My pick of the week is...
The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Publication Date: June 7, 2016
Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's
Reading Level: Young Adult
Tess Kendrick, teen fixer extraordinaire, returns in a pulse-pounding thriller about a deadly conspiracy at the heart of Washington.

For Tess Kendrick, a junior at the elite Hardwicke School in Washington D.C., fixing runs in the family. But Tess has another legacy, too, one that involves power and the making of political dynasties. When Tess is asked to run a classmate's campaign for student council, she agrees. But when the candidates are children of politicians, even a high school election can involve life-shattering secrets.

Meanwhile, Tess's guardian has also taken on an impossible case, as a terrorist attack calls into doubt who can--and cannot--be trusted on Capitol Hill. Tess knows better than most that power is currency in D.C., but she's about to discover first-hand that power always comes with a price.

Perfect for fans of Harlan Coben and Ally Carter, the second book in this thrilling series will leave readers breathless.

Why I Am Waiting

I absolutely adored this book's predecessor, THE FIXER. It was witty and unique and had a kickass heroine that reminded me a lot of Veronica Mars. But, realistically, any book pitched as [insert anything here] crossed with Veronica Mars is going to get attention from me because I am a huge marshmallow. It just helps that this series is 100% deserving of the hype. BRING ON BOOK TWO! I am ready for you!


Are you equally as excited for this book as me? Is there another book you are even more excited about? Please share your thoughts with me below!
