Product Description


Cathy Cassidy's insight into teenage thinking is pin-point sharp while her light tone makes [her stories]


(Julia Eccleshare )

Touching, tender and unforgettable. (The Guardian )

Indigo Blue is so good that I finished it in two days because once I started reading the first page I couldn't put it down! (JoJo, age 11 )

Product Description

Indigo Blue by Cathy Cassidy is a powerful, tender novel for girls aged 9+

'I need a seriously brilliant daydream . . . because everything is far from OK . . .'

When Indigo's mum announces that they're moving - just Indie, Mum and baby Misti - Indie doesn't understand. Why the hurry? Where are they going? Will her best friend, Jo, still be there for her?

In a dingy old flat with a grumpy neighbour, no heating and only biscuits to eat, Indie begins to realize that her mum's got a reason for running away - a secret no one can admit . . .

Will Indigo choose her family or her friends?

'Touching, tender and unforgettable' - Guardian

'Cassidy's characters have real heart' - Sunday Telegraph

'Cathy Cassidy . . . is way better than Jacqueline Wilson' - Courtney, aged 10


Cathy Cassidy wrote her first picture book for her little brother when she was eight or nine and has been writing fabulous stories ever since. Cathy is the bestselling author of Dizzy, Driftwood, Indigo Blue, Scarlett, Sundae Girl, Lucky Star, Gingersnaps and Angel Cake. The Chocolate Box Girls is a sumptuous series starring sassy sisters, super-cool boys and one of Cathy's biggest loves - chocolate. Cathy lives in Scotland with her family and of all the jobs she's had, writing has to be the best - it's the perfect excuse to daydream, after all!

5.0 out of 5 stars love it, buy it! 8 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Indigo blue is a really touching book about indie and her little sister who are brought up by their disorganised but caring mum, and trying to make a new life away from their violent dad. I have never read a book which portrays girls' friendships in such a real and sensitive way. It's so sad when Indie seems to be abandonned by her best friend. It makes her home situation seem all the worse. There are parts where you want to cry, and bits where you're holding your breath, wanting everything to work out for Indie. It's a great book, I absolutely loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Book 8 Mar 2005
By AccioDH
This book is extremely good. It talks about a girl called Indigo (Indie) whose mother, after having an arguement with her boyfriend, runs away from him, taking Indigo and Indie's sister with her. They move to a dingy old flat with only biscuits to eat. Indie finds that when she goes to school her best friend Jo has gone off with a girl called Aisha. She has to deal with that, while her mum isn't able to cope. For the tryouts of the play, Indigo and Aisha get a really good part, which they share. Jo gets jealous and storms off. Aisha and Indie become friends. And even though Indie's mum has the impression that blue is her lucky colour, it doesn't seem to be doing much. Indie is really worried: if Max comes back to Mum then there'll be big trouble....
I loved this book! It was amazing and the storyline was great! Cathy Cassidy should continue writing books forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars The AMAZING, the FABULOUS, Indigo Blue! 15 Sep 2007
Indigo Blue is a heart warming, original book by an original author. It is an imaginative situation about Indigo - a young teen girl - who's mum is in violent relationship with her new fella - Max. Indigo has no idea; Max always seemed to be so sweet to her and baby Misti.

Indigo is mums lucky color. She loves blue jewels and all the walls in her house are painted Indigo blue. Indigo has a good friend called Jo. Somehow, Jo knows that something is wrong at home but she thinks Indigo might get upset.

One morning Indigo wakes up and hears shouting and smashing downstairs and she gets ready for school. She looks at her mum and can tell she is in pain by all the bruises. Before she heads off for school her mum commands her to wait outside the school gates but something was very wrong...

Cathy Cassidy is the new Jacqueline Wilson!!!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave indigo blue a rating of 5 star rating because, it was so gripping and made me want to read on. I loved how indigo, misty and the mum, meet someone really nice who they make friends with, and how they face problems like trying to make a living and trying not to bump into Max and to top it all of, indigo is also trying to keep her friendship with Jo together. I loved the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A powerful, hard-hitting novel 3 Mar 2013
By mbc
Format:Kindle Edition
After her first sucess with the bestselling novel Dizzy, Cathy Cassidy has done it again with Indigo Blue, arguably one of her best so far.
11 year old Indigo loves to daydream. But when she, her mum and babysister Misti suddenly leave home and mum's boyfriend Max, her happy world of daydreams comes crashing down. Before she knows it, she's trapped in a dinghy basement flat with a grumpy neighbour and no heating. Why would mum make them move to such a terrible place? As her whole world crumbles beneath her, Indigo realizes that her mum has a secret for running away...
This book was unputdownable. It was a little bit dragged out at some points and could probably been a lot shorter, but the final chapters were swift and gripping. Overall, a tear-wrenching story about family and friendship that captures the heartand engages the mind. Give Cathy Cassidy a big round of applause!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cathy Does It Again 12 April 2014
By Been
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is very emotional, but also very thoughtfully crafted. If situations like the ones in the book have or are happening to you, it is easy to relate to and can help you get through the stages. Other than that, though, brilliant, interesting and very imaginative! I'd say buy it, it's worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indigo Blue 14 Jan 2012
By Kate
Format:Kindle Edition
I LOVED this book! I would recommend it for ages 7-14ish. It is funny and interesting, and once you start it you can't set it down. All of Cathy Cassidy's books are great, and I recommend them all 7-14, apart from the Daizy Star series which would be about 5-10. It is fantastic, and if you haven't already read this book, try it! It's really good!
