Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sixteen-year-old Meghan Powers likes her life just the way it is. She likes living in Massachusetts. She likes her school. And she has plenty of friends. But all that is about to change. Because Megs mother, one of the most prestigious senators in the country, is running for President. And shes going to win.

Review:

"Katharine Vaughn Powers, a Democratic senator from Massachusetts with a sterling New England pedigree, is so morally strong that during her (successful) presidential campaign, her 15-year-old daughter, Meg, quietly wonders if she isn't too good to be true. 'Your mother is absolutely, totally, almost sickeningly honest,' her father reassures her. She's also beautiful, chic, witty, brilliant and, on top of it, a believable character. White pulls off this not inconsiderable feat by viewing her through Meg's critical eyes, letting Meg weigh her mother's ambition against her unspoken wishes for a more attentive mother. The author leaves it to readers to observe how closely Meg resembles the woman she ironically thinks of as the Leader of the Free World; Meg herself is too busy making cynical jokes at her own expense, learning White House protocol and keeping her equally intelligent younger brothers in line. Ages 12 — up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old Meghan Powers likes her life just the way it is. However, her life is about to change. Meg's mother, one of the most prestigious Senators in the country, is running for President--and she's going to win.
