Scarlett Martin has grown up in a most unusual way. Her family owns the Hopewell, a small Art Deco hotel in the heart of New York City. When each of the Martins turns fifteen, they are expected to take over the care of a suite. For Scarlett s fifteenth birthday, she gets both a room called the Empire Suite and a permanent guest named Mrs. Amberson. Scarlett doesn t quite know what to make of this C-list starlet and world traveler. And when she meets Eric, an astonishingly gorgeous actor who has just moved to the city, her summer takes a second unexpected turn. Before the summer is over, Scarlett will have to survive a whirlwind of thievery and romantic missteps. But in the city where anything can happen, she just might be able to pull it off. I can t wait until my room at the Hopewell is ready. Meg Cabot This book is made of funny and whimsical deliciousness (really, lick a page and taste for yourself). Libba Bray I couldn t put it down. Michele Jaffe I loved it E. Lockhart An utterly winning, madcap Manhattan farce, crafted with a winking, urbane narrative and tight, wry dialogue. ALA Booklist, starred review"
