When this novel starts, Samantha Madison thinks her biggest problem is that she's in love with her sister's boyfriend. When she skips her art class and foils an attempt on the president's life, she finds her problems compounding. This is a compelling story with a strong plot line, a little teen angst, a little romance, and great dialogue--and narrator Ariadne Meyers makes it even better. Every time Meyers mutters "whatever," the listener can almost see Samantha's eyes rolling. Every time Samantha's older sister, Lucy, opens her mouth, the listener--like Samantha herself--can't help but be annoyed. Meyers conveys all Samantha's highs and lows as she learns how to see what's right in front of her, and listeners will be left hoping to hear more from both Samantha and Ariadne Meyers. A.F.
