    loved this book.

    scarlett is a feisty young girl who does what she wants. he parents split up when she was little and that’s when she became the shouty loud mouthed girl she is today.

    when she get’s expelled from her latest school her mum decides shes had enough and can’t cope with everything scarlett’s doing.

    so her mum sends Scarlett to go and live with her dad in Ireland even though she said she never would.

    Scarlett has a bad feeling about the place she’s been sent from the very start. She thinks she’s been sent to the most boring place on earth and will slowly die of boredom.

    after a failed attempt to skip school by being caught by dad and his pregnant wife Claire she goes to her new school in which there is one class for student in year 3 to year seven meaning she is basically back in primary school.

    during a lesson where she learning the language she loses it and runs off. she finds herself alone lost and has a sprained ankle from wearing heels.

    suddenly a boy appears called kian and Scarlett likes him! Will she lose the bad girl reputation or will she do something worse than having her tongue pierced!

    Scarlett is much more red headed than the picture on the front! It is very good, Scarlett is very different and when she falls in love she struggles to know how to feel. It’s very good!

    This is a good but weird book, you never can tell what’s going to happen next. The boy she meets Kian, i thought he wasn’t real at first ! It’s a good read, ages 11+

    This book is brilliant! Scarlett puts on a facade and comes across strong, bold and fearless. However inside all she wants is to feel welcomed and be nice.

    This book is honestly just …#AMAZING with a capital A mate!

    me gusta/J’adore Ms Cassidy’s books, but now I am going to experiment reading others authors.

    P.S Kevin Brooks is a amazing author…
