Indigo Blue

Will Indigo choose her family or her friends?

'I need a seriously brilliant daydream . . . because everything is far from OK . . .'

When Indigo's mum announces that they're moving - just Indie, Mum and baby Misti - Indie doesn't understand. Why the hurry? Where are they going? Will her best friend, Jo, still be there for her?

In a dingy old flat with a grumpy neighbour, no heating and only biscuits to eat, Indie begins to realize that her mum's got a reason for running away - a secret no one can admit . . .

    Indigo is so brave but keeps lots to her self, shes a bit like her mum becouse she doesn't want people to interfear.

    OMG! I just could NOT get away once I started reading, it was like my hands and eyes were glued to the book. This book was a great combination of romance, sadness, and other stuff. This is my first Cathy Cassidy book I have read, and I am looking forward to reading more of her books!

    I'm still reading this book, but it's a really addictive book. This is my first book of Cathy Cassidy. I wonder what happens next. Quite sad too.

    they should add a little romance, just saying. but beside that i think this book is awsome

  • gwyneth, age 15

    This is my first Cathy Cassidy's book and I've become her huge fan since then. This book is really amazing. It reflects the social issue(domestic violence) in reality.
    The main character Indigo is a 11-year-old girl who lacks confidence. She loves daydreaming because she can control everything in it. It's kind of sad because she's just escaping from reality... But in some ways,she's also brave.She never cries or complains or feel sorry about herself.
    The character Jo is so “real” and I think we're in common (in some ways). For example, both of us have quite a lot of activities after school, we're wealthier than our friends. Sometimes we won't know how our friends feel about that...and they might not feel good about it...
    I really appreciate the spirit of Anna, Indie's mum. She once told Indigo “we don't want handouts”. Although she needs money and support, she doesn't want others to feel sorry for them. Isn't she a great role model?
    I'm 15 now and I read this book when I was 14. I'm always depressed at school, it's not about academic though. I just don't feel right. Sometimes I wonder why the teachers have to be so harsh and so mean. I've learnt “sometimes things get worse before they get better” from this book. The ending is encouraging and I think kids, teens, and even parents can have a look of it. Not just for entertainment, but also to know about how family matters can affect kids.

    I Love Cathy Cassidys book and I love Indigo Blue as well, this was my first book I read from Cathy Cassidy and I loved it. I love all of them and I love how they end happily but not perfect which relates to real life! BUt I relate to Indigo the most because just like her I am daydreamer, to get the bad thoughts away. Love Cathy Cassidy books xxx;)
