Aftersnooze special,
"Suite Scarlett", Blah....9 pages in I was falling asleep. I picked it up again and forced my way through a few more chapters. The characters are so flat. I found myself skipping lines hoping for a pick up. I was looking for a reason to stay interested (awake) in this story. There just is nothing going on in that hotel...so hard to believe this is the best Johnson could come up with. I can't understand the good reviews.

Scarlett just turned fifteen, but instead of being awarded a fantastic vacation away from home (like all her other friends) she is given a suite in the hotel she lives in to take care of...like every other Martin in the family when they turn fifteen.

This isn't too bad until she meets her first guest that she must cater to, Mrs. Amberson, who will be staying all summer long! Though Scarlett believes this will be another boring summer, things start to get crazy with Mrs. Amberson along. She almost gets arrested for shoplifting, must keep helping to save her brother's production of Hamlet and his chances of ever making it as an actor, fetching Mrs. Amberson more tea then she could ever need, and even falling for a boy along the way!

Get ready New York: Scarlett is taking over!

This is my first novel by Maureen Johnson, but by no means will it be the last! I loved SUITE SCARLETT from the very beginning, immensely enjoying the characters and adventures. Scarlett and her brother, Spencer, have a great relationship with amazingly witty comebacks. You'll find yourself laughing along and wishing you had their relationship with your siblings!

The book is hilarious, thought-provoking, and fun! I'm thrilled there is going to be a sequel. So if you've read Johnson's work before...you need this one, as well. And if you haven't, then get to it! It's the perfect book to start you out on!

Scarlett Martin's fifteenth birthday does not go the way she expected, what is supposed to be a huge family breakfast turns into a family meeting about letting go of the last hotel employee. Then following the tradition of giving a suite of their own to take care of the needs of, gives Scarlett the "Empire Suite". The least used of the suites due to the coast and because only a few guest ever acutally stay at the hotel at a time seems to be a blessing to Scarlett, that is until ex-actress Amy Amberson moves in the suite.

Mrs. Amberson turns what is going to be a very boring summer into something out of a TV Drama. Almost getting arrested and taking over her brothers play are just some of the crazy plans taht Mrs. Amberson has for her. and what is it that is going on between her and her brother's freind/cast member Eric. Read for the laughs and the love taht happnes to Scarlett during a summer filled with drama on stage and off stage.
