Meg loves to play tennis. She has plenty of friends at the exclusive private school she goes to. She just wishes she got to spend a little more time with her mom, who is an up-and-coming Senator. But when her mom takes her aside for a special talk, she is shocked to discover that Mom is running for President! Can Meg and her family survive this wild ride?
I thought this book was sweet and charming. But it does still talk about real issues - lack of privacy in the lives of the families of politicians, people who can't cope with being around them, and people who just want to use them for a few minutes of fame. I also liked that the relationship between Meg and her mother Katharine was very difficult, not sugarcoated. I think that's pretty typical of teenage/parent relationships. If you enjoy YA fiction, give this one a try. Four stars, and I definitely plan to read the rest of the books in this series.
