Book: Suite Scarlett
Genre: YA Romance-ish
For: YA Romance challenge, and for fun!
I'm trying to catch up on all Maureen Johnson's books. I've a couple left to go, but this is her latest, newest one. It's about Scarlett, and her family. They live in an old, funky hotel in the middle of New York City. As the summer begins and Scarlett thinks life couldn't get any more boring, they get a guest for which she ends up "working". This lady is very... interesting... and before she knows it, Scarlett is mixed up in a bunch of strange things. One thing is helping her brother, a struggling actor, get a job... sort of. So she's hanging out with this strange lady, making friends with her older brother's acting crowd, and then there's this guy too. Of course. And meanwhile her parents and sisters all have their various problems that need solving.
Fun book, but not one of my most favorites. Simple, enjoyable, cute and lots of funny moments. Just what I needed.
And now, a video for Halloween. One of my favorite songs from the Mannheim Steamroller Halloween album:
