Rated 3 out of 5 by from Suite Scarlett (Scarlett #1) by Maureen Johnson Maybe I'm being nit-picky here, but it bothered me. The author clearly wanted Scarlett to feel utterly abandoned -- either that or she couldn't handle a cast of characters that involved Scarlett's friends -- and it was written in a way that felt like everyone vacating Manhattan for the summer to go back home from a year of college. It was a case of the writing being simultaneously dumbed down to be YA and the situation being a little too not YA.Anyway, I'm going to dislodge the fine tooth comb for a moment: the book isn't bad. It is really just okay. It isn't so awful that I'm going to be tempted to raid my local Barnes and Nobles and hide her books behind pre-law study guides, but it's not good enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suite Book! This book wasn't actually that bad. It wasn't the best book I've read but it wasn't the worst. I like the characters a lot, and the story line as well. It could've been a little better, but overall it wasn't that bad, and the book had a bit of humor in it, and I love funny books. Especially ones that make you laugh out loud! I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a dramatic book with romance and humor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tottally Suite. This book was pretty good, it only took me about a day or two to finish it. The plot was pretty well planned out, in a way there's maybe two plots, the one with Scarlett and Eric's relationship, and the one with the ever so accentric Mrs. Amberson and Scarlett. At the very end, things are pretty much resolved, except for the thing with Scarlett and Eric, that's pretty much left out in the open. There is talk of a sequel. and for that I can't wait! Overall this book was pretty good, Maureen did an amazing job :)
