“A crisply authoritative first-person narration and a plot line shot through with glimmers of fiercest hope make the fourth installation of the President's Daughter series a novel to luxuriate in.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review
“...Meg embarks on her first year of college with the courage, wit, and strength of character seldom seen in so young a heroine. The novel is most effective in dealing with her chilling recollections of what happened and her fear that it will happen again....The dynamics of a family coping with crisis are also well defined....Meg shows readers that despite any problem they may encounter, life is still worth fighting for. All is all, this is an intense, suspenseful, and stirring read.” ―School Library Journal
“What really makes the novel work are White's richly drawn characters, dry humor, dead-on dialogue, and expert exploration of Meg's post-traumatic stress.” ―Booklist
“...a moving story of rehabilitation, of college friendships and romance, and of a family healing from its many psychological wounds.” ―KLIATT
“Meg's ordeal and celebrity status have built-in voyeur appeal, and the hip dialogue will hook teens....Meg's character and personality will propel readers through hundreds of pages....a thought-provoking read...” ―VOYA
“...NO, you don't have to read the first 3 books to read the last. But, having read the last, you'll want to read the first 3.” ―A Chair, A Fireplace & A Tea Cozy (blog)
“Reading Long May She Reign was like catching up with an old friend.” ―cornerbooks (blog)
Meg Powers is the daughter of the President of the United States. She's about to start college. She's living through the worst year of her life. In June, Meg was kidnapped by terrorists―brutalized, starved, and left for dead. She was shackled in a deserted mine shaft and had to smash the bones in her own hand to escape.
Meg Powers survived the unthinkable. Ahead of her is the grueling physical therapy to heal her broken body, and the challenge of leaving the safety of the White House for her freshman year at college.
But harder still than the physical and social challenges ahead are her shattered sense of self and her family. Will she ever forgive her mother, the President, for her "can not, have not, and will not negotiate with terrorists" stance―even when it came to her own daughter? And, can Meg forgive herself for having the strength, the intelligence, and the wit to survive?
In a brilliant tour de force, Ellen Emerson White tells her most ambitious and intense story about a most unlikely, but deeply affecting, heroine.
Ellen Emerson White started writing about Meg Powers in The President's Daughter and continued in White House Autumn and Long Live the Queen (coming in 2008 from Feiwel and Friends). When Ellen is not writing, she's watching the Red Sox. She lives in New York City.
Love, love, love the book. Found the series initially in the 90s when I was a preteen. Unfortunately, subsequent books were not available at the local libraries. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Lisa
I read the first three books as a kid and was startled to learn that she wrote another one many year letter. The author has a knack for writing about the aftermath of tragedy.Published 6 months ago by Judith E. Golden
