The Lovereading4Kids comment
February 2013 Book of the Month This refreshingly original story unravels an intriguing mystery surrounding a girl’s father. When she turns eleven, Scarlett receives a box of ‘tools’ – the kind used for picking locks - from her dead father, a notorious jewellery thief. And that sets her thinking. What did her father really do?
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Dear Scarlett a small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. 'this book has a really gripping plot that had me on the edge of my seat… A fantastic read!'

Dear Scarlett by Fleur Hitchcock
A funny, moving and absorbing story about a young girl’s attempts to learn more about her dead father through the objects she finds in a cardboard box he’s left her.
Scarlett and her friend, Ellie, go on a sometimes hilarious, sometimes scary, journey of discovery, following the clues and always remembering to ‘keep looking up’. Was Scarlett’s dad a thief? Was he a spy? And what does it mean to be his daughter?
