Waiting on Wednesday - Confessions of a First Daughter

I've been fascinated by films, tv shows and novels set in the White House. I've read a couple of mystery series set there but no YA so far so I'm looking forward to this one, Confessions of a First Daughter by Cassidy Calloway, which is out 1 September (US) from Harper Teen.

Morgan is so over being first daughter.

Morgan Abbott has no social life and no privacy, and her one major talent is screwing things up. Unfortunately for Morgan, every mistake makes front page headlines - because her mom is the president of the United States. To top it all off, she's been assigned a brainiac secret service agent who's barely older than she is and won't let her out of his sight (never mind that he's kind of cute). Torture!

But when her mom has to slip away on secret business and needs a decoy to cover for her, Morgan is the only one who can help. With a bit of makeup, a little ingenuity, and a lot of family resemblance, Morgan soon has everyone calling her "Madam President." Can she pull it off? Or will she mess everything up . . . again?

A follow-up is already with the publishers: Secrets of a First Daughter.

Cassidy Calloway is on Twitter.


  1. I think my younger daughter would like this one if it is published ever in UK. There have been quite a few movies about presidents' daughters (can't recall titles....I think one was called First Daughter but could be wrong) but I don't know any teen books on the topic either. I recently read a thriller called First Patient, by Michael Palmer, about the president's physician. Quite good....(mildly OK).

  2. It's listed as just under a fiver on - so could be tempted :). I enjoyed the film First Daughter - more for Buffy's Marc Blucas though!!

  3. Does anyone know when Secrets of a First Daughter is set to be released??

  4. It will be released september of 2010, I'm not sure though
