    Hannah just met Mathali!

    Today, I met Mathali Parkins! She seemed like a wonderful person and she oozed charisma. Her website, "The fire escape" is up on the web. Im not sure whether this is her first published book, but if it is, the she said it took 11 years to be published and 22 rejections! Inspireful, right?

    Reviewed by Harmony for

    In the second book of the FIRST DAUGHTER series, Sameera is unpacking boxes and exploring the White House with her cousin, Miranda. Sameera loves living in the White House. She gets to explore, learn to waltz, and she stills keeps writing in her blog. <BR/><BR/>But she's also beginning to realize that life in the White House may not be a fairy tale. Bobby, her friend and the guy she likes, stopped calling after her dad became President. When she learns it's because of religious beliefs, she's outraged, just as Bobby is. <BR/><BR/>There's also a comment left on her blog that leaves her wondering if she really could survive in the real world. She soon hatches a plan to find out -- and it seems that to make life a fairy tale, people have to be willing to take some chances. <BR/><BR/>To be honest, I love all of those movies about the President's daughter (Chasing Liberty especially), so I was sure I'd love a series of books about the First Daughter, too. I was right! <BR/><BR/>This book was great. Sameera is one of the best characters I've read about in a while. She's spirited and daring, but she's also honest and she knows when to stop. All of the other characters were amazing, too. WHITE HOUSE RULES is a fun, quirky read and I'd recommend it to anyone, even if you're not a fan of these types of movies.

    First Class!

    Living in the White House, i can't imagine anyone who doesn't want that. In the second book in the First Daughter series by Mitali Perkins, First Daughter Sameera presidential parents, cousin Miranda and dog Jingle move into the White House. Sameera has to say goodbye to Bobby, who is moving to India to see his ill grandfather for the last time. Sameera hopes he will call or mail her..but she has to be very patient. Sameera's blog is very popular, but there are commenters who have the opinion that she is just a pampered and spoiled First Daughter. It is also great to read when Sameera and her mum go undercover to visit a public school, because Sameera really wants a REAL school to go to, instead of a private school and tutor. and will everything will be happy in the end with her and Bobby? This was just a great book! It is not the usual ya/teen fiction. This book has a message and a deaper meaning. It is also a book with message for better understanding of other cultures and that is what i really like to read! 'since i was a kid , i am always interested in learning about other cultures' I am looking forward to read the other two books in the series, and hope to read the other books of Mitali too!
