Permanent Roseby Hilary McKay
It's a long hot summer - to Permanent Rose it seems never ending. Rose misses Tom, Indigo's friend who went back to America, and new friend David is no replacement. Caddy's fiancee, Michael, tries to cheer her up by delivering a rose every day, but that just provides temporary relief. What with Daddy leaving her mother Eve for younger model Samantha, Caddy getting cold feet, and adoptive sister Saffron deciding to find her real father, no one seems to have time to come to Rose's rescue. But Rose is determined, and in her heart of hearts is sure she will find Tom again - but what else will she find on the way?

this book is alsome it is the and best book ever. i think this book is so good everyone shoule read it. iread it 8 times and i loved it so i think everyone should read it
In the 3rd story about the Casson family, you get to know the creative baby of the family, Permanent Rose. Yes, her name is Permanent Rose, but people call her Rose. She is free spirited and headstrong. She paints a huge wall, letting her artistic talent flow. I love the Casson family. Rose is awesome! I recommended "Sand Dollar Summer", because it has family conflicts and adventure, just like this series.
This book is so fantastic. You really must read it. You really feel what the characters are feeling, and it's just, well, really, really, good. Read it as soon as you get the chance!!
