This book Scarlett is about a girl who has the most sweetest name but isn't how they actually seem. Scarlett doesn't let anyone get in her way and doesn't really care about anyone or anything, but when she tries to do something nice it ends up turning horrible. But it has gotten to the point where no one could handle Scarlett anymore so she has to move with her dad that she doesn't like at all.
Scarlett is very warm-hearted and may not seem like it in the outside but she sure does care in the inside. The text states, "'You promised!' I say. 'You said I'd never have to see him again, not after what he did to us! He left us, Mum, he walked away. You said he was scum! You said we were well shot of him, that we'd make like he'd never existed!'" This is showing that she's breaking down and she's showing her deep feelings that has never came out before.
