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 my fave book! Its so gripping and touching.
    My favorite parts are;
    When she moves to live with her dad
    When her mum comes after Clare had her baby.

    I've read just over half of this book at the moment but I think it's brilliant. It is really interesting and I think that Scarlett's character has such a great personality and things she says are really funny!! An amazing book Cathy Cassidy :)

  • Lucy, age 12

    Scarlett was an amazing book! I got it for Christmas 2013 and I read it twice! I love the fact that Scarlett changes her behaviour and then decides that she likes going to school I'm London! I am not a bit like Scarlett but I know that I would like her as a friend! I was wondering if the place in Ireland was real because I would love to do a project on it like Scarlett!?!? Xx thank you x

    Hi Cathy Cassidy (and readers!),
    I thought Scarlett was an amazing book!
    Quite a bit of drama (which is good!).
    From Mellie.
    Are you writing any more Chocolate Box girls books Cathy?

  • Samantha, age 12

    I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!! It's soooooooooooo good! When I'm reading it, I totally forget that Scarlett is twelve like me. Isn't that amazing? If you liked Scarlett, read Indigo Blue and Dizzy too. Their amazing.

    This was the first book I ever read by cathy Cassidy, I read this I'n year 6, when I went to secondary school I found it I'n the library again so I took it out and read it all over again. I like this book so much last year in year 8 I bought it and I still read it now! (year 9 now) although I love this book so, it is not my favourite book by Cathy. My gave is gingersnaps. (also leaving a comment on that one too. SUMMARY WHY I LIkE THIS BOOK: Although it is very dramatic and fantasy fairytale like with the romance I think it is a lovely story line I can't help but get emotional, some times I get angry with people like the mother or the little step sister at times however I like this cos it makes you think what you would have done I'n that situation. Over all this is. Brilliant book and if you like emotion and your sensitive, you will LOVE this book I know I did.
