Description

Ever since Mrs. Amberson, the former-aspiring-actress-turned-agent, entered Scarlett Martin's life, nothing has been the same.

She's still in charge of the Empire Suite in her family's hotel, but she's now also Mrs. Amberson's assistant, running around town for her star client, Chelsea - a Broadway star Scarlett's age with a knack for making her feel insignificant.

Scarlett's also trying to juggle sophomore year classes, her lab partner who is being just a little TOO nice, and getting over the boy who broke her heart.

In the midst of all this, her parents drop a bombshell that threatens to change her New York life forever...

Praise for Suite Scarlett:

"Utterly winning, madcap Manhattan face, crafted with a winking, urbane narrative and tight, wry dialogue." - Booklist, starred review

"The authentic charm of the characters and the endearing sweetness of their odd familial relationshipsmake this light read worthwhile." - Kirkus Reviews

"Johnson keeps the laughs coming." - Horn Book
