Sameera Righton (known as "Sparrow") is used to being ordinary. But when her father's campaign for President of the United States starts getting exciting, it's Sparrow's turn in the spotlight. Before she knows it, she's gotten an amazing makeover and is practically a celebrity. But that's not the only change that Sparrow is going to have to go through! Her father's campaign staffers want to turn her into giggly, carefree "Sammy" Righton, an all-American teenager, despite the fact that Sparrow is a brown-skinned girl from Pakistan, adopted by her parents at a young age. But Sparrow's not so intent on this, and she secretly is showing it on her own, awesome blog: sparrowblog.com, where she's always got plenty to say. Will Sparrow's new looks change the person inside? Or will small, spunky, Sparrow be the same as always? This funny book by Mitali Perkins is a wonderful peek inside the world of American politics in the view of a girl who doesn't fit in all the time. First Daughter might appear to be about presidential elections, but it's really about finding out who you really are. An excellent read!
