Waiting on Wednesday: The Wrong Side of Right

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne
Pub. Date: March 17, 2015


Goodreads says, "Kate Quinn’s mom died last year, leaving Kate parentless and reeling. So when the unexpected shows up in her living room, Kate must confront another reality she never thought possible—or thought of at all. Kate does have a father. He’s a powerful politician. And he’s running for U.S. President. Suddenly, Kate’s moving in with a family she never knew she had, joining a campaign in support of a man she hardly knows, and falling for a rebellious boy who may not have the purest motives. This is Kate’s new life. But who is Kate? When what she truly believes flies in the face of the campaign’s talking points, she must decide. Does she turn to the family she barely knows, the boy she knows but doesn’t necessarily trust, or face a third, even scarier option? Set against a backdrop of politics, family, and first love, this is a story of personal responsibility, complicated romance, and trying to discover who you are even as everyone tells you who you should be."
Publishers are describing this book as My Life Next Door meets Princess Diaries. Yes, please! Also, it says for fans of Sarah Dessen, which means it's an auto add to my TBR list. I love the sound of this one and want to read more books that involve political settings. What do you guys think?

  1. I kind of like that the book is about "personal responsibility" and looking at what you truly believe. The presidential campaign angle should be interesting too. I will have to add this to my TBR list. I hadn't heard of it before.

  3. That cover makes my heart smile. And the synopsis sounds very cool. I'm a little perplexed by the MC's name because my favorite HF author's name happens to be Kate Quinn. Weird... ; )

  7. This sounds really good. It's not at all about what I would think judging from the cover.I guess that's why we're not supposed to judge books by covers :) Great pick!

  9. The presidential aspect sounds interesting, I hope they show how having her dad runs for president affects Kate. It can't be easy having a politician for a father. I've heard good things about My Life Next Door and Sarah Dessen, though I haven't read them, or at least finished a book. If it's like them, there should be some sweet romance happening at the end. :) Nice choice, I'll definitely add this to my Goodreads list.

  10. This book sounds really interesting. I'll definitely like the political aspect of it. Hopefully it's done really well and shows how the mc is affected by her father running for president. It definitely can't be easy having a father who's also a politician. Nice choice, this book is definitely on my Goodreads list now. Here's my WoW.

  11. I like a little political intrigue sometimes, but a comparison to My Life Next Door and Sarah Dessen makes me think it's probably not that. It does sound interesting, though, and I do have it on my TBR. Great pick!
