Goodreads Synopsis:

When the vice president resigns and Ellie and Taryn’s parents emerge as the frontrunners, the girls find themselves back in the spotlight.
Ellie could not care less about becoming the Second Daughter, but she knows how much the opportunity to make history means to her mother – and women everywhere. With her family taking center stage, Ellie must decide whether she can put her feelings for Gabe on hold - again.
Taryn, so used to captivating the hearts and minds of everyone she meets, is unbothered by the increased media scrutiny. But an inopportune screw-up has her beholden to an unlikely – and unfriendly – source for help. 
Overnight, Evan has skyrocketed from social pariah to Miss Popular. As she and her reluctant parents adjust to her new lifestyle, the last thing she needs is a front-page scandal.
Brinley can’t stop thinking about her Stowe-bound hook-up…until her father’s intern, Patrick, starts flirting. Is it time to abandon her fling now that she has a more appropriate suitor?
With the second highest office in the land up for grabs, everyone is picking sides. But where does the heart lie when duty, truth, and love collide?

My Thoughts: 

The Cover: I think this cover is my favorite. A D.C. Night, city lights, the Capital Building in the background. Our mysterious legs in red and conservative shoes. I am thinking those are Taryn's legs, as she wore a red dress and plain shoes to the big Dedication Party. Although the dress seems a little short for the possibly second daughter.

The Plot:  Wow, can things get any hotter in a D.C. private school? I think stars are starting to align for these girls. As always, the plot is well written and entertaining. How these girls deal with the pressure and expectation is beyond me. This one has another cliffhanger ending, but one I had really been hoping for. Well, not the cliffhanger, but the outcome.

The Characters: Once again the characters were very well written. I liked that through out each of the 4 books so far, we have gotten to know the characters better. Not all problems are solved in one book, issues that started in previous books are still working out. It is interesting how all of our main characters put their parents careers before their own desires, even when it comes to love. Or at least try.

Is it Worth Reading?:  Oh yes, I very much enjoyed Book 4; it was my favorite book so far. This is the type of series that would make a great t.v. Show. Granted, CW, but there would definitely be an audience for it. Umm, just saying, any producers out there? You guys will have to let me know if you hear anything. And of course, if I hear something, I will definitely let you know. Either way, I recommend the entire Georgetown Academy series to readers of YA contemporary and give Book 4 5/5 crossbows.
