Lizzie, Carina, and Hudson now have a new friend, Emma. She is the daughter of a New York senator, and is rebellious. She recently got kicked out of her boarding school, and is forced to go to her brother's school. That's when she meets Lizzie, Carina, and Hudson. At first, Emma hates everything that is going on in her life, and she sort of is unlucky with things. She is getting into more trouble, and gets into arguments, especially with her older brother, Remington. Then one day, Emma speaks at...more

This book was just okay for me as I had a hard time connecting with Emma, the main character. She struck me as a spoiled brat in the beginning of the book. She did grow on me during the progression of the story; she still did some stupid things here and there, but I couldn't help but laugh at her impetuousness. The whole public speaking aspect was well done as well.

There were some plot arcs that didn't sit well with me. For example during the campaign, why in the world would they change their s...more

This Book Is interesting. It talks about the view of the daughter of the New York Governor who is also running for president. Emma Conway is the rebel of the good Conway Family, and also just got expelled from her boarding school in the middle of summer. My Critique for this book is a positive one because It is interesting reading how much pressure even the daughters of running candidates have to go through. She is a brave girl who speak...more

Series: The Daughters (#4)

As always, possible spoilers, so beware.

First Line: Emma Conway stood up, looked carefully around, and stepped away from the clump of bushes in front of Flanner Hall.

The fourth novel in The Daughters series introduces us to Emma Conway, the fifteen year old daughter of Adam Conway, a politician with aspirations to run for president. Emma is sort of a “rebel”. She dyes her hair, w...more

Emma’s dad is a senator who’s considering a presidential bid, and she is NOT feeling it. She has the perfect older brother who’s helping making speeches and Emma’s not even allowed in pictures (she died her hair burgundy). But when he gets sick, Emma gives a speech and becomes an almost-instant sensation and a huge asset to her dad’s campaign. But how long can someone who always says the wrong thing keep saying the right one?

I really enjoy this series, and I think this is my favorite. I wish Liz...more

Emma is in hot water again after getting kicked out of boarding school, so she is returning to New York to attend her brother Remington's super ritzy private school. The school is filled with the rich elite where everyone's parents are someone. Remington is a legend at this school and Emma soon finds out a lot is expected from her and her recently dyed "Burgundy" hair color is the first that has to go since her father is about to declare his candidacy for president. Which Emma kind of tells ever...more

I never thought there would be another book in The Daughters series, quickily becoming one of my favourite series with it's relatable characters and exciting plots, The Daughters series does not disappoint.

The fourth book revolves around the newest Daughter, Emma Conway, daughter of New York Senator, Adam Conway. Emma has always felt the pressure to live up to her family's perfect image and when she accidently tells the media that her father is running for president she is thrown into the whirlw...more

I remembered when I picked up the first book to this series, The Daughters.
The Daughters was a cute, light read that held a sweet message. A message that showed people in order to BE beautiful, you have to believe you ARE beautiful. That, and always listen to your mom when it comes to jobs that she specializes in. :P
The second book to the series, The Daughters Break the Rules, was my favorite book of the four books, and was seen through the eyes of my favorite character of all four girls.

What if you were the daughter of a state senator? You would think your life would totally rock, right? Wrong. From the way Emma Conway sees it, its really bad. She accidently got kicked out of her boarding school,(ok, so what if she snuck out after school hours?) and on top of that, she'll never be as good as Remington, her perfect older brother. But when something she doesn't know about goes wrong with Remington, and her father decides to ru...more

Lizzie, Carina, Hudson, and new girl Emma are the Daughters. They are the daughters of the rich and famous who deal with some pretty funky stuff because of it. Most of the time, the girls are dealing with normal stuff like whether their crush likes them or not, but occasionally a curve ball is thrown their way. Like what happens to Emma, accidentally revealing her dad’s political secrets on national television. Nice one Emma!

Each daughter has a different personality trait. Lizzie is the quiet an...more

And yet another great book from the daughter's series completed; this book sends a really great message saying no matter how you feel always hold your head up high. The main character of this book is Emma Conway, the daughter of the famous Adam Conway. Mr. Conway is the New-York state senate, and is planning to run for president. And while her brother, Remmington, is perfect, with perfect grades, looks, and just about everything else, Emma isn't. She is a rebel, that her family sees as just anot...more

Book Review: THE DAUGHTERS JOIN THE PARTY
By Joanna Philbin
Category: Young Adult Fiction

They didn’t ask for fame. They were born with it.
Emma Conway is a troublemaker. After being caught trying to sneak into a boy’s dorm room, she is kicked out of her posh boarding school and forced to enroll in Chadwick , the private school her oh so perfect type-A brother Remington attends.
She quickly gets absorbe...more

*Review for whole series* **SPOILERS ALERT**

I love love LOVE this series.

