Red Book Talk

By: Alison Cherry

BOOK TALK

Being a redhead in Scarletville doesn’t illicit the usual name calling of carrot top or ginger. In this small Iowa town, redheads receive preferential treatment. And red head Felicity St. John likes it that way. After all, it’s her senior year and she’s in charge of the school’s art show, a contestant in the Miss Scarlet pageant, and a shoe-in to be nominated for prom queen. But Felicity’s charmed life in Scarletville might be about to go up in flames. Someone out there knows her secret. And Felicity will risk just about anything to keep it.
