Goodreads: They didn’t ask for fame. They were born with it.
In the third Daughters novel, The Daughters Take the Stage, Hudson found her own place in “the family business,” aka: show business. Now, for the first time, readers will meet Emma Conway, daughter of a powerful New York State Senator.
Emma has never fit into the sweater-set-wearing world of her political family, opting for purple hair and Chuck Taylors to keep herself out of countless photo ops, but when she accidentally lets her father’s presidential plans slip on national television, Emma finds herself thrown into the spotlight. Facing pressure to be the perfect First Daughter-in-training, Emma must learn to speak up for herself and for what she believes in. Thankfully, she has her new friends and fellow daughters – Lizzie, Carina, and Hudson – to help her along the way.
Ope’s Opinion: I read the second one of this series and wasn’t thrilled with it, but already owned the fourth, so I thought I would read it. It is much better then the second one. It is part of the series, but you can read it alone.
This one was focused on Emma and her becoming friends with Lizzie, Carina and Hudson. It was also about her father running for office. It was still a little too woe is me for people with a lot of money.
It reads fast and easy. If you need something to just pass the time, you could pick this one up. All the problems are there, then quickly solved with not very many consequences, so I would not want my teen to read this.
