Cathy Vickers is back in the sequel to the New York Times Best Seller, Cathy's Book. Check out Kidzworld's review of Cathy's Key.
"I" Is for ImmortalIt's been six months since Cathy discovered her boyfriend Victor is immortal. Yeah, that's right - immortal, as in he doesn't die. Ever. Unfortunately, he's forced to work for Ancestor Lu, the most powerful immortal in the world who wants to give the secret of eternal life to everyone - and will kill anyone who gets in his way. So in order to protect Cathy, Victor makes a deal to remain locked up in a secret lab and be someone's guinea pig in order to discover the key to immortality - and that is a major obstacle when it comes to dating.
While Cathy is trying to figure out how she and Victor can be together, she runs into her usual mess of troubles. First, her journal is stolen by a girl named Jewel who isn't as precious as her name. Then she learns her father, who died of a heart attack two years ago, may actually have been murdered! Oh, and did we mention that Cathy is being stalked by her boyfriend's father cuz he wants to marry her? Talk about gross. And if he can't marry Cathy, he'll kill her. Talk about scary. Can Cathy and Victor's love withstand more murders, mysteries and even immortality?
Fans of Cathy's Book should definitely check out the second story in Cathy's adventures. Cool illustrations fill the margins of Cathy's Key. Plus, this interactive novel comes with lots of "evidence" like letters, drawings, a Chinese coin necklace, MySpace blogs, and real websites you can visit to submit your own artwork to Cathy's art gallery!
