45. Forever Rose by Hilary McKay

            Rose Casson, the youngest in the eccentric Casson family, is struggling with change as we begin this J-level novel.  Exciting things have happened in her life but everyone is growing up and going away.  Rose is quite lonely.  Until, David and his drums show up, her friend Molly decides not to be boring anymore, and Caddy begins to call more frequently.  As Rose deals with her siblings growing up and becoming more independent and her mother being ill she learns that even in lonely times, with catastrophes and disasters, good things can happen.  This novel is a great cap for the four previous books written about the Casson family.  This book is not necessarily a part of the series, but is a definite continuation of Rose’s growth in life.
