"A cute romance"
After two years as the First Daughter, Jocelyn
Wakefield cannot stand being the paragon of behavior that
she must be while her father occupies the White House.
Needing some breathing room, Jocelyn decides to escape the

Jane Doe American.
With the help of her grandmother, non-Jocelyn escapes
her White House prison only to crash into political
columnist Grady Tucker, who could easily destroy more than

the horrific terrorists' incidents the First Daughter's
actions now seem dangerous. Being from the Bronx, having
been to the Twins, and having a beloved cousin Marion
residing within a few blocks while not knowing how she is
doing, I know the fears and anguish. My prayers go out to
