Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Athena | 2/13/2014

    " This is the second book about the dysfunctional, but extremely real, Casson family. I find Mckay's books refreshing, and I always laugh at how real the situations the characters find themselves in are. This is my favorite book by Mckay, told through the eyes of Indigo, the only boy of the Casson children, as he learns to deal with bullies, and with friends. "

    " Found this one in our library --I didn't even know it existed. Love the series. "

    " Has it's bad parts... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandy Painter | 1/27/2014

    " There is a lot going on in this novel and many characters, but McKay juggled it well. It is never too much. All of the Cassons, Sarah, and Michael are back in this volume. Tom, a new character, joins the melee'. He is a friend of both and Indigo and Rose, who has family issues of his own. Rose rather annoyed me in the first book, but it in this one I enjoyed her more. I wanted to scoop her up and hug her. I also wanted to throttle the parents at several points (a recurring theme). My favorite part of this book was Indigo though. It was wonderful watching him grow and stretch himself. This did seem to be more of a Rose story overall though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/23/2014

    " One of my favourite books! Very exciting and entertaining! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Brown | 1/19/2014

    " Excellent follow-up to Saffy's Angel. Rose is still my favorite of the Cassons, but Indigo is my second-favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendall | 12/19/2013

    " Good book. Read one before it first, as in all cases. I am going to read the next books in the series about this family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sabrina | 10/31/2013

    " Read awhile ago...but it was better than the first! Great story about bullying and learning to overcome that and friendship. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikayla | 5/12/2013

    " I loved rose, indigo, eve, tom, and even Bill Casson. Great book =). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 1/30/2013

    " Good and funny, while teaching a valuable lesson about friendship, blah, blah, blah, my mom is reading this over my shoulder. But it was a good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maureen E | 1/11/2013

    " Second Casson book. I did like it, especially Michael and Caddy, and Tom. [Nov. 2010] "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 10/25/2012

    " I grow more and more impressed by Hilary McKay. The Casson family, and the crew they pull into their orbit, are so well-drawn, so convincing and memorable, so endearing and obviously loved by their creator, that it's sad when any book ends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly Magro | 7/22/2012

    " Everything in Hilary McKay's series about the Casson family is unbelievably funny and wonderful and her characters will completely steal your heart, regardless of your age. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessy | 5/11/2012

    " it was good, but it was really confusing. not one of my best choices... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rose Marie | 2/23/2012

    " Crazy British family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 11/11/2011

    " This is the second book in the Casson family series. I loved the second half of this book. Don't get me wrong, the first half was great, but the second half made me laugh and cry with its wonderfulness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 10/18/2011

    " A generally sweet story about a large family and a few troubles they help a friend through. I would recommend it to fans of the Penderwick chapter books (by Jeanne Birdsall) who have grown up a bit and are ready for a story with bullies and a small amount of violence in it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valerie Njoku | 8/8/2011

    " Thi sis a book I can't really remember "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joni | 7/28/2011

    " I love this book so much. It's funny, real-life and so true. You can emaphise with every single character in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/2/2011

    " One of my favourite books! Very exciting and entertaining! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janine | 3/17/2011

    " Excellent - such a great series. Would be good for MS. Quirky British family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikayla | 12/12/2010

    " I loved rose, indigo, eve, tom, and even Bill Casson. Great book =). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/6/2010

    " Not quite as charming as the first,though I enjoyed reading it. I really liked Indigo and loved Rose, but the family disfunctionality was more painful and annoying than Saffy's Angel--because it was pushed more to the foreground. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mordena | 7/28/2010

    " Hmm, I wanted love this as much as Saffy's Angel, but didn't. I think I found Rose a little precious, and this is mostly Rose's book, despite the title. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marriah | 6/4/2010

    " Not a good as the first, but almost. Rose was more developed in this one and more of a main character. Indigo definitely grew and although this book was named after him it seemed more about Caddy, Rose, Eve and Bill. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 5/4/2010

    " I'm on page 208 and loving it!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 11/9/2009

    " Loved book number two in the Casson Family series. I can't decide if I want to be a Casson or a Penderwick. I did listen to this one and it was very good, except the actress (who is british) had a difficult time with an american accent. Can't wait to read number three! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 8/24/2009

    " The seiries as a whole is quite girly, but this book is an expection.Indigo's Star is the best of the seiries. "
