Book Review: Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson

Suite Scarlett is one of Maureen Johnson's newest books. Scarlett Martin lives in a hotel. Unfortunately, this is not as glamorous as it sounds. Her parents own it, and they rarely have guests. When an eccentric, rich woman checks into the hotel on Scarlett's 15th birthday, Scarlett becomes her personal assistant. Throughout a summer that involves Hamlet, an actor friend of Scarlett's older brother, her older sister's rich boyfriend, and unicycles (though not necessarily in that order), Scarlett finds herself having a more interesting summer than she expected.

Read more about this book on Maureen Johnson's website and be sure to check out the reviews at the bottom by some other authors you may know: John Green, Libba Bray, Meg Cabot, and more!
