||The wildly disorganized, eclectic Casson family is experiencing a typically tumultuous summer. The youngest, Permanent Rose (named after the paint), is miserable because her good friend Tom has returned to America, and hasn't written. Rose's anguish has sent her hilariously into the arms of petty crime. Cassie is obsessing over her engagement to the beautiful Michael, while Sarah is helping Saffy search for her real father. Even Indigo is too focused on a new friend, David, his former bully, to catch wind of Rose's startling new habit. Only David notices, and his clumsy, unwanted help lifts her out of a potential disaster and into fresh discoveries. Following SAFFY'S ANGEL and INDIGO'S STAR, this is the third book about the delightful Casson family.
