Product Description

Review

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

(Julia Eccleshare Lovereading4kids.co.uk)

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)

Format: Paperback
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.

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!

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.

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!

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!!!

Recently, I embarked on a re-reading the-classics-from-my-childhood-and-tween-years journey, and it could not be complete without the inclusion of Cathy Cassidy's books. Well, I've read them all now, and the last one was 'Indigo Blue'.
Out of all of Cathy's books, this one is probably the 'youngest'. What I mean by that is, it is aimed at older children, I would say, rather than almost teenagers.

Indigo's life has been turned upside down. The fighting at home has gotten worse, and Mum's had enough.
Only, Indigo doesn't quite realise how serious the situation is, and is therefore confused when she is uprooted, and forced to flee the house with her mum and little sister, Misti.
The new flat is damp, smelly and miserable- there is never enough food to eat, they're miles away from all their friends, and mum seems to be half a world away.
And Indigo has problems of her own. She's got a whole heap of secrets locked away inside, and her best friend is slowly drifting away from her. And it turns out that looking after mum and Misti is a full time job.
Can hot chocolate with marshmallows, daydreams, and new friend with strawberry laces make everything okay again?

I'm not sure what it was, but I found myself extremely bored when reading this book, and had to force myself to pick it up and get it finished.
Perhaps it was because I didn't really get into the storyline, or that I felt emotionally detached from all the characters.
Or maybe it was simply because I've read it quite a few times before. Whatever the reason, it was just a very tedious read.

Throughout my Cathy Cassidy-a-thon, my pet peeve has been her age misjudgement.
