Scarlett Fever by Maureen Johnson

Synopsis (from Goodreads)

Pages: 332
Publisher: Point
Released: 1st of February 2011

Ever since Mrs. Amberson, the former-aspiring-actress-turned-agent, entered Scarlett Martin's life, nothing has been the same.

She's still in charge of the Empire Suite in her family's hotel, but she's now also Mrs. Amberson's assistant, running around town for her star client, Chelsea - a Broadway star Scarlett's age with a knack for making her feel insignificant.

Scarlett's also trying to juggle sophomore year classes, her lab partner who is being just a little TOO nice, and getting over the boy who broke her heart.

What I Have to Say

It's been quite a while since I read Suite Scarlett. so it was really good how easy Scarlett Fever was to pick up and get back into. With some books, you really have to work to remember who the characters are and how the last book ended, but this wasn't the case with Scarlett Fever. I think part of it was because the characters were so easy to relate to as well as being very memorable. 

Suit Scarlett was also the very first book that I read by Maureen Johnson, so it felt really special to be reading the sequel. 

I loved the humour. I loved the characters. But I think the best thing about this book, compared to Suit Scarlett, was how much of Scarlett's normal everyday life we saw. The events in Suit Scarlett all happened over a rather weird summer, so it was good to see her go back to her normal life. And to see all the madness that was invading her life during the summer still very much affecting her life.

  1. That's all well and good (if that).... but what about Scarlett Fever? Were you intending to discuss it at some point? Because all you actually mentioned was Suite Scarlett...
