Scott Jenkins is charming, smooth, full of ambition and he has plans. Plans that don't involve being a 19-year-old builder, working long hours at his father's construction company, hauling wheelbarrows or stacking bricks in an underpaid job. But as with most things in Scott's world, the dreams and ambitions he has set himself never really go to plan.

Favorite Quotes:

“On the outside she looks perfect, but inside, she just wants to be liked. There’s a need to be perfect, but she seems to know she will never actually be able to reach her goal.”

“I don’t care that the neighbors have shown up more than once to put an end to the noise. I don’t even care that the first impression they will be getting of their new neighbor is that he’s a paralytic drunk who mistakes them for Jehovah’s Witnesses yet still goes on to offer them shots long after they’ve

Oh, Scotty... From the very first sentence in this book, I was right there with Scott on his complicated journey into adulthood.

Scott is a loveable character whose sense of humour is the thing that struck me the most in this book. His wit and charm get him through the tough times he faces. I loved reading about his friendship with Ethan Walker (the protagonist from book 3 in the series) from the other side of things. The struggle he faces when forced to watch his best friend descend into a worl

What can I say about Scott Jenkins?

A lot!!

It’s a story about growing up, and facing the decisions we make for ourselves, about regret and how love doesn’t always come from where you expect it to. Scott Jenkins is a great guy, best friend to Ethan Walker, and the youngest of three kids. He struggles to find himself in the melting pot we call life, until he finally breaks free of conformity and makes a big decision for himself regardless of the consequences. It should have been an easy enough tr

This Road to Wonderland series is fabulous. The Secrets of Scott is technically the fourth book, if you are reading them in order, so being Ethan’s best mate I’d already met Scott Jenkins. Scott has been quite a quiet character in all the previous stories. I’ve only learned of him what Ethan shared with us in his books - which were usually of the times that they were together. I was desperate to get to know Scott better and Charlie M. Matthews did not disappoint at all.

I loved hearing Scott’s pe

You know how everyone tells you that they wish you could see yourself through their eyes? And that we are our own harshest critics? And that living up to everyone's expectations can be so damn maddening that we tend to lose part of our self in the fray. This is Scott Jenkins. The young man with a smart mouth and sharp wit. A young man who doesn't want to do what his parents want him to do. A young man who has had to live under a different set of expectations than his brother, Liam, and is so afr ...more

There are certain traits which make a character relatable. First of all, they've got to have a good sense of humour. Secondly, they have to show vulnerability, without seeming weak. Third, they have to care, not just for themselves, but for those around them. Lastly, they have to make mistakes. They have to have flaws - flaws which you as the reader can relate to. Scott Jenkins has all these things in abundance.

I loved this instalment of the RTW series, because it shows us the personality and t

Have I told you how much I love this series?? The idea alone is amazing but then these incredibly talented authors came together to create this whole new world to grab us readers and pull us in.

The Road to Wonderland Series is a story about different people during the same time period. We get to visit different events that happened but view them through the eyes of the different characters. In every book, characters from the other books, make an appearance. It is such a genius idea because this

OMG!!! I fell in love with Scott the minute he opened his mouth!Charlie Matthews took us through the mind of the loveable Scott Jenkins in a way that you couldn't help but fall in love with him. Scott may not have been perfect but he loved with all of his heart and was the best friend anyone could ask for. He never felt like he did enough for everyone but he really did. The scenes between he and Meli had you screaming at him but also feeling his love and pain. You may think he is a slacker durin ...more

What I love about this book is how much it affirms the fundamental value of Wonderland - friendship. The bond between Scott and Ethan reminds me of the bond Izzy and Paris have; no matter the time or distance, they are there for each other, no questions asked.

Charlie M. Matthews has done an fabulous job in portraying yet another great character in the Road to Wonderland Series. It's warm, heartfelt and even though Scott commits a big betrayal against his brother, you still can't help but love th

Fantastic book! I loved all the books in the series. Charlie Matthews way of writing is so real to me and full of romance. Her leading men always grab my heart. I knew I liked Scott because of what we saw of him in Ethan's book. I adored him when I finished his book.

OMG this book is just brilliant... getting Scotts story is just what you were waiting on all through this series and it did not disappoint me one bit... I devoured it in one sitting without wanting to put it down.

Jammed packed full of drama.. heart break and craziness that is Scott this book has it all.

Throughly enjoyed every flipping second of this book and series but I’m left with questions about all the characters and whether there is more from this series that I don’t know about as yet. I really hope there is but even if there isn’t this book/series is so stunningly beautiful that I highly recommend you read it.
