The President's Daughter-Ellen Emerson White

Enter Meg Powers, a highly ranked tennis player, skier extraordinaire and sixteen years old. One more thing- daughter of the reputable senator of Massachusetts. Meg is living the life, she likes her friends, her sports, her family, heck she even likes school. Unfortunately for Meg,  her life is about to be turned upside down. Why? Nothing significant, just the tiny part where her Mom decides to run for President- and she's going to win. Meg just knows it. What will the White House be like? Can anyone imagine what it would be like to have maids, cooks and butlers all at your disposal? Probably not. Good thing Meg won't have to.

Meg goes through enormous changes in this book. At her new school in Washington DC, students are practically lining up to be friends with her. She has guards following her every step. Meg's face is in the public eye 24/7. Between reporters, magazines and newspapers, Meg feel's like she'll go crazy. It doesn't help that she fights with her family all the time now either. Will Meg stand strong or crumble in the spotlight?

This book is the first to my favorite series of books. If you can stop turing the pages at full speed, you'll notice the excellent quality of the writing. This is one of the few books that I've read that has a multi-flawed character. Meg can be so whinny and annoying sometimes that I want to just punch her in the face, but it's really the flaws that make the book better. Sometimes, I just get so sick of reading books where the main character is perfect, just everyone else in the world has a problem with them, so it was nice to be able to escape with this book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone who enjoys a good read. I hope the author will continue adding to this series. On a scale of one through ten, I would rate this book at least a nine.
