Daughter of a Political Justice, Vanessa Rothrock thought her life was complicated enough and that was before her mother ran for president! No she has to deal with being a preteen, having gigantic feet, being a total Klutz and now having to be known as the goofy girl with a bodygaurd and no privacy! She hates having to make an appointment to see her own mother and just wants her mom to drop out of the race! Then whe she thinks things cant get any worse a note appears in her locker threating her and her mother if her mom doesnt drop out of the campaign but nothing is going to distract her mother. The amazingly written book shocked me with action and humor! You are not going to want to miss this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Gold Star Award Winner! As the governor's daughter, Vanessa Rothrock already has a complicated life. Not only is she a complete klutz, but she's the only kid in school with a bodyguard, she gets absolutely no privacy, and she has to make an appointment to see her own mother. Things would be much easier if she didn't spend her life in the scrutiny of the public eye, because, whenever in the spotlight, Vanessa will surely trip over her own gigantic feet. Now that it looks like her mom might have a good shot at becoming a presidential candidate, everyone else is scurrying around, and all Vanessa wants is for her mother to drop out of the race. Is it really so wrong to just want your mom there, to see you win the county spelling bee and comfort you in the emergency room after you break your wrist in PE? Then the letter appears in her locker, the one that threatens her to stop her mom's campaign. Frightened that her mother's life might be in danger, Vanessa decides that she has to deter her mom, no matter what. Extremely well-written, this book surprised me with its humor, action, and poignancy. With this winning combination, this is a read you will certainly want on your ticket!Was this review helpful?
