Red Girl Blue Boy, by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

The title of the book I read is Red Girl, Blue Boy . It tells the story of two teenagers, Katie Willfield and Drew Reilly, who are tangled up in the lives of their political parents. Katie’s father is running for president of the U.S. as a republican while Drew’s Mom is running as a democrat. This without doubt makes the two enemies; that is until they have a scheduled interview. 

The two find chemistry between each other and this affects the lives of them and their families. Katie has spent her whole life helping her father with his campaign so she has never been able to have life like most kids. She lives her life through politics and stays serious with everything. Drew on the other hand tries to stay out of his mother’s campaign and attempts to live his life as a normal teenager. Once the two meet, they are fascinated with one another. 

Drew and Katie begin to spend more time with each other, becoming friends and quickly escalating to lovers. They bring out a new side from each other and hope that their political differences doesn’t ruin what they have. I deeply enjoyed this book. The author, Lauren Baratz-Logsted did an amazing job with showing the lives of political families. It didn’t really feel like a cliche story line, which i appreciated. She did a good job with keeping the characters true to themselves and with keeping the storyline realistic. I would recommend this book to anyone for it’s not that difficult of a read and keeps the reader interested throughout the book
