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
  • Ella, age 17

    I read this book in 2008 when I was in year 7. It was so fantastic! I have read it twice overall and I can say it is probably my favourite book to read. I still remember it so clearly after reading it that long ago. Thank you for such a great read. I suggest this to anyone and everyone!

    Wow!! I normally read books about children on their best behaviour, but scarlett had me shocked! I love the way the book makes me feel emotional and tingly on the inside. The twist at the end with the change of her behaviour was sooo unexpected!!
    Plzzz make more books about scarlett xx

    I love this book! It is so good. It shows a girl that doesn't want to hide her identity just because of her mum. She doesn't care about what people think about her and her ketchup red hair.
    This is an amazing book!!
