Funny, Different, but overall GREAT!
Now I found this book at one of my school's book bananzas where you can buy old books. I thought it was kind of childish so I was planning to give it to my little sister. When I was going to give it to her she asked me if I could read it to her, so I agreed. We read it together and enjoyed it. I thought it was a great book to share with someone younger. The book was funny and I liked how the narrarator went from sibling to sibling.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The Casson Family is so much fun!
Hilary McKay does not disappoint as she gives voice to our beloved Cassons once again. Here, each chapter is devoted to a different Casson (Rose, Caddy, Indigo, Saffron...) and their narratives are hilarious, endearing, and totally readable over and over again!Was this review helpful?

Gotta LOVE the Casson Family!
In the fourth novel in the series, oldest child Cadium Gold, aka Caddy, is off to get married! As if her household isn't hectic enough! If you love the Casson family, don't give up on the series! Read this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I recommended the rest of the series. I also suggested "Sand Dollar Summer", because it has realistic adventures and family drama, just like this series.

Chaos, Crazyness, and Love
The Casson family is back and this time Caddy is in danger of marrying the wrong man in Hillary McKay¿s fourth installment of her fictional Casson family series, Caddy Ever After. Caddy, the oldest child in the family, has broken her engagement with Michael and is now engaged to marry Alex, a serious animal photographer who only cares about his work. Rose, the youngest of the family, desperately despises Alex and wants to stop the wedding. Meanwhile, she has joined a ghost club! Indigo, the only boy in the family, competes with Oscar to see who can bring the most CDs to the Valentines Day dance. Saffy, the middle sister, goes on a date with Oscar to a spooky graveyard. Oscar gives her a haunted balloon which may cost Saffy her best friend¿s life. Will Rose be able to stop the wedding? In this heartwarming teen drama, Caddy¿s wedding plans create chaos for the Casson family. In my opinion Caddy Ever After is the second best book in the Casson Family series (the best is Saffy¿s Angel). I love how McKay creates a family full of characters that come to life. At some points in the book I felt joyous, at other times I experienced great sorrow. McKay made a good choice to write her book in 3rd person because I knew what each character was thinking which gave me a deeper understanding of them. McKay really made me feel passionate about the characters and as I read on I felt more connected to each one. I especially related to Caddy, because she is the oldest in the family (like me), we have both made difficult choices in our lives, and we have interests in art. This book was an extreme page turner that I could not put down. I would recommend it to any teen who loves books about chaotic but loving families.Was this review helpful?
