    Set in San Francisco this mystery follows Cathy Vickers a hotheaded high school artist who enjoys meddling She's just been dumped by her older boyfriend Victor Chan While investigating her ex suspicious events lead Cathy into an investigation involving Chinese legends a bit of biotech and other shady dealings Told in journal formatI had a lot of fun reading this book and looking at the supplemental material As an Alternate Reality Game ARG book you're given various clues to further explore the story Clues include marriage and death certificates a family tree letters newspaper clippings photos drawings and much By calling phone numbers and checking out websites listed throughout the book you can discover new clues and hear events from the book and some scenes not included in the story A few gripes Product placement The book publisher has insisted that no money was received from CoverGirl and Beinggirlcom ie TampaxAlways but I found their inclusion jarring And really would most people journal their exact brand of lipstick used? Annoying The family tree is missing people which makes some of the accompanying clues confusing It should include Frannie's dead sons Victor's supposed to be in his early 20s but the photos of him make him look thirty or older In fact he kinda looks like Ming Tsai Weird I guessed the immortality angle pretty early into the book Saw that one coming a mile away The final showdown scene was confusing Why did Lu need Victor? Since Lu and some of his family members are immortal couldn't he just use tissue samples from himselfthem? Is Victor special because he had immortality bestowed on him in a non genetic way? Not clear at all

    I bought this book because the art is amazing but now that I begun reading it the story is actually gripping But the best thing about this book is the design art and the gifts Every illustration is related to what Cathy is writing in her journal And the gifts are all clues to solving what is the nature of VictorWhen you begin reading you just have to know everything that will happen What is great about the book is that it is fast paced and you can finish it in one sitting and it is very exciting You just have to know what Victor and the paper man and Tsao are That was a great first book though Cathy and Victor are not your average heroes they are not heroic they are very flawed but very humanAt the end you see Emma telling Cathy at her 18th birthday that the police will come uestioning her now that Victor and Lu have fled Cathy asked her what should she do Emma said print out all your diary with every single evidence you've collected and show them everything otherwise they won't believe anythingI think they won't buy it even with everything inside the diary they might think it's a young girl's fantasyAnyway the war of the immortals has just begun all in order to stop death and time Can't wait to read book 2 Cathy's Key

    This book gets 5 stars for being the most immersive reading experience that I've had in uite some time From the plethora of clues stuffed in the front pocket of the diary to the intricate doodles that decorate the diary’s narrative this read is uniue Newspaper clippings Chinese restaurant menus torn of pieces of a photograph an actual napkin with a lip print these are just some of the amazing extras that are provided to the reader as “proof” of the story If that isn’t enough try calling some of the characters’ phone numbers YES YOU CAN CALL REAL PHONE NUMBERS to listen to the voicemail records and if you are a diligent reader you can find the clues to the characters’ pass codes to access their messages Internet search engine use is encouraged throughout the book; Cathy suggests Googling certain terms in her own diary All and all it wraps the reader in a new reality and makes the story authentic in ways that merely reading the book would not Cathy’s Diary is an experience of sorts an experiment in storytelling I for one loved it Cathy is a seventeen year old aspiring sketch artist who is reeling from being recently dumped by her mysterious older boyfriend Victor With the help of her best friend Emma Cathy sets out to investigate the uncertainties surrounding the break up What she discovers however is complicated and other worldly than she could even imagine In fact the entire narrative is told through her journal – left for Emma to discover in the event that Cathy disappears For all the great things I loved about this book I have several rather large complaints Fortunately these complaints don’t outweigh the merits of this book 1 Advertising The book has blatant and repeated references to CoverGirl cosmetics – exact lipstick and mascara shades are scattered throughout the book At times this can seem a direct advertisement for makeup – which works against everything the author attempted to create Yes Cathy is a teenage girl but no most teenage girls don’t meticulously record exact shades of makeup in their journal 2 The length It is short Too short I wanted 3 The ending – in particular Victor’s secret that is revealed through Cathy’s persistent detective work I let out a huge groan when I discovered what he was hiding Without delving into too much detail or spoilers I’ll say the paranormal makes an appearance – bringing this book that tried so hard to be realistic and immersive into the territory of science fiction and fantasy I like those genres but nestled among the fine details of this story it felt like a radical departure Something hoaxyThat said I’ve got the second in this series on my to read list Perhaps I’m inviting disappointment but I loved the whole concept of this first book too much to ignore the rest of the series

