Reading level: Young Adult
When Kate Quinn’s mother died a year ago in a tragic car accident, Kate assumed that the secret of her father’s identity died along with her. She never expected that she’d learn anything at all about him—especially not from a mob of screaming reporters.
But after a New York Times reporter discovers that the sixteen-year-old Kate is the illegitimate daughter of Senator Mark Cooper, presumptive Republican nominee for President, the press descends—and with it, the Cooper campaign. When Kate agrees to join the Coopers on the campaign trail as part of a desperate attempt at damage control, she’s plunged headlong into the cut-throat world of politics, hoping to both forge a connection with the family she never knew and find some answers about the mother she’s so recently lost.
Billed as The American President for teens, SPIN features Kate's journey along the presidential campaign trail, in a story about romance and betrayal, politics and scandal, friendship and family, and what it means to truly belong.
This sounds awesome! I am fascinated with politics and campaigning, so I can't wait to see what this debut is going to be like.
