KIRKUS REVIEW

Like many a teenage daughter, Morgan Abbott finds her mother authoritarian and annoying. However, Morgan is the only one whose mother is also the president of the United States. This means that Morgan is under constant scrutiny, so much so that it’s practically a national emergency when she slips into the prop room to neck with her hunky boyfriend, Konner, a self-serving egotist readers will love to hate. To top it off, Morgan must battle a backbiting classmate and deal with her newly assigned, young secret-service agent, a strict by-the-book type, but, oh, so handsome. The plot comes together when Morgan, who has a talent for acting and is practically her mother’s double, is called upon to impersonate the president so that the great lady can attend a secret high-level negotiation. Can Morgan, a trouble magnet, finally make good? Credibility seekers should go elsewhere, but readers looking for a fun and breezy fantasy that’s full of girl appeal will enjoy the material, right down to its romantic but far-fetched ending. (Fiction. 12 & up)
