Waiting on Wednesday-- Caddy's World, by Hilary McKay

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.

  1. Saffy's Angel
  2. Indigo's Star
  3. Permanent Rose
  4. Caddy Ever After
  5. Forever Rose
I'm utterly thrilled that there is a new book in the series. By happy chance, it's my little sister's birthday, so I can order it from the UK with a clear conscience, and since I'll be seeing her when I go down to Book Expo America I'll be able to read it!

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.

  1. That sounds neat! I've never heard of them. ARe they for younger readers?

    Paranormal Wasteland's pick:

  2. I haven't heard of this series but we have them at our library. I'll have to check them out!

  3. Oh, I want it! One of my favorite series of all time! Thanks for the heads-up.

  4. Want, want, want. Will have to buy because I own the rest. YAY!

  5. Never heard of this series, sounds good.

  6. I just read Indigo's Star last week. I guess I better finish the rest of the series ASAP.

  7. Thanks for stopping by, all.

    Those of you who haven't read these yet--they are funny, poingnant, very English family stories both for kids, and for grown-ups like me and Kate and Melissa and Brandy!

  8. Absolutely wonderful that there's one more Casson family story. I have never recovered from falling in love with them.
