Tracy Flick Can't Win | Tom Perrotta
post image

A fitting continuation of a favorite character‘s story. Perrotta knocks this sequel to Election out of the park!

Life hasn‘t gone as expected for Tracy Flick, and, like many of us in early middle age, she‘s taking stock of her history and life choices. The principal of her school is retiring. Having been his #2 for years, she is the obvious choice to replace him. However, school politics may once again interfere with Tracy‘s plans.

I LOVED this book so very much. I was initially bummed that I (unintentionally) picked up a new trilogy where the other 2 books are not done/released because I enjoy a good binge read…but boy, oh boy, am I glad I continued to read on! I haven never identified or loved a character like Dawsons amazingly depicted, Niamiah. SERIOUSLY! HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT FOR #2!?

This political comedy gave me the giggles and worked great on audio!

Longtime NYC Congresswoman Nancy‘s rebellious daughter threw a wrench into her Senate campaign. Greta was caught throwing a bottle at a protest while mugging for the camera. Her brother thinks he‘s retired from being their mom‘s #2, but she calls in a favor and asks him to find Greta in Paris. Meanwhile her newbie campaign manager tries to deal with the fallout.

Cinfhen Sounds fun!! 4d

I was not expecting to enjoy this one as much as I did. This is not a book I think I would have picked up on my own, but am glad I read it.
The story line was just interesting enough to keep in me engaged and having to know what comes next.
The end not at all what I expected, and I have the audio of #2 on hold with the library.

1. Vie's mother in the Hollow Folk series by Gregory Ashe. She never physically appears in the books, but the effect of her abuse on Vie shatters him for a long while.

2. Johnny and Dallas from The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

3. Gary Braunbeck and formerly from Ohio @braddsibbersen. Both write horror, among other genres.

@SusanLee thanks for the tag

#1 crime fiction, more like those old black and white crime films set in Chicago and such

#2 I don't read many crime stories, and I don't classify PD James as noir fiction, so 🤷

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 5d

Camp Tiger | Susan Choi

This was an interesting children's book. I was not too sure what the Tiger represented at first but I think he symbolized the main character's growth. I loved the illustrations. They were so beautiful!
