The book I'm most anxiously waiting for this week is Caddy's World, by Hilary McKay; when I get a hold of it, I will drop everything else and read!
From Goodreads: "Hilary McKay revisits the Casson family, but this time with a difference ... Go back in time ...Caddy is 12, grappling with school, best friends, first boyfriends, younger siblings and the unexpected arrival of one baby Permanent Rose who has arrived in the world a little sooner than expected. While baby Rose lies in critical condition in hospital, life goes on in the unpredictable, colourful Casson household."
It comes out in the UK tomorrow!
I love the Casson family, whose intricate, detail-rich lives McKay has explored in a five book series beginning with Saffy's Angel.
- Saffy's Angel
- Indigo's Star
- Permanent Rose
- Caddy Ever After
- Forever Rose
Speaking of which--if anyone else wants to order this through the Book Depository (where it's currently priced at $13.28, with free shipping), I'd be mighty pleased. At sixty six cents per book, if as few as 200 people did so (in my dreams), I will have earned more than enough to cover my Book Expo America/Book Blogger Convention registration costs.* The Book Depository link is off in the sidebar. Thanks.
*technically any commissions go to my library, but since most of the books I get through blogging end up there anyway, I think in this case it's fair to use the money (if there should be any money) for this worthy cause.
