Book Review: Twitter Girl

twittergirlOur story starts with Twitter Girl, Cassidy Shea, getting fired for a tweet that she sent out that was considered controversial.  This also leads to her boyfriend breaking up with her.  But – it also brings to her a new opportunity as Presidental hopeful Will Becker wants to add her to his staff to send out snarky tweets about the President and his competition during the votes.  Becker is also single, good looking, and every woman in America wants a chance to be his First Lady.

Cassidy takes the job and then starts getting mixed signals from her boss.  Is he interested in her?  The thought of being First Lady is always in the back of her mind, but her career comes first.  Once she gets involved with the campaign, she starts getting anonymous texts telling her to look more into Becker’s life – specifically in 2005.  At first she casts it aside, but when she starts to date Becker and her brother has a funny feeling about him (and his gut is always right) she starts to dig a little deeper.

And what she finds is more than she bargained for.  Not only does she find dirt on the would be President that could bring his campaign to the ground – but she also finds the meaning of love.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the witty tweets that were posted throughout the book so you could follow along, so to speak, with what Twitter Girl was tweeting throughout the campaign trail.  While the love aspect of the story was a bit too perfects and not all that realistic, I did enjoy reading it and found it endearing.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book
Meet America’s Tweet-Heart.

She’s network reporter Cassidy Shea, better known as @TwitterGirl, with more than a million followers thanks to her sarcastic tweets. One hundred forty characters that can take anyone down a notch.
But while brevity may be the soul of wit, it can also get you fired.
When a controversial tweet goes viral the snarky redhead finds herself locked out of the career she loves… and watches her boyfriend take a hike.
Alas, no industry values sarcasm more than politics, and Cassidy becomes a marketable commodity for Presidential candidate Will Becker, a squeaky-clean, stone cold lock to be the next occupant of the White House. This candidate is unlike any other; he’s the country’s most eligible bachelor. He’s also looking for a running mate, and we’re not talking about a Vice President.
Twitter Girl has caught his eye.
Cassidy finds herself swept up in a whirlwind romance that turns her into the next Jackie Kennedy and becomes the favorite to be the next First Lady. The country can’t get enough of America’s First Couple… will Cassidy and Will Becker bring back Camelot?
But an anonymous tip triggers her journalistic curiosity. Is Will Becker all that he seems? The search for the answer teaches Cassidy the meaning of love.
