I bought this book for my Election unit, it's the last in a series of books about a girl whose mom runs for and becomes President. The author or one of her close relatives MUST have gone to Williams, because she is intimately aware of the ins and outs of campus life (in the book, the President's daughter goes away to Williams). She is in Sage D, she has JAs, they get coffee and sandwiches on Spring Street, she takes Psych 101 in the Bronfman auditorium. . . it was an out of body experience to read. Seriously.
Obviously I liked reading it because of the Williams connection, but it was also an emotional, powerful read. It's probably not a middle school book, (not because of content or anything) but because in terms of reading level it's probably too hard for them to understand. For this unit I read another book in this series as well, but I probably won't use them for the whole class. Some of my girls are higher level readers and will probably enjoy them.
