Scarlett Fever: Hilarious, Exciting, Meaningful, and Entertaining

Scarlett Fever is a fantastic follow-up to the first book in the series, Suite Scarlett. Life is never dull for anyone in the Martin family, especially Scarlett, whose job as Mrs. Amberson's personal assistant is becoming even more hectic and insane now that her boss has started an agency and is looking for talented actors to represent. She's also dealing with Eric-or rather, the lack of Eric-and thinking about him constantly, trying to move on from the disastrous not-quite-relationship they had in the first book. As a final touch to Scarlett's already overwhelming sophomore year, her new lab partner, Max, also happens to be the younger brother of Mrs. Amberson's newest client, a fifteen-year-old Broadway star-and Max seems intent on antagonizing Scarlett at every possible opportunity.

Just like the first book, the characters in Scarlett Fever are what make this novel so compelling. Scarlett is dealing with a lot of familiar problems that readers will relate to-antagonistic classmates, difficult adults/bosses, and heartbreak-and she does so in ways that are amusing, gratifying, painful, and completely real. Her relationships with the other characters in the book, like her brother Spencer, her best friend Dakota, Mrs. Amberson, and (of course) Eric, are all deliciously complicated and entertaining. Every supporting characters is also fantastically rich with personality, adding a depth to this story that is difficult to achieve. The plot moves quickly, though not too quickly, as the story unfolds and tension builds, bringing everything to a climax that is both satisfying and leaves the reader eagerly awaiting the third book.

Umm...... is that it?

Seriously? Please someone tell me that this is a trilogy and that it's just taking awhile for the third book to come out? I can't imagine a writer just leaving a book hanging like this. When i finished the last page I automatically assumed there was a third book either already released or soon to be released. Until I saw the date this book was published and read the reviews about the ending. Did the writer just get bored with the storyline and move on to writing other books instead? This book has more loose ends than a pair of cut off jean shorts! Ridiculous. I'm completely baffled by the lack of negative reviews in light of the ending. Maybe people who hated it just didn't want to waste anymore time on anything having to do with this letdown? I don't know, but I felt like I owed it to readers to let them know that at the end of this book you'll probably feel ripped off. Maybe not. Apparently a lot of people like it. Other than the way this book was left hanging, like a worn out climber on Mt. Everest, the book wasn't horrible. There are some very likeable characters. The witty banter between Scarlet and her brother was always entertaining. The Eric situation was a complete waste. Why have her obsessing over someone she never really dated and had like two or three closed mouth kisses with for like a book and a half? Very childish. By the way (note to author) most fifteen year olds don't have that type of an attention span when it comes to guys they don't have much contact with. Didn't make sense to drag that "relationship" out once he left for college. Which brings me to the question, am I the only one who's slightly skeeved out by the fact that this college guy would wanna date a fifteen year old? Anyway, her moping got really annoying. And just when a more suitable character for her to be involved with starts to make a connection.......book over! Not to mention the other characters, like Spencer, who deserved better than this ending. So strange. I hope I'm just jumping the gun and a third book is actually going to get published. If that's the case, then I will revise my review. Until that time I can't in good faith give this book higher than two stars.
