I'm a Casey Watson fan and have enjoyed most of her books so I was looking forward to this being released. Scarlett's Secret is a Short story about Casey's time working as a Youth Centre Team leader. This is long before she became a Foster Care and indeed before she worked in the "Unit" at a Secondary school that she mentions in some of her books.

The two main characters are Jade and Scarlett, twin sisters with a dark past. They attend the workshops that Casey is running for young people not in education or work. They do Adult literacy courses, numeracy and team building exercises so that hopefully they can go out in to the world and find their 'place'. Jade has an unpleasant problem and Scarlett open up to Casey about the root course of it. As is mentioned early on in the book is how child behaviour is like an Iceberg. The part you see is the bit sticking above the water whilst the remaining bit under the water is the root cause of the problems. It's that that you need to get to the bottom of.

The story has a positive ending where you feel optimistic about the girls future. Casey's books are so easy to read and despite the subject matters often being quite heavy going she manages to bring a lightness in her story telling so that you don't get dragged down by the darkness of it all.

If you like Cathy Glass books and even Toni Maquire then you will enjoy Casey Watson's books. I look forward to her next release.

Casey Watson's work as a project team leader deals with youths who had become troublesome from a variety of backgrounds. Prior to becoming a foster carer, this story involving twin sisters is harrowing and moving. It illustrates Casey's attributes in fathoming out the root causes of their disturbed behaviour. It requires considerable skills, understanding and compassion to achieve these and then try to resolve them. This is a particularly horrific case-study of abuse, revealing Casey's approaches to the difficult work she faces and finds so fulfilling. A well-written short story.

Worth reading although it is yet another story which obviously needs airing but this is not the best depiction by author Casey Watson. The book was very good for most of it then seemed to quicken pace and end, almost as though there was something lacking in the last part of the book.

If you want a quick read it's ok but it was a very short almost rushed story with not much background information on the two girls I felt it was a book that was written in a couple of hours which is longer than it took me to read it

Great book but have loved reading all her books. I work in childcare and am part of child protection and these books give so much insight into how children have suffered and the ways in which we as adults in this work can help them.

I love Casey Watson's other works and this one didn't disappoint. Shorter than her usual books, it tells the true story of twin sisters sharing a heartbreaking secret and Casey's successful attemts to help them.
