Indigo s Star is the second book in the Casson family series and is of a companion novel than a proper seuel to Saffy s Angel although it could be read as stand alone but to do so would deprive you of the delights of that first book Believe me you don t want that to happenThis particular entry focuses on Indigo the sole boy in the family as he is about to go back to school after a long illness It soon emerges that before getting ill Indigo was being bullied at school Only his youngest sister Permanent Rose knows what happens and they are both understandably anxious about his returning to school But there is a new student Tom from America who gets the unwanted attention away from Indigo Ultimately the two become friends with a little help from RoseI say that the novel focus on Indigo but this is not uite correct as it has become clear to me that this is an ensemble series As such as Indigo and Tom become fast friends the entire Casson family share the stoplight too Caddy now in college is still entangled with former driving instructor Michael but keeps coming back home with potential new boyfriends ore are they Saffron and her best friend Sarah organise to take care of both Indigo and Rose as the latter is desperately trying to get their increasingly absent father s attentionBack when I reviewed Saffy s Angel I said how that book had made me think of the way that literature can engage meaningfully and smartly with difficult topics Here there is bullying as well as complicity and silence absent minded parenting as well as absent for real parenting divorce and moving on and how these affect children As an adult it is so easy to forget how seemingly simple things can torment children and this book reminded me of that by portraying this in a very compassionate wayThe book is also interspersed with the most hilarious letters from Rose to Bill They provide her own version of everything that is happening in their lives but with her choosing to stress or reinforce the elements she feels will scare Bill into coming back home Darling Daddy This is Rose So flames went all up the kitchen wall Saffron called the fire brigade and the police came too to see if it was a trick and the police woman said to Saffron Here You Are Again because of when I got lost having my glasses checked But I was with Tom whose grandmother is a witch on top of the highest place in town Love Rose In the relationship between Rose and her father is where I think Indigo s Star is at the height of its cleverness meets heartfelt because of course Rose s letters are an indirect plea for help that are often sadly ignored by Bill Until he comes through at Rose s greatest time of need in that very moment Rose understands her father completely and sees both the good and the bad in him It is a very special and powerful moment in the story when she fully sees Bill and understands he uite possibly will never truly understand her Which is heartbreaking in itself but all the so when Rose is clearly the artistic child of the family something that she could truly share with her artist father but can tSpeaking of artistic tendencies it is awesome to see how art emotion and family intertwine here This is true when it comes to Tom and Indigo playing the guitar and how music connects them both or how Eve becomes engaged with their community and especially how Rose paints the picture of her family on the kitchen wall and as the story progresses so do the painting with new additions like Sarah and Tom and with Bill always on the outskirtsThis idea of a fluid family that embraces new members as they come along is the core of these books with the understanding that blood ties are important but so are the ties of friendship and true understanding and bonding There are all sorts of families Tom s grandmother had remarked and over the following few weeks Tom became part of the Casson family as Micheal and Sarah and Derek from the camp had done before him He immediately discovered that being a member of the family was very different from being a welcome friend If you were a Casson family member for example and Eve drifted in from the shed asking Food Any ideas Or shall we not bother then you either joined in the search of the kitchen cupboards or counted the money in the housekeeping jam jar and calculated how many pizzas you could afford Also if you were a family member you took care of Rose helped with homework Saffron and Sarah were very strict about homework unloaded the washing machine learned to fold up Sarah s wheelchair hunted for car keys and kept up the hopeful theory that in the event of a crisis Bill Casson would disengage himself from his artistic life in London and rush home to help Finally I also love how there are no strict gender roles here how all the members of the family have interests that are not dependent on their gender and how they are all eually protective emotive and active participants on the Casson comfort machineIndigo s Star is funny moving and thoughtful featuring amazingly subtle complex and clever writing This is becoming one of the best Middle Grade series I have ever read
