The Wrong Side of Right
Jenn Marie Thorne
Expected Publication: March 17, 2015
Genre: YA Contemporary
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—plus a dash of Aaron Sorkin.

Kate Quinn’s mom died last year, leaving Kate parentless and reeling. So when the unexpected shows up in her living room, Kate must confront another reality she never thought possible—or thought of at all. Kate does have a father. He’s a powerful politician. And he’s running for U.S. President. Suddenly, Kate’s moving in with a family she never knew she had, joining a campaign in support of a man she hardly 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, she 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, family, and first love, this is a story of personal responsibility, complicated romance, and trying to discover who you are even as everyone tells you who you should be.
It's a very colorful cover. A cover that got my attention. I occasionally read contemporary YA and marketing this as part Princess Diaries (I love the movies, not the books. Mia annoyed me in the books) is a good move. It will be interesting to read about Kate as she navigates the tangled web of politics, figures into a new family dynamic and puzzle over a boy.

  3. I'm so excited for this book because of the political aspects. I think it's really cool idea to see how she navigates this potentially nasty and backstabbing world, and to see her try to figure out what she really believes in. Great pick!!

    This week I'm WoW-ing Princess of Thorns!
