Hilary McKay ´ 2 Summary

Read µ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Hilary McKay Caddy's World Download ✓ 102 Ds first boyfriends younger siblings and the unexpected arrival of one baby Permanent Rose who has arrived in the world a little soo. I love preuels I love the self consciousness of them how they play with reader knowledge and expectations I didn t expect to like this one so much and honestly in itself it was really only a four It was McKay s brilliant handling of this as a preuel to the Casson novels that bumped it to a five that and how she made me finally like CaddyI ve never cared for Caddy She s sort of airheaded in some ways like her mother Eve but unlike Eve I get the sense that Caddy is doing it on purpose Caddy Ever After didn t do anything to change my impression but then how could it since Caddy was practically Sir Not Appearing In This Book Caddy s World is set six years before Saffy s Angel the year that Rose is born and Caddy is twelve It was strange to see Caddy who previously seemed so free of connections to be part of a tightly knit gaggle of girls who ve been friends since they were four and five Unlike the other girls who all have their own identities ie Alison who hates everyone Caddy s title bravest of the brave is in Caddy s mind an honorary title since she isn t brave about anything but spiders which to her aren t scary at allCaddy s braveness becomes evident though as she turns out to be the one who has to face reality for everyone else Whether it s being the first of the friends to admit that their lives are changing or telling her friends that they ve all been dumped by their communal boyfriend or facing the fact that her new baby sister may not survive Caddy s bravery is something that s only obvious to everyone but herself The most interesting example of this is when Caddy risks her own life to pull her friend Ruby out of the path of a speeding truck because the true act of bravery is that she immediately pushes Ruby into the path of a metaphorical truck Ruby s avoided throughout the book namely Ruby s admission to an elite school that will take her away from her friends Caddy than once risks her friends hating her when she makes them face up to the fears they ve been avoiding and that s real braveryI loved Caddy s friends too they re all different and all seem so very twelve years old Beth s obsession with her size and conseuent descent into anorexia and bulimia seem particularly well characterized There s never a sense of this becoming a problem novel because Beth s mental state makes all her choices seem obvious if wrong Ruby s decision to fail rather than be accepted to her elite school something it s clear she would like if she didn t have to leave her friends behind also makes a certain twelve year old sense but what s beautiful is the hints that all the adults in her life understand perfectly what she s doing and are willing to give her space to work out her problems And Alison she of the brilliant hair and exotic makeup has a wonderful internal life that even her friends don t suspectWhich leads me to another thing I love about this book and about the Casson stories in general adults are not bumbling idiots but just grown up versions of the children who are the protagonists Alison s greatest rebellion is met by the head of school telling her outright that she knows the real Alison is the opposite of the Alison who dyes her hair magenta that illusory Alison and Alison is stunned to realize it s true She s even stunned when the head rather than ordering her home until she s dyed it a normal color just tells her to tie it back and keep it out of the way How much better a reaction than yelling and tears and again perfectly believableFinally I think it s amazing that even though this is a preuel and we know that Permanent Rose comes through just fine Caddy s tension and fear about the fate of the firework baby lying there in the hospital pierced with tubes feels very real And Rose s final line in the epilogue that happens six years later makes for a perfect ending The Windmill of Nowhere Crackers novels that bumped it to a five that and how she made me finally like CaddyI ve Flappers and Philosophers never

Caddy's World

Read µ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Hilary McKay Caddy's World Download ✓ 102 Ner than expected While baby Rose lies in critical condition in hospital life goes on in the unpredictable colourful Casson househol. Hilarious and moving as always I nearly blubbed every time Beth s outgrown pony was mentioned and the birth of unnamed very premature Rose tied me up in knots even though I knew perfectly well how it turned out Tiny Saffy and Indigo are brilliantThere s a bit of a peculiar thing where it s set in 1996 five years before Saffy s Angel but the cultural referents Lemony Snicket grandparents who use Photoshop are from 2011 Is this a thing in kids books I found it jarring a bit like reading Jill books in recent reprints with prices recalculated for decimal currency and inflation

Read µ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Hilary McKay Caddy's World Download ✓ 102 Hilary McKay revisits the Casson family but this time with a difference Go back in time Caddy is 12 grappling with school best frien. This is a preuel and structured as such meaning I think it d be best to read the rest of the series before this one though that s a soft recommendation as it d stand well enough on its ownCaddy has been kind of a flighty ethereal presence in the other books and it has been hard to feel attached to her as a result So it is uite the achievement that with this book I actually came to like her and to understand her as than just a fickle airhead It does so by filling in the gaps and giving us a glimpse into a very formative few months for her when Rose is born so fragile and impermanent Indeed even impressive is that McKay managed this one without Rose as the leavening viewpoint character she has been in the other novels having just been born and allCaddy s world is shuffled uite thoroughly in these months as her friends who have been inseparable since they started grade school begin finding their separate paths The image Caddy has of that time is of the world being spun on the finger of a genie and it s an apt metaphor Twelve is a tumultuous age as people begin getting a glimpse of who they can or want to be and when your friends are so different the cracks will inevitably begin to show This is very upsetting for Caddy and she has to draw on all her resources to weather the storm her world has becomeLike some of the other books this one explores the search for stability in the midst of chaos and of building a foundation and shelter for those who need it It also explores the necessity and benefits of change and accommodation and the ultimate disruption of stagnation McKay has a light touch for such serious topics though and remains entertaining with just a touch of domestic horror throughoutI felt a little bit that inventing a posse of three friends that were inseparable even though this is the first we ve heard of them was a bit of a cheat though While the events of the book explain somewhat why that we haven t heard of them ie why they might have gone their separate ways with a little hand waving for why we haven t heard of them before it doesn t stand up well to scrutiny It is after all a preuel though so some liberties should be expectedIn all I liked the book though the four stars is a bit on the generous side It was fun to revisit the Cassons and young Indy and Saffy are a hoot Plus it s a relief to have an excuse to finally like Caddy