    It's a good book I love how you can call those numbers and when you call there'll be a like a voice mail and that specific character will be talking It's sort of weird but really cool I also liked the drawings on the book and the little packet with a lot of information I liked the book

    The concept of this series is so original I loved it

    Three stars because while I adored these books as a kid view spoiler once you're in your twenties you start to realize how gross the whole teenage girl dating immoral two hundred year old man thing is Also even if he actually were twenty five Victor is still kind of a creep I'm sorry I said it hide spoiler

    I caught this one on the bargain shelf at Barnes and Noble The whole packaging just drew me in not to mention the 6 price The drawings the package of stuff at the beginning the whole journal set up For the price I decided to give it a tryWell this was definitely an interesting one I loved Cathy's voice even though her persistence in the whole situation got a little grating every once in a while I have to agree with her mom in the you better find a rich guy to support you mantra because of her tendency to brush off her studies What can I say? I'm a school person And in a world where the Bachelor's degree is the new high school diploma trashing out on school to dream and stalk an ex boyfriend is not the best of ideas I'm a creative dreamy type of person but I'm not deluded enough to think my dreaming will pay my bills So the story tweaked that logical side of my brain every so often But not nearly enough to give up on it Not even closeI really liked all of the characters especially Mr Tsao but Emma well I didn't see what Cathy saw in her Her ego maniacal insistence to carry out her 3030 plan at the expense of Cathy I didn't see that I'm there for you now you need to be there for me type of thing Offering a helping hand is one thing Offering yourself up to marry a rich psycho just to help your friend fulfill her superficial dream of being rich so she doesn't have to be poor is a little much Wasn't too fond of that dynamicBut aside from that it was a really interesting story I kept getting really frustrated because I wanted information and explanation that what we were given but thus is the burden of remaining in first person We only know what Cathy knows and how frustrating it must be for her being in the middle of it I was right there with her the entire time especially every time she went to San Francisco I love San Francisco I blew through this book because I just kept wanting to find out what was going to happen next And I love the set up of the entries and their little titlesI love the little doodles throughout the book and I even pulled up some of the websites in all the paperwork that came with the book What I especially liked was the ending SO didn't see that one coming I won't spoil it but what I will say is I love the scientific aspect of a very prevalent trope in a saturated YA market It was very refreshing especially the build up to it all It leads you down one road only to have a bum rusher come along and thrust you into another lane at the very last second Very awesomeIf you can find this in the bargain bin like I did I highly recommend snatching it up If not buy it anyway It's money well spent

    This book is the start of me trying to read all of the books I own that I haven't read yet which let me say is a lotNow I don't know what I should have expected but it was not what I got The books seems like an artsy diary that even comes with art in a package that goes along with the story Because of the way it was set up I assumed this would be some a young adult contemporary but I definitely missed the mark Since I can't say much about what happens because of plot twists I will just say you get to know how Chinatown in San Francisco is layed out really wellIn terms of characters I was not a fan other any of them The main character Cathy is someone who is very morally ambiguious and does not take breakups very well She breaks into not only her ex boyfriends house but also a PLANE HANGAR AND A HIGH SECURITY CORPORATION All for the fact that her boyfriend broke up with her for no real reason And what does she do at these places? Of course sneak through all of his stuck and take every single thing that seems important to him and not to herAside from Cathy we have Emma a rich Chinese AmericanBritish it wasn't clarified why she had a Vritish accent? who is the stereotypical nerdy asian cliche and then when bad things happen she becomes the most materialistic and selfish person ever she eventually just helps Cathy so that she can get Cathy's ex boyfriend's money Sounss like great friendship right there Other than these two main characters the rest of the characters are not well developed and sort of thrown all over the place They are only used when convenient to the plot which is also thrown all over the placeBut even though this story isn't organized very well it was still interesting and made you extremely curious as to what is really happening

    First I loved the artwork and the creativity But the plot didn't really grip me and want me to keep reading It reminded me a little of Twilight??? I am unsure if I will pick up the second book but the artwork is awesome
