Overview

Cathy’s Book was literally a word-of-mouth success story, with over 120,000 copies of the groundbreaking, interactive teen novel in print. Perhaps less noticeable was the heart of the book: a good story well told. Now fans of Cathy Vickers will return to the exciting, unpredictable world that made the first book such a success. Cathy was your average high school student-doodling in the margins of her journal, crushing on a cute boy, and hanging out with her best friend Emma. As this story begins, she’s trying to keep a job, her journal is stolen, the cute boy is not who he seems to be, and even Emma’s side project/start-up company, Doubletalk Wireless, is about to get caught up in the mystery surrounding Cathy and her search for the truth about her father. Her presumed-dead father. It’s just a simple story really: Girl loves Boy, Boy disappears, Girl discovers secret that will alter the course of humanity....

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
In this sequel to 2006's multimedia New York Times bestseller, teen heroine Cathy Vickers returns only to have her diary and cell phone stolen. Confusion and melee ensue, and Cathy has to call on her immortal boyfriend Victor, her best friend Emma and Emma's goofy boyfriend Pete to help out. Throw in Victor's creepy dad, who's also immortal and has a crush on Cathy, half a dozen other offbeat immortals and a drugged-out plastic surgeon. Full of the same snarky, teenaged wordplay, off-kilter coincidences and eerie tension as the first installment, this offering will thrill its fan base. Though the plot on the printed page feels pieced together, readers can flesh the story out by calling the number on the cover and-if produced similarly to the first-examining the evidence packet that comes with it. (The first included websites that worked, artwork, musings and memorabilia.) Cathy is as lovable as ever, and her deadpan, smart-alecky voice and sketches should draw new readers to the series. Perfect for gaming fans, reluctant readers and manga enthusiasts. (Fiction. YA)

    Ok, but not Great.

    I found the first Cathy book fun. I liked going through the evidence and finding out the case. I liked calling the numbers, and reading the story. This one, I couldn't get through. I found it dragging and lacking a plot. It just centers around Cathy and how she can't live without her stupid boyfriend Victor. Don't waste your money.
