Product description

Go back in time – to when Caddy is twelve. Not yet the golden goddess of later years, she’s grappling with school, best friends, first boyfriends… and the surprising arrival of a baby, Permanent Rose, who has come into the world a little sooner than expected. While Rose lies in critical condition in hospital, life goes on in the topsy-turvy Casson household. But as the oldest of the Casson kids, how will Cadmium Gold cope with the big changes ahead? Hilary McKay revisits the Casson family, but this time with a difference, in this latest touching and brilliant novel from a wonderful series.

“Glorious novel from a true master of her craft.” Independent

“A triumph of humour, emotion and realism.” Daily Mail

“Caddy’s world is saturated with colour, style and romance.” Daily Telegraph

“You won’t find a more endearing, eccentric, maddening and marvellously warm family.” The Ultimate Book Guide
