Friday Finds -- 9/4

My Friday Find is Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson. I won a copy of this book from Liz over at BookLover and am really looking forward to reading it. Here is the Barnes and Noble description:

Scarlett Martin has grown up in a most unusual way. Her family owns the Hopewell, a small hotel in the heart of New York City, and Scarlett lives there with her four siblings - Spencer, Lola, and Marlene.When each of the Martins turns fifteen, they are expected to take over the care of a suite in the once elegant, now shabby Art Deco hotel. For Scarlett's fifteenth birthday, she gets both a room called the Empire Suite, and a permanent guest called Mrs. Amberson. Scarlett doesn't quite know what to make of this C-list starlet, world traveler, and aspiring autobiographer who wants to take over her life. And when she meets Eric, an astonishingly gorgeous actor who has just moved to the city, her summer takes a second unexpected turn.

What did you find this Friday? Friday Finds is a meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

After spending a lot of my younger years working for a hotel, this book would be a joy for me to read.

Sounds like a cute premise - is it YA?

Suite Scarlett was so fun -- really light-hearted and, in some ways, magical. I read it around the fourth of July and loved it. Hope you enjoy! :)
