The bishop looked all cross and muttered 'What? What?' and he shouted 'LILAC SHROVE?' as if he had never heard of either of those names in his life. And not as if he felt they were both beautiful names that he'd just never thought of before, either.
I nodded and he went really purple and said, very slowly, 'Shrove is not the name of a saint.' I was scarlet.
Sometimes, ten-year-old Lilac feels as if she spends her life going from one mortifying event to the next, with barely a pause between. Even things that are meant to be fun, like her birthday party, end up turning her pink with embarrassment.
But there's a mystery to solve and a burglar to catch, not to mention her teacher's wedding to plan. Can Lilac and her friends (and ever-faithful Guzzler the dog) take control of the situation and save the day? Or will Lilac be scarlet once again?
Lilac in Scarlet is the second book of the Lilac the Girl trilogy, fiction set in Ireland for readers aged 9-12. Look for Lilac in Black and White, out now, and Lilac Blue, coming soon.
