Indigo is not looking forward to going back to school.  He's been out ill for so long, he's put his school problems to the back of his mind.  How could anyone forget that big red headed bully who flushed Indigo's head down the toilet?  Even Indigo's sisters are worried about his return to school.  His 8 year old sister Rose seems to be more worried than Indigo himself.  And his older sister Saffy threatens the bullies if they lay a hand on him.  He should be happy that the new kid from America is now the prime target for the gang of bullies.  But as Indigo gets to know Tom, they become fast friends.  Those of you who loved McKay's book Saffy's Angel will delight in the further adventures of the Casson family.
