Eight year old Liberty Porter just moved to a new home because her dad has taken on a new job. He is the president of the U. S.! Now Liberty must begin the school year at a new school and even though she is the First Daughter, things don't go as smoothly as Liberty would like.

It is hard enough trying to fit in and be somewhat cool without having the Secret Service dogging your every step. And what's even more inconvenient is that your bodyguard is not allowed to help you with tests or homework! What a total bummer!

Then there's the additional problem of suspecting that teachers and the other students only like you because you happen to have a famous and powerful father. Poor Liberty must try to figure out a way to discover who her true friends will be and discovering who likes her for herself will be a challenging task.

Of course, Liberty will navigate her way through any and all obstacles because she is The First Daughter! Well written, this series has started out strong and, if nothing else, the reader will learn a little about politics, the White House and the price of fame.

One has to wonder what will happen, though, if next year's national elections result in a new First Family moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
