Product Description

At home, kind-hearted dreamer Indigo is the one who holds the Casson family together, cooking meals and remembering to check up on the youngest, Rose. At school, things aren’t quite so simple. David, the horrible school bully, is making his life miserable… until a new boy, Tom, steps off a plane from America. Guitar-playing joker Tom is breezy, bold, easy-going and brave. He doesn’t care what anyone says about him, least of all the bullies. Soon Tom and Indigo are best friends and comrades in arms… and fierce little Rose adores Tom too. But the breath of fresh air that Tom breathes into Indigo’s life is about to have totally unexpected consequences…

“As funny and compelling as her Whitbread-winning SAFFY’S ANGEL … Definitely a book to curl up with and enjoy in one single sitting.” The Bookseller

Hilary McKay

Hilary McKay was born in Boston, Lincolnshire and is the eldest of four girls. From a very early age she read voraciously and grew up in a household of readers. Hilary says of herself as a child “I anaesthetised myself against the big bad world with large doses of literature. The local library was as familiar to me as my own home.”

After reading Botany and Zoology at St. Andrew’s University Hilary then went on to work as a biochemist in an Analysis Department. Hilary enjoyed the work but at the same time had a burning desire to write. After the birth of her two children, Hilary wanted to devote more time to bringing up her children and writing so decided to leave her job.

One of the best things about being a writer, says Hilary, is receiving letters from children. She wishes that she had written to authors as a child, but it never occurred to her to contact them!

Hilary has written many books but is probably best known for the award-winning Casson family series.

Hilary now lives in a small village in Derbyshire with her family. When not writing Hilary loves walking, reading, and having friends to stay.
