Confessions of a First Daughter by Cassidy Calloway

Calloway, Cassidy Confessions of a First Daughter, 224 p. Harper Teen, 2009.  $16.99.  Language: PG (23 swears, no “f”).  Morgan Abbott always manages to make the worst of a good situation – case in point her final speech for Student Body President elections – how would you like to have your arch rival steal your platform word-for-word and then fall out of your skirt and be left standing in your ugly gym shorts (I guess it could have been worse).  Oh – and your mother is the President of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! And your Secret Service code name is Tornado.  Mrogan is so ready do be out of this First Family.  Except that Mom has some very politically delicate business to take care of and Morgan has just volunteered to stand in for her for a week.  This is one case where Morgan had better not screw up.  Oh – did I mention the very hunky agent assigned to Morgan?  Morgan is pretty dang funny!  Her mis-adventures are heart-warming and feel genuine for all of their unbelievability.  I really hope we get to meet her again.  MS, HS – ADVISABLE.
