Dear Scarlett

Scarlett knows nothing about her dead father except what she can learn from the cardboard box of objects he left her. Piecemeal clues that she sifts through, dreaming of answers, trying to guess at his story. Desperate to learn the truth, Scarlett and her friend, Ellie, go on a hilarious (and 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? A funny and poignant story about a young girl’s quest to make sense of what it means to be left behind.
