Product Description

Sassy Scarlett is red with rage when she’s packed off to live with her traitor dad. They say she needs to learn to behave – but what about HIM? He’s the one who left her family in the lurch. He’s the reason for everything going wrong; for her never being able to stay in a school, for the rules that always just, somehow, seem to get broken. Ha! They won’t get round her so easily! But she hasn’t reckoned with the gorgeous, mysterious Kian. For some reason, he seems to want to change Scarlett’s mind. Is there just a tiny chance that – this time – things will be different? Amid the rolling Irish hills, can Scarlett and her father be reconciled?

Cathy Cassidy’s stirring teen novels have a huge following. Their optimism, realism and empathy explain their popularity, especially with girls, and are perfect for fans of Jacqueline Wilson.

More about Cathy: “I was born in 1962 in Coventry (scarily ancient, I know!). I wrote my first picture book for my little brother when I was eight or nine. I loved making comics, too – pages and pages of picture stories, features and competitions. I’d sell my homemade comic to a friend for 5p, then claim it back and sell it again to someone else,they didn’t have photocopiers back then!

I went to Art College in Liverpool, then got a job as fiction editor on the fab and legendary Jackie magazine. Later, I married my boyfriend Liam, went back to college and trained to be an art teacher. I taught in a Coventry secondary school for a few years, which I loved, then moved to Scotland with Liam to start a family.

My kids are 13 and 14 years old now, and the four of us live in a cottage in the Galloway hills with sheep and cows for neighbours. As well as writing books, I am the agony aunt on Shout magazine and sometimes teach art in the local primary schools, which is great fun and keeps me sane. (Well, maybe!)

I’ve been veggie for 30 years, and was vegan for 8 of them – a chocolate-eating vegan, like Storm! I love old clothes, old toys, cars, books. We have three cats, two rabbits and a mad, hairy lurcher called Kelpie (the model for Leggit in my book Dizzy).

I love my family, I love living in the middle of nowhere and I love my work. Of all my jobs, writing has to be the best – it’s the perfect excuse to daydream, after all!”

    Scarlet doesn’t want to go and live with her Dad. If he didn’t go and mess things up for her, Scarlet would of been able to stay at school with her friends and study with RULES! She doesn’t want a Dad who breaks rules all the time! But her boyfriend thinks she’s being selfish and tries to make her change her mind about the way she feels for her Dad! But will it work?

    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…
