The President's Daughter by Ellen Emerson White Review

"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 Meg’s mother, one of the most prestigious senators in the country, is running for President. And she’s going to win."

This book is the 2008 revision. 

The President's Daughter was an amusing book for bored readers like me. The President's Daughter is a big eye opener. I love books like this. Fictional politics are fun and hilarious to me. 

The writing of the President's Daughter was too bland and boring. I felt that the author could have used some more colorful descriptions. I wished the author went in more details in describing settings and people.

The plot faired better than the writing. Lots of promising twists and exciting turns. I hope the second book is better than the first. 

The ending of the book was okay. 

Meghan Powers is a normal girl, or as normal as she can be. She is the daughter of the fictional Senator Powers. She wants to be normal above everything. She wants to have a normal life. Date normal guys. But, alas, that doesn't happen. Her mother runs from president is, at first, not likely to win. She becomes the president-elected and Meghan is thrown into the limelight as the president-elected's daughter. 

What makes it worse was the guys who are only using Meghan for that limelight. They want their own share. Meghan after that brief but powerful lesson learns to be careful who to date. She learns that family is important. 

In summary, The President's Daughter wasn't a good or bad book. There were some good parts, and bad parts. It was just okay. The President's Daughter was a short read, which took up a hour and a half of my time. (two-hundredish)

Rating: Three out of five.
