Top student. Beauty queen. Girlfriend of the hottest football jock. Felicity's got everything. And it's all down to her red, red hair. Felicity lives in Scarletville, the world's only redhead sanctuary, where red hair is celebrated, protected - and the key to success. But Felicity has a secret. A red hot secret. And if anyone finds out, she's finished. Because Felicity's actually a natural blonde. And in Scarletville, blondes need not apply.
A funny and entertaining read - I read it in a morning!

A wonderful concept that takes serious issues of image, identity and staying true to yourself and deals with them in an interesting and original way. It's fairly obvious what is going to happen overall, but there are some great bits all the way through the book.

I'd definitely recommend this to people who like an easy and fun read.

- Gem.
