library teacher read Saffy's angel to us ages ago when I was in prep school and I loved it, I thought rose was really funny and that Eve's way of living was strange, I also loved the way Caddy called Michael 'Darling Michael'. So when I was stuck for a book to read on holiday I looked it up ,to find that there was a whole series of these books, so I started reading Indigo star right away. It was just as I expected it to be only better. I loved the ending and the way that everything turned out how it shoud, Tom going back to America, the gang was split up so they did no more harm, Tom got that black guitar, Rose learned to love Bill and Saffy and Sarah found a way for Indigo to visit Tom in america without flying (even though it might of used her parents in some unforgiving ways)
