This was a pretty good story about an orphaned girl who discovers that her biological dad is a super famous senator guy who's running for president.
I liked this book but I didn't love it. I liked Kate, and I liked that she was opinionated and had her own ideas, and I got that she was so desperate for things to work out with her biological dad after the death of her mum.
However, I did think it was a bit odd that despite being raised by a super liberal mum, she was a bit tepid about her dad's right wing politics. It probably helped that her dad was like the least conservative Republican since forever. I don't know a massive amount about American politics and I'm happy to be corrected on this, but I seriously cannot imagine there ever being a Republican presidential candidate who is pro-choice and pro-marriage-equallity.
Speaking of which, Kate was literally the only seventeen year old girl I've ever heard of who had no opinion about abortion and this confused me. It's such an emotive subject, it just felt odd how she skated over it. It felt like the author was trying really hard not to offend anyone by actually expressing an opinion.
I liked Kate's new family and it was nice to see the stepmum being portrayed in a really positive light. It was equally nice to see the politicians on both sides of the political spectrum being equally slimy and machiavellian.
The polt moved quickly and covered a lot of ground around the run-up to an election as well as Kate trying to adjust to her new life.
The romance was okay. Not a whole lot happened, but it was okay.
All in all this was an alright book. Worth a trip to the library for.
