A very simple, cute sequel that was an easy read. I enjoyed reuniting with the characters and seeing more of their lives. It was very cute! ( )

Scarlett's summer of madness has ended. The production of Hamlet they've been hosting in her family's hotel has ended and school is lurking on the horizon. But just because life has started to fall back into its regular pattern doesn't mean the craziness that is the Martin household has abated. Scarlett still has her lingering feelings for Eric to deal with, her older brother, Spencer, is going through audition hell, her younger sister, Marlene, is being weirdly nice, her older sister, Lola, is getting friendly with her ex-boyfriend again, and Scarlett's boss is driving her a bit crazy with all of the demands of being a talent agency. With all of that madness, who has time for a practically sociopathic lab partner in bio?

I was happy to once again immerse myself in the world of the Martins and their hijinks. Scarlett remains a flawed but lovable teenager whose complicated life makes for highly entertaining reading. Johnson's combination of the dramas of life with quirky humour makes the book a delight. While the book leaves many loose ends that I'd love to see followed up in another Scarlett novel, any time spent in a world of Johnson's creating is a good time. ( )

Scarlett Fever by Maureen Johnson is the sequel to Suite Scarlett. Although Scarlett's special charge has checked out of the family hotel, she's still tied up in her adventures. Because she's now Mrs. Amberson's personal assistant.

Scarlett already had a brother who wanted to be an actor more than anything. That's now spiraling out of control and Mrs. Amberson isn't really helping matters.

It was in the madness that is acting both for stage and screen where I started to lose enthusiasm for Scarlett Fever. The friendship that worked so well within the well defined spaces of the hotel seemed to go awry with a larger stage.

Worst of all Scarlett was obsessing like Candace for Jeremy except her boy was a complete and utter jerk who saw her as a means to an end and nothing more. I get that people do this in real life but I wanted more for Scarlett who in the previous book had seemed so on top of things. ( )

3.5 stars. Not quite as quirky as the first, but still a fun read. ( )

This started off really strong, but fell flat about thirty pages before the ending. I don’t know if Maureen Johnson’s planning on a third book, but as a follow-up to Suite Scarlett, this fails.

There are some good things. I liked that even though Scarlett’s trying to get over Eric, she’s stuck in a position where she can’t help but run into him all the time and that they have to deal with their lingering feelings for each other. I liked that the messiness of the brief romance got addressed and that it’s hard for both parties to move on. I really liked Chelsea—she made for a good foil to Scarlett, and liked that they both bonded very quickly without being set-up as frenemies for no good reason. Also, we finally get to see Scarlett’s other friends properly in this book. Mostly, it’s her friend Dakota, but I liked that they do show up and play some role.

The strongest plot in the book is Lola’s. It’s an expansion of her romance with Chip, and I liked that a big part of her questioning this is Lola’s financial motives and if she’s really in love. It’s fairly ambiguous to both the reader and Scarlett, and it’s a nice touch. Also, by the end of the book, not everything’s magically patched up and okay, which is another thing that I liked.

Spencer’s storyline started off strong, but my major problem is that it doesn’t feel resolved. I liked that it starts with his sudden thrust to fame, and dealing with being not only the most hated man in New York for reasons he can’t control while trying to get new roles. And I liked that he has to deal with the implications and what it means for his family. (I loved the scene with the obsessive Crime and Punishment fan who realizes that she’s staying at the same hotel where Spencer is.) And it all gets resolved by….him getting fake-punched for his sins. It feels very much like Spencer and his line of thought, but nothing gets resolved from that. And also, if people are that obsessed with a TV show that they’re blaming the actor playing the villain…really. (This is coming from a hardcore Lost fan.)

I do not like Max. I’m really not a fan of the “Jerk with a Heart of Gold” love interest, especially when he’s being a complete douchebag for no good reason. And aside from one drunken makeout, he and Scarlett don’t end up together, so what is his purpose? I get why he dislikes his mother and doesn’t want his sister to end up down the same path, but it never really gets resolved.

And Marlene. I thought that this book would really highlight the major change of her realizing that she can’t just get anything by playing the cancer card, and Marlene tries to be nicer but is hilarious inept at it. And then you find out that, no, she’s still a manipulative little witch who just scored a spokesperson deal. Does it make me feel bad that I want to punch a cancer survivor? Because I shouldn’t.

My big issue overall is that the book just ENDS with absolutely nothing resolved. What I loved about the first book is that while there was still uncertainity about Scarlett’s feelings for Eric and Spencer’s career, it still felt like progress had been made and there was development from the first chapter. Here, it’s like “And Spencer gets a happy ending! And Lola gets a happy ending! Happy endings for everyone!” There’s no reflection on what this all means for the Martins. I was disappointed when I turned the last page and landed on the acknowledgments. There feels like there should be more, and we never get it.

Unlike The Last Little Blue Envelope, this feels like an unnecessary sequel. There’s a lot of potential for a really good story, but ultimately, the quick ending lacks what I loved about the first book and doesn’t really look at the overall effect of the events on the characters.
