Meet Saffy, Indigo, Rose and Caddy Casson. This colourful and hilarious series will make you wish you were part of the family!

It's a long hot, never-ending summer, with no letters for Rose.

Tom went back to America, and Rose hasn't heard from him since. No phone calls, no messages, nothing at all. New friend David, however hard he may be trying, is no replacement.

And home doesn't offer relief either: Dad's left Mum for a young model, Caddy is questioning her imminent wedding and Saffy is trying to find her real father.

Rose is determined to find Tom in New York. But what else will she find on the way?

'So good it almost hurts . . . charming, affectionate and perfectly written' Independent

The first book in the series, Saffy's Angel, won the Whitbread Children's Book Award, and Permanent Rose was shortlisted for the same award, celebrating McKay's talent for conveying the anarchic bedlam of family life.
