Cathy's Book by Sean Stewart and Jordan Weisman

Things weren’t so peachy in Cathy’s life before Victor broke up with her. Her father died unexpectedly, she’s failing school, and her best friend is mad at her. But when Cathy decides to investigate Victor’s reasons for ending their relationship, things suddenly go from bad to very, very, very bad as her findings produce more questions than answers. For instance, what does the death of Victor’s co-worker, the strange mark that appeared on Cathy’s arm, and the surreal behavior of several Chinese elders have to do with it?
Through Cathy’s unique and irresistible voice—and lots of proof in the form of letters, photographs, date book entries, telephone numbers readers can call, websites they can access, as well as secrets only a careful reader will be able to decipher—readers will enter a strange and fascinating world where things often aren’t how they appear. 
So first how can a book be bad if it is interactive? In the Cathy's book series each book comes with all of the evidance that Cathy finds in the book! Really fun.
This is a very interesting series because it combines many things that have not previously been combined, but in reality make sense, never aging and Chinese culture for example. Also the interactive part is really fun, and the pages are covered with 2 color pictures that tie into the book, the pictures make sense because Cathy is an artist so she would definately be doodling.
The characters are ok some are kind of sketchy as in they are not really beleveable but that may be the point. But the main character is fun if a little absent minded in my opinon. 
One of the things that I did not like about this book was the fact that things fell into place a little too easily but besides that it was great.


  1. An interactive book, this sounds interesting. I am a bit confused about the color pages though. Great review.
