Welcome, Ellen Emerson White!

Join us, readergirlz, in welcoming Ellen Emerson White and her amazing book Long May She Reign!

Meg Powers is the daughter of the President of the United States. She's about to enter her first year of college. She's living through the worst year of her life. Last June, Meg was kidnapped by terrorists. She survived the unthinkable, the stuff of nightmares. Her captor is still at large. Ahead of her is the grueling physical therapy to heal her broken body; the challenge of leaving the safety of the White House for her freshman year at college. Will she ever forgive her mother, the President, for her "cannot, have not and will not negotiate with terrorists" stance - even when it came to her own daughter? And more difficult still, can Meg forgive herself for having the strength, the intelligence and the wit to survive?

This is the fourth book in The President's Daughter Series about Meg Powers. Read them all:
- Long Live the Queen
- White House Autumn
- The President's Daughter
- Long May She Reign

"[R]ichly drawn characters, dry humor, dead-on dialogue." - Booklist

This book is so powerful. I cannot wait to hear what others think about it - and about physical injuries, politics, education, family, rehabilitation, all of the topics the book touches on!

It's great to see that Ellen Emerson White is still writing, I read one of her books when I was younger, Best Friends or What Are Friends For was the title I think. I look forward to reading her new series. :)
