Publisher Comments:

Love is in the air for the Casson family! Four hilarious, endearing tales unfold as Rose, Indigo, Saffy, and Caddy each tell their intertwining stories. Rose begins by showing how she does special with her Valentine's card for Tom in New York. Not to be outdone, Indigo has his own surprise in store for the Valentine,s Day disco at school. For her part, Saffy has an unusual date in a very, very dark graveyard, and is haunted by a balloon that almost costs her her best friend. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; But it is Caddy who dares everything — as she tells all about love at first sight when you have found the Real Thing. Unfortunately the Real Thing is not darling Michael. What is Rose going to do?

Review:

"The four engaging Casson offspring in turn contribute their voices to this enchanting follow-up to Saffy's Angel, Indigo's Star and Permanent Rose. Because of its episodic format, the book is perhaps best suited to fans of the series. Outspoken Rose, prone to diverting digressions, muses on the fate of her escaped hamsters, shares her best friend's outrageous tall tales, and describes her brave journey to the backyard shed one stormy night. Earnest Indigo describes Rose's mass-production of Valentine cards and quotes Saffy's derisive comment that Valentines can't be special 'if you send them off in dozens,' to which Rose responds, 'This is how I do special.' When Indigo salvages the near-doomed Valentine's Day dance, he wryly notes, 'This is how I do special.' Down-to-earth Saffy introduces her entertainingly eccentric beau, Oscar, who takes Saffy and Rose for a ride in his Internet-purchased car, which resembles 'an ancient, unhappy, giant toad.' When they run out of gas, Oscar's older brother Alex rescues them. Enter flighty Caddy who, immediately smitten by Alex, decides that he 'is probably the Real Thing at last.' In many ways the soul of the Cassons, Rose fittingly gets the last word. In McKay's hands, even the things that the Cassons might deem wrong with their lives make for a narrative that is just right. Here, as in the past, the author 'does special' quite splendidly. Ages 10-14. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

From the author of "Indigos Star, Permanent Rose," and "Saffys Angel" comes the fourth delightful adventure of the irresistible Casson family.
