Other books in the series: Secrets of a First Daughter

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?


Confessions of a First Daughter was a cute, light read. I finished it the same day I started it, and enjoyed it all the way through. I haven’t read any books about President’s daughters before (I have seen a bunch of movies) so I really liked this one. Morgan was not the stuck up, bratty person you might think the President’s daughter would be like, no that role went to someone else. Brittney was your typical snotty, popular girl who tried to make Morgan’s life miserable, I was really glad karma got her in the end. I think the plot of Confessions of a First Daughter was really unique; the fact that Morgan has to impersonate her mother is a really neat part of the book. In addition, I really liked Hannah (Morgan’s best friend) she was really cool and down to earth. On the other hand I hated Konner, Morgan’s boy friend. It really bothered me how he so obviously was only dating Morgan because she was the President’s daughter, but Morgan was too blind sided by his popularity that she didn’t see the truth.

Morgan’s security guard, Max, was another character I really liked. His mother’s homeless shelter really added a whole new dimension to the novel. Max and Morgan’s relationship was sweet and confusing, but I’m glad how it worked out. The ending was great, but there is going to be a sequel- Secrets of a First Daughter which I’m really eager to read. I hadn’t heard much about Confessions of a First Daughter, but I highly recommend it. A cute, light read that will leave you wanting a sequel, Cassidy Calloway is a great author I’m looking forward to reading more of her books in the future.

If you didn’t notice, the cover is red, white, and blue. The girl’s shoes are red, her dress white, and the title is in blue. I think the cover is adorable and is a great addition to anyone’s collection.

Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
