When Saffron was eight, and had at last learned to read, she hunted slowly through the color chart pinned up on the kitchen wall. (from the first line)
Cadmium, Saffron, Indigo, and Rose are as colorful as the paint chart that inspired their names, but when Saffron finds that her name is not on the chart, she discovers that she has been adopted. This is the start of her hilarious and adventurous search for a stone angel that she remembers from her dreams. How Saffy discovers what her angel is, with the help of an energetic new friend, lies at the heart of this enchanting story. Unforgettable characters come alive in often deeply humorous and always absorbing events to make a book to be treasured for a long, long time.
From the Publisher:
Wondering why she is the only child in the family who hasn't been named after a color, Saffron discovers that she is adopted and sets out to find the special stone angel that she remembers from her childhood, while her sisters Indigo, Cadmium, and Rose deal with their own problems, in a heartwarming and hilarious tale of an unforgettable family. Jr Lib Guild. An ALA Notable Children's Book. Reprint.
Annotation:
Saffron, the second of four children in the colorfully named Casson family (her siblings are Cadmium, Indigo, and Rose) is shocked to discover that she is not the natural daughter of the woman she has always known as her mom. Saffron's birth mother, the twin sister of the woman who has raised her, was killed in a car accident when Saffron was a baby. As Saffron attempts to adapt to this information, she is dealt another harsh blow when her beloved grandfather dies. An item bequeathed to her by her grandfather sets Saffron on an adventure which eventually connects her with her own past. Named one of the Best Children's Books 2002 by Publishers Weekly.
