Scarlet spends most of her time worrying about other people. Some are her friends, others are practically strangers, and then there are the ones no one else even notices. Trying to fix their lives comes naturally to her. And pushing her own needs to the side is part of the deal.

So when her older sister comes home unexpectedly married and pregnant, Scarlet has a new person to worry about. But all of her good intentions are shattered when the unthinkable happens: she falls for her sister’s husband. For the first time in a long time, Scarlet’s not fixing a problem, she’s at the center of one. And ignoring her feelings doesn’t seem to be an option....

This beautifully crafted novel by National Book Award finalist Deb Caletti is about crossing that blurry line between helping other people and hurting ourselves—and how to step back over it.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 2/12/2014

    " This book is amazing. It has a good plot, great characters and a beautiful story to read whenever you have the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abbey West | 2/10/2014

    " This is a good book, maybe just not exactly my type. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lindsy Cusic | 2/5/2014

    " After just reading This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen, this book is definitely sub-par. The characters try to be too thought-provoking and profound and end up looking silly and juvenile. I really didn't want to finish the book after the first 100 pages but, as frustrating as it was, my stubbornness persevered. The ending was one of the better parts of the book, but overall it was simply too shallow for me, even as a YA book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 WillowBe | 1/27/2014

    " So many profound sayings, the book is just filled with markits. But at the same time, it's like she knows she's being profound- there is a subtle air of self-congratulation in her writing. But good story, likeable characters, mild romance. I'll probably read again before I turn it in.Suitable for 14 and up. Though some curse words and adult situations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carissa Anne | 1/18/2014

    " This was an interesting book, and I am glad that I read it, even though at first I wasn't impressed by it's predictability. The way that the main character always helps other people, and does anything she can to make them happy, really spoke to me - it's something that I too have done over the years, to the same point that she eventually reaches in the book, where she's got to look out for herself instead. I'm intrigued at how this author can write different types of connections to her readers, since I've never seen a book like this before. The other book of Deb Caletti's I've read, "The Nature of Jade," was a very believable tale about a girl with anxiety disorder, and it told how she was able to get through it. I'm interested in seeing what other unique ways she has to connect with her readers, so I'll likely pick up some other books by her to try. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/16/2014

    " I love the author. She is a wonderful storyteller and Scarlet was a great girl trying to help everyone except herself. I was excited that she found and accepted Jesse. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 1/12/2014

    " I really liked this book. A couple of things happened that I wasn't expecting, but overall, good book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Xheni | 12/23/2013

    " This book had a very odd plot. I can imagine this happening, but I'd rather not think about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daria | 12/6/2013

    " I always like Deb Caletti's books. They're comfortable and they're sweet and the main characters always remind me a little of myself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alejandra | 11/19/2013

    " I think this is one of the books that has most marked me... I am very much like Scarlet, and I could recognize myself in every word... It has a powerful meaning and a nice story <3 So good :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bundles of | 8/26/2013

    " See my blog for a review of this book and other Deb Caletti books! : ) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 6/3/2013

    " I actually listened to this in audiobook. I remember enjoying the story pretty well. It wasn't the most mind-blowing story ever, but at the least, entertaining. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Izzie | 2/28/2013

    " I really didn't like this book. It wasn't the forbidden romance I was hoping for or that the description made it out to be. Definitely a few days lost on this book... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 3/12/2012

    " Enjoyable, but too self-consciously profound in some way. The narrative voice was written as though an adult were looking back at being a teen, rather than just as a teen, and so it just didn't feel like YA to me and dragged a bit. I might try others by Caletti, but I might not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xtîñà | 1/10/2012

    " Long- winded but great nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 1/3/2012

    " Caletti is right up there with Dessen for me, and her latest was no exception -- I loved Scarlet; she was an honest, eloquent narrator. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 9/14/2011

    " I loved this book. I have always liked Deb Caletti's book, and this is as good as the others I have read, if not better. Great story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 6/28/2011

    " This book was good not one of my favorits but still good. I dont blame Scarlet for falling for Hayden, I know I sure did. when I read this book It wasn't one that I couldn't put down but it is something worth reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Audrey | 6/1/2011

    " Hmm. Perhaps The Six Rules of Maybe is poignant for some but it's definitely not for me. I found it too ponderous, meandering, and I could not relate to Scarlet, the narrator, who is constantly driven to nurture and help others due to her inability to tolerate other people's pain. Eh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurel (The Book Garden) | 5/15/2011

    " Grade would be a B-, maybe a B. This book was wonderful with the characters, and Deb Caletti has a lot of talent with her lovely writing.

    Review to come. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 5/13/2011

    " As usual, I like how her characters seem quite realistic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gabrielle | 4/27/2011

    " First time reading Deb Caletti ... I'll definitely read more. Great insights into the differences between how we see ourselves and how others see us. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 4/27/2011

    " I love the author. She is a wonderful storyteller and Scarlet was a great girl trying to help everyone except herself. I was excited that she found and accepted Jesse. "

    " Deb Caletti is such a great author. I always fall into the lives of the characters. She is one of the best at putting the reader right into the settings of her novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miranda | 4/6/2011

    " I really LOVED this books. Two of the subplots kind of irked me, but overall, I thought the plot was great and the characters were real and I could relate to them. And I <3 the guys in the book. "
