Why? Because these books are highly character driven which means that once you start knowing the characters, the book is a charm to read. This is not to say that the plotline is not there, because it is, however, what really moves this book are the wonderful characters. Although I liked our main character, I was mostly enthralled by how ALL the characters play off each other and with each other.
My favorite character is definitely Mrs. Amberson. Scarlett is now her assistant (and this alone is worth reading the book as silly, silly things happen to Scarlett that will make you cringe, laugh and laugh some more). All the while Scarlett is trying to get through school, forget a romance and find a new romance. Lots going on!!
But as I mentioned, what drives this story is the respect and love that the characters have for each other. There is also alot of humor in this storyline and I loved the interaction between Scarlett and Mrs. Amberson who is quite the character.
I now have to buy the other book in this series to catch up.
Maureen Johnson's writing is the funnest, quirkiest you'll read in YA. But more than that, her characters are real, well rounded, and growing.
I got so into the story I was jarred to discover that obviously, there is more to this tale. Can you say loose ends? Yes. But the kind that make you keep checking for the next title's release date.
Just so you know, this is not just for teens. I am in my forties and loved the book.
Scarlett's brother Spencer is still working at being an actor, and when an unexpectedly large opportunity falls into his lap, he has to take it. Unfortunately, the consequences reach his family, but the Martin's are nothing if not supportive!
Little sister Marlene is back from camp, and is being nice to Scarlett. Scarlett knows something is brewing, but little does she imagine just what Marlene has planned!
Lola is working and trying to figure out her place in life when she does something that absolutely no one sees coming, then does something that's more of a Spencer-act. Her choices will spin her family into a tizzy of emotions, but will things be alright in the end?
And then there's our main girl, Scarlett. I love Scarlett. She has personality, depth and is snarky to perfection! Her job with Mrs. Amberson's theatrical agency has her doing dog-walking duty, spying on a fellow classman, and being friendly with someone she isn't particularly too fond of. Of course she's doing this while cyber-stalking Eric, even though she keeps telling herself she'll stop. She can't help that she still really wants to be with him, can she? But then there's Max, her new biology lab partner and brother to her boss's new client. The boy is strange, but yet there's something about him that has Scarlett intrigued...
The ending left me satisfied, yet begging for another book on the Martin family. Hopefully Johnson delivers, and soon!Read more ›
This charming sequel to Suite Scarlett is a hilarious and wickedly entertaining read. It's never quite apparent from the first few chapters what the point of the story is, which makes reading a little slow at first, but Johnson's quick wit keeps the reader satisfied until the good stuff. I have to say I enjoyed Scarlett Fever more than its prequel, and I definitely attribute that to this novel's characters. Scarlett, the unassuming heroine of this tale is completely lovable and easy to relate to. I particularly admire her ability to manage her busy life without going insane and her skill as a problem solver. Scarlett's character experiences dramatic growth in this book, from not knowing what she wanted to do with her life to growing into and applying her creating problem solving skills. I don't think Scarlett quite realizes where her life could do even at the end of the story, but that's part of what makes me so excited for the next installment of Scarlett's adventures.
This endearing story appeals to fans of its prequel, Suite Scarlett, as well as Slept Away by Julie Kraut and Dream Girl by Lauren Mechling. I eagerly look forward to the continuation of this series.

Not my favorite book. It's a little slow paced. Maureen Johnson is a great author I would just recommend some of her other books first.Published 3 months ago by Clarks4

I wish Maureen Johnson would write more Scarlett books. I feel like I'm too old for them, but I've enjoyed both of them immensely.Published on December 3, 2013 by G.C.
I enjoyed it...... it took forever (in a hurry) to read. I would recommend this book to someone who doesn't like complete romance, but romance with adventure Hudson in it.Published on May 30, 2013 by Helen Casey
