Can wild child Scarlett ever settle down?

'I'll be different, I won't break the rules . . . I promise'

Scarlett has got herself in trouble so often; her Mum's no longer believes her promises. Sent off to stay with Dad, the message is behave or else!

Can Scarlett mend her ways or will she die of boredom? Perhaps gorgeous and mysterious local boy Kian can supply some of the answers . . .

  • K8, age 10

    u should defineitely HAVE 2 read scarllett it ROCKS!! it about a girl called scarrlet (note the title!!) who is always in trouble at school and forever out side the headmistresses office 4 inappropriate behaveour or being pack off to some distant uncle or auntie. now she has gone too far and her mum has had enough. (surprise surprise!!) now it's time 4 scarllett 2 ventoure out into the world. it's time to meet AND stay with... dad. now u can obviously guess, scalletts dad is'nt likely to approve of her tomato ketchup coloured hair, attitude problem and not-so-perfect school record. but u will find later in the book that maybe stayin at dad's with his new family (pregnant wife and not-so-angelic little 6(?) year old) may not be as boring 4 scarlett as she thought. i think i've told you enough already.
    love,peace and chocolate, K8* p.s. u rock cathy!!

    This book was absolutely brilliant!!! I know all about dad's living in a
    different country and I thought Cathy Cassidy captured the feelings,
    thoughts and moods well. Kian sounds well fit!!!

  • Helen, age 13

    I love the book Scarlett so much! I have had it for about two months and have read it seven times! I love how you describe everything so well. You paint a total picture in the mind and the whole book is magical. I have also read Indigo Blue, Dizzy, and Driftwood, and can't wait to get my hands on Sundae Girl. I think you're a brilliant author and I want to be just like you when I grow up. I think Scarlett has to be my favourite of all your books, as it is so magical.

    Scarlett is a good book for ages from 8-100 it shows you the feeling for
