Forever Rose

Forever Rose by Hilary McKay
Rose Casson and her unconventional family are back in McKay's fifth novel chronicling the family's adventures. This book finds Rose a bit lonely for her family. Her father is in London, her mom is spending all her time in the shed (trying to get over a cold and finish her commissioned paintings), one sister has gone off and will not tell the family where she went, and the rest of her siblings are busy living their lives. To make matters worse, Rose and her friends are trapped at school with an awful teacher who cancels Christmas. Rose solves the mystery of her sister's whereabouts when she joins her friend Molly in a crazy plot to spend the night at the zoo.
