Cathy’s Book was literally a word-of-mouth success story, with over 120,000 copies of the groundbreaking, interactive teen novel in print. Perhaps less noticeable was the heart of the book: a good story well told. Now fans of Cathy Vickers will return to the exciting, unpredictable world that made the first book such a success. Cathy was your average high school student-do...more

Here the writer introduce one of my favorite character of the trilogy: Jewel. And, also, I developed thanks to this book one of my greatest fears: the exchange of identity and the stealing of an it. Really, it scares me.
Anyway, I really liked this book
Cathy reißt zu einer Wahrsagerin nach St. Louis, als sie die mysteriöse Jewel trifft. Folge daraus: Ihr Handy und ihr Zeichenblog sind weg, wobei ersteres noch zu einigen Schwierigkeiten führt. Während ihr Freund sich fröhlich testen lässt und in einem Labor für einen weiteren Unsterblichen arbeitet, damit dessen Tochter Cathy nicht an den Hals geht, hängt sich Victors Vater Tsao ihr wieder auf die Fersen - was soll sie nur tun?
Das besondere an dem Buch sind natürlich ...more

Cathy’s Key is the second book of a trilogy, but without a doubt a book that can stand on its own with a really interesting and dynamic plot. Cathy’s Key offers us a highly interactive and visual story accompanied with illustrations and objects (“the evidence”) relevant to the story. That for sure, will be a favorite thing for many readers, as it was for me. This is a modern take on books characte ...more
I really enjoyed reading Cathy’s Key, by Jordan Weisman this book kept me popping right out of my seat. I read the first book (Cathy’s Book) in 7th grade and loved it. I guess the extra little clues that come with the book make it seem as if the story really happened to someone. (The torn up picture, napkin with a kiss on it, or even the birth certificate). In fact if you call the numbers on the book, you will come to find yourself leaving a message on Cathy’s recorder. In the first book we lear...more
I really liked this book because unlike many books in a series ...more
Well, I did enjoy reading about Cathy's many employment failures. She keeps getting fired for various reasons and the reasons are absolutely hilarious. She just can't seem to keep her mouth shut!
There's also an introduction of a new character, Jewel, whom I didn't particularly like. She likes to steal things and then frame others and ac ...more
Jewel fait une entrée fracassante et amène son frère Denny dans la foulée. L’une sera une ennemie et l’autre un allié. A celà, on ajoute Pete, doué en informatique et on retrouve évidemment Emma.
Des personnage secondaires qui sont finalement mieux mis en avant et qui s’intègrent vraiment à l’histoire.
L’intrigue est cependant moins importante que dans le premier tome. Il n’ ...more

I really liked CATHY'S KEY, much more so than CATHY'S BOOK. It takes place six months after Cathy found out that her boyfriend is immortal.
He is gone from her life, she has graduated from high school, and she is trying to find a job. She keeps being fired from her places of employment, which is a running gag in the story. She is now on a bus heading home from St. Louis. She has just seen a psychic immortal who told her to be wary of Tsao and a bomb ...more
But found this book. I picked it-as I often do-b/c i love the cover!!!
its actually a sequel, and the old man behind the counter couldn't figure out what the first book was and or if they had it! i'll try to get it online!!!
Read Kathy's book pretty quickly and only took a couple days to read through this one, a easy quick read. as in the first book loved the art & ...more
I definitely should have read Cathy's Book first, but I kind of liked being dropped into this story the way I was. I really liked the part o ...more
I really like the character Cathy she is very different and a very refreshing person to read about. I felt sorry for her at some points but I have to admit Cathy is anything but o ...more
It all starts of with cathy finding out that she has an imortal boyfriend. how cool is that he's gonna live for ever, to bad Cathy isn't so between trying to have a good relationship with her bf, trying to not become her bf's fathers new love toy and getting her identity stolen Cathy is for a crazy ride. Plus she's out of high school with no job no idea what to do and every job her mom sets her up with she ends up getting f ...more
I got to see more of Victor (it's nice to see him actually showing he cares haha), which made him grow on me a little more. In the first book, I honestly didn't see what she liked about him so much.
His father's role reminded me more of how dramatic hispanic novellas can be lol, but hey, it could happen i guess
And the ending was a fu ...more
I have read this series over and over i have never got bored. My favourite was that you could actually lisen to the convos on the web! I just found out theres a app for it to on ipods!

The story wasn't quite strong enough to carry it, and I would have liked to see more of reader interaction either through more phone options or websites that could be "hacked" using clues in the book. Like how Rowling's pag ...more
however, the ending is so clever, and i really love emma. i kind of wish there would be another book, but i think this is a good place to end, if they do end it here, which they seem to be doing. there are so many crazy twists that are both sad and heart-breaking, and cath ...more
Net zoals deel 1 was ik nu ook weer enorme fan van de tekeningen in het boek. Ik vond de nieuwe personages tof. Ondanks dat ze niet allemaal even vriendelijk zijn.
Ik vond het een leuk verhaal om te lezen. Zeker een aanrader voor mensen die geen 'standaard' (lees: gew ...more
