Kristen Evey - Ooo, I SO want to read this. I’ll have to check and see if my library system has it. I used to be so enamored with stories about presidents, before I became old and cynical. 🙁 Thanks for the review Estelle.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - It’s the first time I’ve heard of this book, and trust me when I say that it sounds absolutely fascinating! I think it would be interesting to see how the relationships between the characters are handled. Plus, it’s always cool to read about kids of politicians, and how they handle their parent’s position and busy schedules.

(Also, I grew up in the DC area and we were always there when I was a kid. I LOVED IT.)

But also like something I would love. I like snarky! And what good timing for this post 🙂
