Publisher Comments:

After ten months of living in the White House, seventeen-year old Meg Powers knew she should be used to the pressures of life in the spotlight—but she wasnt.

     In addition to the usual senior year worries—college applications and Josh, her first serious boyfriend—Meg had to live up to what was expected from the Presidents daughter. She had to suppress her sense of humor and watch the way she dressed and spoke. And she had to try to have a normal relationship with Josh despite intrusions by reporters and secret service agents who followed her everywhere.

     Then, just when everything was already so difficult, a shocking attack on her mother makes life in the White House even more impossible. Meg, her father, and her two younger brothers find they must turn to one another for solace and support—while her mothers life hangs in the balance.

Review:

"Meg, now a junior at an elite D.C. private school, has more or less adjusted to the constant scrutiny of being First Daughter and dealing with the Secret Service when a would-be assassin seriously injures her mother. White seems to understand the workings of the White House as well as any Beltway insider, and she imagines Meg's complicated responses with psychological insight and grim humor — think Cynthia Voigt crossed with Meg Cabot. Here is Meg, finding a photo of herself in a news magazine, taken as she sits alone in a hospital corridor, face buried in her hands: 'The First Daughter in a moment of private grief, the caption said. And it was private. It didn't seem right that they could publish that.... The kind of picture that was going to show up in Year-in-Review issues.' Nothing is easy or glib: the dramas, Meg's and the entire family's, are explored slowly, sometimes elliptically, invariably rivetingly. Ages 12 — up."
