Sophomore year is a full-time job for Scarlett!

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.

Maureen Johnson is the author of Suite Scarlett, The Key to the Golden Firebird, 13 Little Blue Envelopes, The Bermudez Triangle, Devilish, and Girl at Sea. She lives in New York City.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Scarlett Fever (Scarlett #2) by Maureen Johnson This book... really made me upset. There was so many times when I actually wanted to bang my head against the wall and other acts of self-mutilation because of how angry I got! It's a little sad to say this because I genuinely enjoyed Suit Scarlett. I thought it was a well-thought out book: I enjoyed the plot, the characters (minus two), and the all-around humor to the story. This one? Yeah... it was a bit painful to get through. I was so close to wanting to burn the book.Scarlett. I have grown to loathe this character with a burning hatred... so much so that if I was to see this poor excuse for a female walking down my street, I would beat the living crap out of her! She's so dull; she does absolutely nothing worthwhile throughout the entire series. (Yes, including Suite Scarlett.) All she does is suggest a few things and then let everyone else execute her meager plans. At first, I didn't mind her because unimpressive girls are not that big of a deal... but then she got stupid when she got together with Eric. Eric is a douche who really just wanted to fool around with her (I hate him, too) but she seemed to be alright with that because she has no spine. Even after they broke up (That's in the first book so it's not a spoiler. If you haven't read that yet, then what are you doing reading this review to begin with? What am I trying to say? I'm trying to say the book was... okay. Definitely not the worst book ever written but not the best either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charming as she is sweet... SCARLETT FEVER is the charming and delightful sequel to Maureen Johnson’s SUITE SCARLETT. Tending to a broken heart, starting a new school year, and her older brother Spencer being attacked with donuts, has Scarlett completely on edge. This is in addition to helping out with her family’s financial troubles by working for the eccentric Mrs. Amberson who has started her own theatrical agency, which among many of her duties, includes walking the perpetual peeing toy dog and not spying on her boss’s newest prodigy’s brother Max. Like the first book, we have a full cast of truly loveable characters - even her youngest sister Marlene, who is definitely one of those kids you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley. And there are a number of additions who give the book some of its most animated and endearing moments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great and Enjoyable Read I found Scarlett Fever even better than the first book. There was a lot more going on and there are twists in the plot that keep everything moving at a fast pace and exciting. I finished this book in only a couple of sittings as many elements of the book kept me intrigued, especially the mysterious Max. The whole cast from Suite Scarlett come back, along with a few new additions. I really liked the whole composition of the story and hope that there will be another book about Scarlett in the near future.
