A hilarious romantic comedy set in New York City from the UK Queen of Teen. With a new job, new friends, and (maybe) a new boyfriend on the horizon, Scarlett's summer is beginning to look a lot more interesting...

Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson

If living in a famous art deco hotel minutes away from Central Park sounds like your idea of a pretty sweet deal - you should talk to Scarlett Martin. Having a hotel for a home really isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when you've got no guests, no money and no prospects for any fun thanks to your parents putting you to work all summer. Luckily for Scarlett, the Hopewell is about to be shaken to its foundations with the arrival of Mrs Amberson, a glamorous travelling socialite who's planning on putting down some roots for a while - and hiring Scarlett as her assistant.


Maureen Johnson paints a vivid portrait of New York City and its bohemian artistic circles in this delightful story of family, friendship and romance ... An engaging romantic comedy that is certain to charm teen readers. Booktrust

About the Author

Maureen Johnson

One of the World Book Day 2014 Authors Maureen Johnson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during a massive snowstorm.

Maureen has written several books for teens as well as contributing to various anthologies. In November 2009 Let It Snow (written in conjunction with John Green and Lauren Myracle) became a New York Times bestseller.

Maureen currently lives in New York, and was recently crowned the 2012 Queen of Teen in the UK.
