"The Wrong Side Of Right" by Jenn Marie Thorne tells the story of Kate, who, after her mothers death, finds out that her real father is a candidate for the US presidential election. This novel was unlike anything I've read before. It was fresh, original, and completely real. It told a remarkable story that was well paced and easy to follow but had a complex message. I couldn't put this book down!!!!! While not being an incredibly well known book, this novel is deserving of several awards. The plot is clever, witty, and has a teeny bit of love in the mix that adds flavour to this delectable, compelling story of what happens behind the scenes during an election. Without relying on vampires or outlandish mythical creatures, this is a thought-provoking read that made it to my favourite books list very easily. Jenn Marie Thorne's smashing book really puts everything into perspective-her vivid picture made me feel like I was there, and upon reading, this is a read that'll stay in your mind for a while. 5 stars.
