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 . . .

Reviews of Scarlett
  • Kate, age 12

    I LOVED Scarlett for a few reasons the first is because it's set in
    Ireland (i live in Ireland)I think there are not enough books set in
    Ireland but i don't know why because Ireland's a great country! The book
    isn't set where i, live i live in Dublin (the capital)But at least it's
    set here!I really wish someone would write a good bok set in Dublin!
    Thank you Cathy for writing about Ireland!
    The second reason i loved it is because the storyline was really good
    and i just REALLY loved the book!!!
    I recently read sundae girl and i felt sorry for Jude and i thought it
    was quite sad! I really love all your books and i don't have a favourite
    but i really loved Scarlett and i REALLY hope authors like Cathy Cassidy
    will start writing books set in Ireland!!!!! THANKS AGAIN

  • Sarah B, age 11

    This is Cathy's best book yet!
    I kept on saying to myself
    "OK, I'll stop reading when I finish this page" but I couldn't put the
    book down!
    Cathy describes Kian so
    magical,so romantic that I
    could fall in love with him
    myself.You are DEFINITLY my
    fav author and I hope you
    write more of these brilliant
    books in future!

  • Cherrie, age 11

    I have read all your books and I think Scarlett is really cool. I love it how she's such a rebel though she softens slightly as the book goes on. This book rocks!

    This book is awesome, once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. I'm inspired by how mysterious Kian is.

  • 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!!

  • Kelly, age 12

  • Jemma, age 13

    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!!!

I could go on!) we’ve also been having a few problems with spam comments – it’s probably just my mental sisters messing about…

But ANYWAY, to post your comment, simply put my first name (Coco) in the box below!

Lots of love,
