Interesting MG take on history, real and imagined WAMA follows the fictional first daughter of the first female president as she copes with being an only child in the fishbowl of the White House She gets herself in trouble when she finds the long lost diary of Alice Roosevelt and tries to emulate her eat the world mentality I thought this book would have been better without the introduction of the politically charged issue of gay marriage It was pretty well handled but it always bothers me Interesting MG take on history, real and imagined WAMA follows the fictional first daughter of the

her eat the world mentality I thought this book would have been better without the introduction of the politically charged issue of gay marriage It was pretty well handled but it always bothers me a bit to see an author push a political agenda in books aimed at kids that can t even vote.Probably best for grades 6 and up It wasn t easy to be the First Kid and Audrey was definitely not having a good time because of her status After moving into the White House, Audrey felt as though she were living in a prison Could her life change now that she had access to the private journal of Alice Roosevelt Audrey was a lonely kid With her parents busy working all the time, she didn t really have anyone to talk with Because she didn t have any sibling, she could only play alone at the bowling alley inside the White House It wasn t easy to be the First Kid and Audrey was definitely not having a good time because of her status After moving into the White House, Audrey felt as though she were

anyone to talk with Because she didn t have any sibling, she could only play alone at the bowling alley inside the White House Since she must travel with guards around her at all times, you could imagine how frustrating Audrey must feel as a young teenager Life could be really difficult for a young teen at times and when all adults treated her as though she were a misbehaved child, Audrey felt unheard, misinterpreted and misunderstood.I felt bad for Audrey She wasn t an irresponsible person In fact, she was quite likeable but because the adults were too busy to spend time with her, they often made quick judgments based on what other people hinted about her It was quite unfair and if I were Audrey, I d probably scream and yell and call the adults hypocrites and egomaniacs.Anyway, Audrey was hurt by her parents reactions but she wasn t someone who d do reckless stuff just because she was being scoffed She could be naive at times but honestly, I quite liked her for being a bit imprudent and a little unsophisticated.Reading the private journal of Alice Roosevelt had opened Audrey to becomecreative about who she could become and while not everything that Alice did had a positive influence on her, I liked that Audrey didn t blindly follow every rebellious act that Alice did.The ending seemed fun although there was this a little too good to be true vibe to it but I liked that Audrey was generous about what she could do and achieve as First Kid to help others Originally posted on LeisureReads.comA copy of the book was provided by publisher for review purposes It was ok Great concept, but obvious superficial Maybe anaive reader than I will get a kick out of it, but it s not likely to get reread, I don t imagine, nor pushed on friends I do have to admit that, when I requested it, I was somehow under the impression that it was a picture book I think it would have been better as such Most of the material here is filler, imo And, again, a slightly younger audience, say 6 8 instead of 8 12, would, I believe, enjoy itIt was ok Great concept, but obvious superficial Maybe anaive reader than I will get a kick out of it, but it s not likely to get reread, I

be a plot honestly, most of the book was just audrey acting out so that she could benoticed by her parents although i understand the angst she feels, i just can t really grasp what outcome she had except for ruining a b g platonic relationship that existed.another issue was the gay marriage essay and protest that was brought into the book honestly, the entire LGBTQ part of the novel seemed forced, as if bri did i care for this no, not really.the plot was semi okay, if there could even be a plot honestly, most of the book was just audrey acting out so that she could benoticed by her

and protest that was brought into the book honestly, the entire LGBTQ part of the novel seemed forced, as if bringing in the issues of LGBTQ would strengthen the novel within the LGBTQ community.this is just my take honestly Fun, but ultimately light weight It delves a little too frequently into standard aftermath a of a tweenager s incredibly bad decisions sneaking in a boy sneaking out risqu clothes yelling at parents , exacerbated by doing all of it in the White House Audrey is young and clueless to the point of frustration, though as a thirteen year old she should probably be excused

clueless to the point of frustration, though as a thirteen year old she should probably be excused She is, after all, lead astray by trying to follow the advice of Alice Roosevelt s diary, which seems to have been written by a typical rebellious and boy crazy and flippant teenager who thinks nothing of breaking every possible rule and all available hearts then whining when her parents scold her about it The ending is ultimately a bit too put a bow on it tidy for me, but it and the book on the whole is ultimately charming It s hard not to root for Audrey to find her place and be happy I also appreciate that Audrey chooses to take up the platform of marriage equality And there are certainly some fun and funny moments.I would also venture to say I d like it much better were I a little younger and closer to the target audience On the other hand, a middle schooler would probably also see through all of Audrey s bad ideas pretty quickly I am glad that this was a pick for Dahlia s Book Club, because I really enjoyed it and probably wouldn t have read it otherwise This one was pretty cute and fun, while also having some serious moments Overall, I didn t think this read too young for me It seemedlike it was on the upper end of Middle Grade, since the main character was in 8th grade, and was a teenager.I enjoyed how this really showed that being the president s daughter isn t

who are two busy for you It shows how it can be hard to make friends at a new school because you can t tell if they genuinely are interested in being friends with you as a person, and not just because you re the First Daughter Of course, I haven t had this experience so I don t know what it s really like, but it read very genuine to me.I liked getting to read the fictional diary of Alice Roosevelt She had quite the adventures in her days I liked seeing how things that Audrey did paralleled the life of Alice, and how reading about Alice was really able to help her I liked the sweet romance that developed between Audrey and her friend from school, Quint Since this is MG, the romance was not a big focus, and remained a friendship for a while But once it turned into a romance, it was quite cute and light If you like MG and younger YA, read this book I loved this book eventhan I thought I would and I ve been obsessed with reading it for months Audrey s narration made a very unusual situation being President s daughter into something so cringe ably familiar and easy to relate to crushes and feeling like a thirteen year old outsider, not having enough freedom as you form your own identity Add in the sassy wisdom of Alice Roosevelt, and it s just perfect.In all the best ways, this book reminds me of my favorites when I was in middl I loved this book eventhan I thought I would and I ve

of my favorites when I was in middle school Ella Enchanted, Catherine Called Birdy, ya know the type Not in subject matter, but in the spirited warmly funny protagonist and deft, interesting world building Put another way, I think WHEN AUDREY MET ALICE has the makings of a classic I feel like I should disclose that Rebecca Behrens is a friend of mine, but I swear I d write this exact same review even if this book was written by Denise Denise is a character in the book She sucks The book When Audrey Met Alice was a cute story, but it was a little basic It was the typical story of a 13 year old facing middle school girl problems But, the twist in the story is that she is also the first daughter I think that the story has an inspirational theme with her standing up for herself and believing in herself.
