When Audrey Met Alice

Synopsis (from Amazon):  Living in the White House is like being permanently grounded. Only with better security. 

First Daughter Audrey Rhodes can't wait for the party she has planned. The decorations are all set and the pizza is on its way. But the Secret Service must be out to ruin her life, because they cancel at the last minute, squashing Audrey's chances for making any new friends. What good is having your own bowling alley if you don't have anyone to play with?
Audrey is ready to give up and spend the next four years totally friendless--until she discovers Alice Roosevelt's hidden diary. The former First Daughter's outrageous antics give Audrey a ton of ideas for having fun...and get her into more trouble than she can handle.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  I really like the concept of When Audrey Met Alice.  A great book for 7-8th graders.  I loved that Audrey Mom was the president (not her father)!  When drama of teenage girl, with the added pressures of being the president daughter, is mixed with history makes for a really good read.  

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Yes I would.  I loved the modern times mixed with historical events.  I just realized that The Summer of Lost and Found was written by Rebecca.  I was just looking at it yesterday at Barnes & Noble.

Rebecca Behrens grew up in Wisconsin, studied in Chicago, and now lives with her husband in New York City, where she works as a textbook editor. Rebecca loves writing and reading about girls full of moxie and places full of history. When she's not writing, you can find her running in the park, reading on a beach, or eating a doughnut.
