The President’s Daughter by Kristine Robinson

This book has a ton of typos and the author can’t keep their facts straight. The character Billy is introduced as having “fire engine red” hair and in the next paragraph it says “Billy was beautiful, with her short black hair.”  The main character, Chelsea, has never been with a woman before, yet now she’s in a three-way relationship with two of them (Shane and Billy). Right.
There’s an attempt at being “controversial” by mentioning transgender studies in Chelsea’s Sociology class, but it’s all messed up. “He talks about how the child makes it to puberty, after a lifetime of being raised as a boy, and realizes that instead of being a girl, the child turned teen now identifies as a boy.” Umm, What? And this is supposedly a dig at Chelsea’s situation since her and her two gfs got caught fooling around at a sauna.
Then there’s her dad. He’s a politician who got caught with his secretary and it broke up the family and now he argues with Chelsea all the time. They sort of repair their relationship towards the end with this lovely line from her father “You know that you mean the world to me. And if you want to be in a non hetero-normative relationship with two other women, well then you know what? It looks like I’ll have a whole new demographic to court for votes.” Well, isn’t that sweet? I kept hoping it would get better but it didn’t. I don’t really consider the ending an “HEA,” but I guess it could be one for some people.

I love reading, listening to music, watching wrestling and spending time with my friends and family. I read mostly Young Adult books and I love paranormal books, especially vampire ones. I am originally from Connecticut, but I live in Maryland now. I have a book buying habit and I'm addicted to the book section of my local thrift shop.
