The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes


The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

For Tess Kendrick, a junior at the elite Hardwicke School in Washington D.C., fixing runs in the family. But Tess has another legacy, too, one that involves power and the making of political dynasties. When Tess is asked to run a classmate’s campaign for student council, she agrees. But when the candidates are children of politicians, even a high school election can involve life-shattering secrets.

Meanwhile, Tess’s guardian has also taken on an impossible case, as a terrorist attack calls into doubt who can–and cannot–be trusted on Capitol Hill. Tess knows better than most that power is currency in D.C., but she’s about to discover first-hand that power always comes with a price.

Other Books in Series:  The Fixer

Character Highlights:

Tess –  Still my girl.  She can deliver an insult LIKE A BOSS.  Between her and Ivy these ladies are straight up my role models.

Asher –  Seriously.  This kid is living his best life.  Having a friend like him in high school would have been a blast.  To think of the things I missed out on!

Overall Thoughts: 

First thought when I finished:  Please tell me there is another book coming?!  It’s so rare to find a contemporary that not only holds my attention but surprises me and makes we want to stay up to find out what happens next.  In my opinion The Long Game carries the same intensity of The Fixer but it some areas surpasses it as well.  There were multiple bombshell revelations, all of which surprised me.  I DIDN’T PREDICT A SINGLE ONE.  This book is crazy pants in the best way and if you haven’t started this series I highly recommend it.
