    Sameera

    I absolutely loved this book, I couldn't put it down! The protagonist Sameera is a spunky witty character who finds her true self after being forced to become someone else in order to help her father's campaign for president.

    GREAT BOOK!

    After reading First Daughter:White House rules 'wich I reviewed earlier for this blog', I definately wanted to read Extreme American Makeover. Mitali has created a very original and intelligent story abou a young adult girl, whose live is going to change because her father is running for president of the United States. When you start reading, it is impossible not to become a friend of Sameera and her family. When the crew around her dad creates a blog for Sammy, wich she can't write herself, she wants to start her own blog. And Sameera is smart: when she cannot go outside to explore Washington D.C., because of the paparazzi, she hides in a burka. From the moment you start reading, till the last page, Sameera's story is interesting and very strong and fun! I loved it!
