We’ve just received finished copies for a very exciting 2013 title – Dear Scarlett by Fleur Hitchcock, a fantastic novel for 9 – 12 year olds, especially good for girls, but very likely to appeal to boys too: it’s an irresistible story told in the first person, combining adventure, mystery, lots of funny bits and a truly brilliant hero in Scarlett: she’s wise, gutsy and kind.
When Scarlett receives a box left to her by her dead father she sets off on a sometimes hilarious, sometimes scary, journey of discovery with her friend Ellie, following the clues that have been left behind and trying to solve a set of mysteries. Was her dad a thief? Was he a spy? And what does he want for Scarlett?
