The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne
Blurb: Kate Quinn’s mom died last year, leaving Kate parentless and reeling. So when the unexpected shows up in her living room, Kate must confront another reality she never thought possible—or thought of at all. Kate does have a father. He’s a powerful politician. And he’s running for U.S. President. Suddenly, Kate’s moving in with a family she never knew she had, joining a campaign in support of a man she hardly knows, and falling for a rebellious boy who may not have the purest motives. This is Kate’s new life. But who is Kate? When what she truly believes flies in the face of the campaign’s talking points, she must decide. Does she turn to the family she barely knows, the boy she knows but doesn’t necessarily trust, or face a third, even scarier option?
Set against a backdrop of politics, family, and first love, this is a story of personal responsibility, complicated romance, and trying to discover who you are even as everyone tells you who you should be.
Review: There are so many things I loved about this book. I absolutely sped through it in one day and I loved it so much I was sad to put it down.
The Wrong Side of Right is about Kate Quinn. Her mother died a year ago, her life has since been uprooted and moved to a different state. And now Senator Mark Cooper, a Republican, is running for president and is also, apparently, Kate’s father. Thrown into a family she knows next to nothing about and a life of politics, Kate’s whole world is turned upside down.
One of the main things I loved about this book is that it’s about family. There’s not a lot of romance and I enjoyed that. It’s about the relationship between a father and a daughter who are just getting to know each other.
Mark running for president causes a lot of problems in the Cooper household and not just for Kate. As a father and a husband, Mark is detached. He’s career focused which puts a strain on the new and already tense relationship he has with Kate.
There is a love interest for Kate and his name is Andy. Andy is the son of the current president which us obviously going to cause some problems for the pair. Though there was not a whole lot romance, what was in there I enjoyed immensely.
There was some serious character development in the story for all the characters. They all grew and learnt, ending in a conclusion that was pretty great.
This book had me joyful and angry and on the verge of tears constantly.
I found the plot to be unique and I was captivated from the very beginning.
The Wrong Side of Right was a story of growth, love and family; and I am so incredibly glad because Kate and Mark and Meg and Andy and all the others will stay with me for a long time.
