New start or not, there was a line to be drawn, and that line was singing musicals to yourself as serious psychological motivation. p. 13While this was a thoroughly enjoyable and very Maureen Johnson book, let me say upfront that I don't care for either Max or Eric and I hope that Scarlett doesn't end up with either. Much like the love triangle from The Hunger Games is unnecessary so is the one set up for Scarlett. Maybe that is just me, but I don't like either one of the boys and Scarlett has no real reason to either. But then she's a teenager. Crazy things happen when you are a teenager.
Beyond that, I liked this sequel to Suite Scarlett. It was sweet and funny and I always like the family dynamic among the Martins. They are a great, very real family. Spencer is, of course, my favorite sibling of Scarlett's. He is just so awesome and he and Scarlett are a great team. I was glad there was less Marlene and more Lola though. And there was just the right amount of Mrs. Amberson. She still reminds me of Auntie Mame though.
I'm not entirely sure of where the storyline of this series is going. The first one dealt with Scarlett meeting Eric and Hamlet and all. Scarlett Fever had more to do with Scarlett at school and working with Mrs. Amberson and moving the characters around. But I have no idea where any of this is going. Hopefully somewhere interesting.
