What a great little story! I love Scarlett as a character. Terrific for Lit Circles. ( )

I loved this little coming of age novel. I wish it were appropriate for school. Scarlett is a beautifully complex 12 year old. A perfect portrait of what adolescence is all about. A child trapped in a body that's speeding towards adulthood. My one complaint was the appearance of Scarlett's mother at the end, that seemed far too sweet to be believable. ( )

A warm-hearted, coming of age story about a girl struggling with her family's break-up. Many young people, whose parents have divorced, will identify with the anger and emotions that Scarlett is feeling. ( )

The Irish backdrop gives this a dreamy quality and that makes a familiar tale seem fresh. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670060682, Hardcover)

Scarlett's in trouble at school. Again. With black fingernails and dyed ketchup-red hair, she's not your average twelve-year-old Londoner. So her mum—sick of trying to get her into another school—ships Scarlett to her father's cottage in Ireland. Having to learn Gaelic in a one-room schoolhouse and enduring a new stepmum and younger stepsister is just too much. Scarlett wants to leave—until she meets Kian. He seems too good to be true with his dark, rugged looks, kind nature, and horse named Midnight. As Kian helps Scarlett let go of her anger, she begins to accept her family, her friendships, and most of all, her dreams. A captivating new novel from a writer reviewers have called "a British import with a refreshingly light touch." —School Library Journal on Indigo Blue.