Although The Daughters books are set in the glamorous Upper East Side in New York, it isn't the least bit flashy and far out like typical books about private school teens. Instead, it's about something more glam - daughters with famous parents.

Despite this, the four protagonists of the series, Lizzie, Carina, Hudson & Emma, are down-to-earth, funny, rebellious and all around awesome without being stuck up and snobbis...more

The Daughters Join the Party Book Review

The novel, The Daughters Join the Party by Joanna Philbin, is a heartfelt novel about the excitement, thrills, and challenges of being the First Daughter. The main character of this story, Emma Conway, is the daughter of Adam Conway a New York senator who is running for president. Emma never really felt like she fit in with her perfect family because she was always getting into trouble, and it seemed that she coul...more

Have you ever heard someone say, “Everyone’s has at least fifteen minutes of fame”? Well what if instead of fifteen minutes, you were famous your entire life, just because your parents were famous. Joanna Philbin writes the series The Daughters about four girls who are daughters of famous people. This book, The Daughters Join The Party the fourth book in the series, is about a politics daughter.
Emma Conway, she’s outgoing, rebellious, has her own sense of style, and doesn’t want to be told wha...more

Joanna Philbin has established herself as a writer of fun, cheerful young adult novels. The Daughters series features the daughters of four rich and famous families. Unlike most series of rich kids, these girls are "good girls." They each have their flaws and lessons to learn, but by the end of each book, the girls make the right choices and are happy. Each book in the series is told from the point of view of a different girl.

A new girl joins the trio that we met in the first three Daughters se...more

This book is the last book in the Daughters series, from Emma's point of view. Her father is a senator running for president. She has to live up to the expectations of her older brother, who is better than her in a lot of things. She gets put in the spotlight after her father's presidential campaign starts, and she starts to question what image she has and what she wants the public to think. I recommend this book if you like the Daughters series.

Politics and 15 year-olds ... not always a good mix

Emma has always been reckless, constantly getting into trouble by dying her hair or saying rude things to people that are important to her father, the Senate. Emma especially hates being compared to her older brother Remington, the perfect child as Emma would call him. Even though Emma loves her brother, she finds that it's best to stay away from doing or going anywhere that her brother is. But when her career as a speaker in her fathers campaig...more

The Daughters Join The Party by Joanna Philbin is a good book. I really liked how this book was not about an ordinary girl. This book was about a girl whose dad is running for president! It was great that Philbin was able to describe what it is like to live in a politician's family. Emma, the girl whose dad is running for her president, and the rest of her family has no time to see her dad! The only thing that I wish Joanna Philbin changed would be that she would include the rest of Emma’s frien...more

Okay so I thought it was a nice ending to the series but I just could not get into the scene of Emma's life. Everything that happened and was affected just threw me off. I wasn't a huge fan. But I liked how she said shed found. New fam and all how she quoted it was something i could relate to. All and all this book is alright I don't think I quite like it but I certainly don't the it.
Brianna
I thought that it was a good book but I had a problem with adding Emma at first but then she grew on me.
The characters all seem good to me, but the ending just didn't sit well to me. I don't have a lot to say about it, but it wasn't a book I felt the need to skip chapters on, it just wasn't OMG worthy to me.

This was the story of Emma Conway, who I at times liked and at times hated...her older brother tells her that she can be her own worst enemy, and he's write--she was a rebel for the sake of rebellion. She develops a lot over the course of the book, which I enjoyed, and I also liked the development of her once-perfect older brother's character--he spins out of control as their world gets rocked with the announcement of their father's Presidential run. It was a good, realistic picture of what it c...more

This book would mainly be for girls, and it has a lot of drama in it as well. This 15-year-old girl named Emma Conway, her dad is going to run for president and she is dreading it. Her "perfect" older brother Remmington, is acting very weird around his best friend Walker. Emma wonders if they had a fight or something. But once she accidently blurts out that her dad is going to run for president, her life changes in a very big way. Now she's like the perfect child, and her brother has some kind o...more

It was a perfect conclusion to the series. Emma, Lizzie, Carina and Hudson worked together to get through hard times. Philbin is an amazing author, and should never stop writing.
