Book Review: Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson

This book was just SO cute! Scarlett lives with her quirky family in an old, falling apart hotel, the Hopewell, in NYC. Her brother is an actor with very little acting, her gorgeous older sister is dating a very rich guy who she may not love, and her little sister is an obnoxious cancer survivor. The novel follows Scarlett through a summer as she deals with her family's financial and relationship problems, her friends all having much more exciting lives than her's, a crazy boss with too many weird ideas, and a certain very cute boy who also happens to spend a lot of time at the Hopewell. Scarlett is a cute girl, with unruly blonde curls, and I think she is pretty easy for teenage girls to relate to. Every so often, there would be a line that was just unnecessary and annoying, but overall this book was clean. I recommend this book as an easy and quick summer read.
