The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne (DEBUT RELEASE)
(expected publication March 17th, 2015 by Dial)

Fans of Sarah Dessen and Huntley Fitzpatrick will enjoy this smart debut young adult novel, equal parts My Life Next Door and The Princess Diaries.

Kate Quinn’s mom died unexpectedly last year, leaving Kate grasping. But when the totally unexpected shows up in her living room, Kate must confront another reality she never thought possible—or thought of at all. Moving in with a politically powerful family she never knew she had, joining a presidential campaign in support of a man she barely knows, and falling for a rebellious boy who may not have the purest motives—this is Kate’s new life. But who is Kate? When what she truly believes flies in the face of the campaign’s talking points, Kate must decide. Does she turn to the family she barely knows, the boy she knows but doesn’t necessarily trust, or face a third, even scarier option?

Set against a backdrop of politics and family conflict, this is a story of personal responsibility, delicious, complicated romance, and trying to discover who you are even as everyone tells you who you should be.


PERFECT FOR FANS OF SARAH DESSEN? 


COMPARISON TO THE PRINCESS DIARIES



SETTING THAT IS LINKED TO POLITICS

  11. I am definitely looking forward to this one! I am pretty picky about contemporary, but I love that this one is a lot about finding yourself versus what everyone else wants of you, which I think a lot of people (myself included!) can relate to. Great pick!

    1. I definitely agree with you - the coming-of-age stories with a little bit of romance in the mix are the best. And this is set in a group of people that deal with politics, which I find extremely interesting, because I love political dramas of all kinds :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I didn't even notice the map before you mentioned it - I made the post with my phone, so I did not see the picture of the cover very largely. But oh wow, there indeed is a map there :) Thanks for pointing that out :)

      And thanks for stopping by!

  15. Added to the tbr right after the first sentence because hello, who doesn't love Sarah Dessen! Also, I haven't read much books with a political backdrop, so this should be very interesting! Though why 2015? So long...
    Thanks for visiting =)
