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 . . .

    Scarlett is a nice girl with a fierce personality. Scarlett's mum has had enough. Is going to make a fresh start really the WORST thing in the world? This is one of my second favourite CC books after Summer's dream. I don't know what i would do with out Cathy's books. KEEP ON WRITING CATHY!!!!!

    i loved this book soo much it made me cry but at the end i was hapy im glad scarlett got what she wanted.

  • Ariana, age 13

    Well, where do I begin? CC you have truly outdone yourself with this book, I cannot recommend it highly enough. I am a huge book lover but this book (and your other books) are different from any of the hundreds of books I have read. Your books provide hope, comfort and a means of escape from our hectic everyday lives. I would like to say a huge thank you for writing these books, these past few years have not been easy for me but your books gave me strength in knowledge that I was not alone, that other people were going through the same thing. I really look foward to reading your next book.

    I guess Scarlett was like a best friend for me she was so alike to me and when people made fun of me at school I would think what would Scarlett do(she got me into loads of trouble) when I tried to dye my hair red or when I wore my mums high heels to school I would just laugh at the children who stared or shouted rude things at me. I didn't go quite as far as piercing my tounge though.but whenever I feel sad or down I always read Scarlett.

    This book is amazing! Even though Chris ans Sara divorced, they are still friends which impressed me. Clare was so nice to Scarlett that make my day. This is my favourite book of all. Nice book Cathy!!

    Scarlett is the favourit-est among all my favourite books! basically all the books that I read becomes a favourite because I believe books have magic in them. scarlett is one of the books that helps me connect. Wild, rebellious, pathetic and disobedient) HAHAHA. The title, her story, her situation, from frustation to super-emotional, Kian, and the ending! I have no words. As much as I love the book I love cathy cassidy- Your books are magical and a pit you never want to come out of!

  • Tiffany rhodes, age 13

    I really like this book a bout Scarlett as she feels like an unhappy person Clare helps her through her unhappy life to turn it into an happy life from being with mum, nan, uncle John back to mum and now to DAD

  • coco, age 13

    I first read this book when I was in 4rd class and it was the best book I had ever read then and it still is now,
    thanks for a fab read cathy cassidy

  • Hanna, age 10

    This is probably my favourite book that Cathy Cassidy has written - PLEASE WRITE MORE BOOKS MS CASSIDY!!!! ( don't write any sad ones though please, like u did in broken heart club. )

  • casey, age 15

    I first read this book when I was in year 5/6 and I fell in love. I made my year 6 teacher read it to the whole class cause I wanted everyone to hear the story. He use to say I was just like her, and that always made me smile. 5 years on, this is STILL my favourite book and I must of read it over a thousand times. I'm not a fan of reading at all, yet your books are so special to read, because I can relate to them, or they give me hope and dreams and something to smile about! I'm grateful for every book you've written, and I really hope you keep it up. Love Casey xx (27/2/16)

    Scarlett is a determined, feisty, angry 12 year old. She just can't settle down. Constantly getting into riots and 'accidents' at school, she's far from an A - star student - and Mum has had enough. The worst has happened - Mum has dropped the biggest bombshell.... she's packing Scarlett off to her no - good Dad's happy home in some Irish dump with his new wife, Clare and stepdaughter, Holly. But when Scarlett's there she can't help but love it. From chirpy Holly to the luscious lough, Scarlett is smitten. But then Scarlett meets mysterious boy, Kian and his gorgeous ebony horse Midnight and she feels as if she's in a dream. Everything's going great - until disaster strikes. When her family needs her most, can Scarlett pull through and behave?
    Well done, CC, another fab book! :-)

Hello planet!

Coco here! I’m afraid on top of ALL of the worlds other problems (global warming, saving the pandas…

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,
