Dear Scarlett


Dear Scarlett‘ opens with our title character nonplussed by delivery of a package shortly after her 11th birthday. Why would her late father, whom she recollects in snatches, offer her some postcards, picklocks and a copy of ‘Gone with the Wind’. There’s a note too:- ‘Keep looking up Scarlett, keep up the gym and don’t trust just ANYONE.’

Scarlett’s tempted by the mysterious delivery. A midnight escapade and wildlife rescue are trivial as the intrigue and truth become deeper and darker.

Fleur Hitchcock is an eminently readable, fast-paced, truthful children’s writer. Her mystery stories are pulsating and peopled with likeable, real characters like Scarlett.

We recommend ‘Dear Scarlett‘ to readers who enjoy pacy, cracking stories, with great characters in realistic situations.
