Smart, funny, and full of awesome . . . everything I look for in a book. Rachel Hawkins, "New York Times" bestselling author of the Hex Hall series Felicity St. John has it all: loyal best friends, a hot guy, and artistic talent. And she s right on track to win the Miss Scarlet pageant. Her perfect life is possible because of just one thing: her long, wavy, coppery red hair. Redheads hold all the power in Scarletville and everybody knows it. That s why Felicity is scared down to her roots when she receives an anonymous note: "I know your secret." Because Felicity is a big fake. Her hair color comes straight out of a bottle. And if anyone discovers the truth, she ll be a social outcast faster than she can say strawberry blond. Felicity isn t about to let someone blackmail her life away. But just how far is she willing to go to protect her red cred? As thought-provoking as it is enchanting. Rae Carson, author of the Fire and Thorns trilogy Clever, wickedly funny, and with so much heart. Melina Marchetta, author of "Jellicoe Road, " a Michael L. Printz award winner"show more
