The Wrong Side of Right ~Review

"It's amazing how much one person
can change the world, 
even if they don't know 
they're doing it." 

Back of Book:
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?

Forbidden romance on the campaign trail..... yes please. I'm not a big fan of politics. It causes to much fighting in real life so I tend to stay clear. I read this in the middle of the campaigning for the 2016 election. This was a nice break from reality.

It was a new spin on the classic, Romeo and Juliet, forbidden love. You have two character from the opposing party that start to fall for each other. Politics aside for a moment, I loved Kate. She was thrown into this new world when she finds out her father in one of the candidates. She grew up without him so it was interesting to see how she reacted to the sudden change.

My one critique of this book is that Kate's father was pretty distasteful. I understand that he was busy with the campaign and not all there for not only Kate but his wife and other children either, but come on..... He could have put a little effort into it.

Aside from that, I did still love the book. I got the cover with the flag on it and I thought it was pretty cute. I would recommend this book if you are looking for something a little more light.

I did enjoy the little romance that was going on, though honestly most of the time I was a little skeptical. Though towards the end of the book, I did enjoy it a little more. I am happy with how it ended and I think it was summed up perfectly. I didn't feel empty once I finished it. There are some books that I just want more and more, but this wasn't one of them
