First days of school can be very awkward when you're the New Girl. Imagine though, if you're not only the New Girl, but also the New First Daughter. Awkward time!

She's getting to know her new school as well as her new house -- umm, that just happens to be the White House. Both MundieTween and I loved reading how Liberty could go down to the chocolate shop in the White House and add chocolate to her lunch.

Liberty is quite a spunky, true-to-life character. Wh
These books (it's a series) have been popular at my library, and I finally decided to read one. I thought this was the first when I picked it up, but Goodreads informs me it's the second.

I understand the popularity. New Girl In Town is fun, easy to get into, and addresses both the things one might wonder about being a first daughter (do chefs prepare all your meals? What's it like having your own Secret Service Agent? What's the in-house chocolate shop like?), and experiences that are common to

Gr 3-5–Liberty faces her first day at a new school in Washington, DC, and, like any fourth grader, she's excited and nervous about making new friends. Her welcoming and friendly nature backfires, however, when she won't join an exclusive threesome of girls in her class. One presidential-like speech later, Liberty points out that she can't be perfect but she does want to be friends with everyone who wants to be friends with her. This book ends with a playdate at the White House and a freeze-dance ...more

I thought the book was great and I just love books about first daughters. The book is about a girl named Liberty, and the first day of school. But along the way she has to face some problems like how people call her mean things and how she tries to hang out with everbody or kids get mad. But also she makes some new friends along the way to. It somtimes it can be a little tricky to be the first daughter because you have all these responibilites that u have to accomplish and treat everyone with ...more

I picked this book up off my library shelf thinking that it would be something similar to talking about the fictious life of a first daughter. I want to check out the first book in the series to see what it talks about in there. In this book, they mention the different people in the white house such as the security guard, the chief of staff, the executive office, and how the first daughter ends up going to school and what happens when she does go to school. It was a very interesting read for me ...more

I liked this book, I liked the characters. But some of it seemed unrealistic. For example, in the end everything works out after Liberty gives a speech about why she wants to be a good friend. Some of the dialogue doesn't sound like kids would actually say it also. Maybe it's because I'm thirteen, maybe not. I would recommend "Liberty Porter, New Girl in Town" by Julia DeVillers to kids between 2nd and 3rd grade!

A continuation of the Liberty Porter, First Daughter series. I really enjoyed this one. Liberty starts her first day at school and has to manage with a variety of responses the the president's daughter being in her class. A few lessons told and learned by other students about treating people, but not too preachy. Can't wait to see what comes in the next book! Hope there is more!

I enjoyed it. It is like an ordinary going to school, and meeting people, but Liberty Porter is the presidents daughter, and she is the First Daughter. She goes to school, and meets lots of people, and they become her friend.

Liberty Porter is going to a new school as 1st daughter.She is really nervous,but her classmates are really nice.Then there is this girl,Halower. She really wants to be best friends with Liberty Porter, but Liberty doesn't want to be only friends with her.
The President's daughter gets ready for her first day in a new school and soon learns that it isn't always easy to make friends, especially when you are so famous. Not my kind of book but very popular with our third and fourth grade girls.

I really enjoyed reading about Liberty, the white house, her pets, and her secret service agent. I liked the rooms in the white house, too.

This book was really good! It was so interesting! But, it could have been longer because DeVillers didn't STRETCH the moment that well.

When I picked this book up at the library I didn't realize it was the 2nd book in the series! Oops! But I really enjoyed reading about what the White House is supposedly like.
