Format: Paperback
I have read all of Cathy's books and although they're all brilliant, Scarlett is something extra-special. Scarlett has been in loads of trouble, and her mum, who can't take any more, sends her away from their home in London to her Dad's place in the wilds of Ireland. As the story unfolds, Scarlett transforms from being a hurt and angry girl into someone brave and amazing, finding love and magic along the way with a mysterious boy called Kian. The writing is brilliant - poetic but pacy, and there's not a dull moment or lull in the story. It's gripping, and I cried at the end! Just perfect.

This is a book about a troubled young teenager called Scarlett. Her life is one big road of misery, especially after her mum has had enough of her getting into trouble at school. She packs her off to stay with her dad on the west coast of Ireland. Scarlett feels unwanted, and distant from her father and his happy family. But can local boy Kian turn her thoughts around?

Scarlett
by Cathy Cassidy

I really enjoyed this book because you can really understand the way Scarlett is feeling. My favorite character was Kian, because he was always there for Scarlett when she needed him. A real page turner and a great book. A book for all girls who like a story of magic with a tad of adventure. You will love it!

Myself and my daughters aged 14,12 and 10 all enjoyed this well written and moving story of the confused teen Scarlett as she struggles to come to terms with family break up, schools and adolesence generally. We thought the gentle love story between her and Kian, and her reconciliation with her family and life/school generally was well-written and heart-warming. We first encountered the story on audio casette and liked it so much we bought the book. We've passed the book on to a friend with a son called Kian and await her comments on the story with interest! Enjoy!

My daughters review:
I didn't think I'd like this book. I thought it'd be another typical rebellious teenager, fighting back and falling in love. However, I have learnt to not judge a book by its cover, and I'm so glad I took the time to read this book and witness the truth behind each page. Cathy Cassidy has represented some horrible and scary truths in her novel, without it being too disruptive for younger readers, and that is a school only few authors can manage.

Scarlett is about a young girl named Scarlett who is from a broken home. Her dad left her mother for someone else and Scarlett utterly hates him for it. Her childhood shattered, her dreams disappearing, Scarlett finds herself rebelling by dying her hair, acting out and getting her tongue pierced. However, her late working mother finds herself distressed and just lets Scarlett get on with it over and over again. But after being kicked out of school again, Scarlett's mum is left with no choice but to send Scarlett packing to live with her dad in the mystical world of Ireland, where he lives with his new wife and her daughter. After embarking on the journey that she knows she's going to hate, Scarlett finds herself in the middle of a happy family and she's prepared to ruin it. She hates her mum for leaving her with her dad and she hates her dad for leaving her mum. The only person who she subtly connects with is, Holly, her step-sister and with her dads wife, Clare, being pregnant, Scarlett's anger lashes out in so many more ways. So when a tall, dark, handsome, travelling yet mysterious boy appears, Scarlett finds herself forcing her feelings to be nothing more but love then anger. But, just like everything - it all goes wrong.

Cathy Cassidy has presented the life of a broken home brilliantly.

I'm 13 and this was the first Cathy Cassidy book I have ever read!. My friend was talking about it one day in class. She leant it to me and I loved it. Its all about a girl called Scarlett. Scarlett is really naughty and manages to get expelled. Her mum sends her away to Ireland to live with her dad and his wife. Scarlett's dad's wife has a yound daughter called Holly who is trouble.

Is a mystery boy on a black horse the boy of her dreams?. Find out!. I really recomend this book if you are between tha age of 12-16. So read it!
xoxoxoxo x:)

My book,Scarlett is the best book I've ever read its really funny sometimes sad and exiting. I love it because I can really get into it and enjoy it so much, I could read it all day. My friends have also read it and said it was an exellent book. I think Jacquilene Wilson has met her match (cathy cassidy).

Scarlett is a troublsome 12 year old girl who has been all over because her mum is finding her hard to handle until she goes to dads house in island...

I reccomend this book to everybody. It is such a wonderful book. Its about this girl called Scarlett who is very naughty and has been to 5 schools in 2 years. She moves to her dads house and 1 step at a time she becomes more nice each time and in the end everything works out. This book has probably been the best book i've seen.

Another one of Cathy Cassidys amazing books!
Scarlett is forced to go live with her dad and his girlfriend in Ireland after giving her mum a hard time with that awful attitude of hers.
There she learns a lot about life and becomes a better person.
