It's "Home Alone" in the White House!
I would share this with my teenager and listen to it again with her - perhaps in the car. :-) It's very funny and I laughed out loud in several places.
The author really captured the way many young teenagers speak and behave. You put that "normal" teen behavior in the White House - which is usually associated with more decorum - and it's a recipe for some good laughs.
I liked several scenes, but the one where Megan (the President's teenaged daughter) and Josh (the VPs 14 year old son) hide in the walk-in refrigerator in order to avoid the house-wide thermal scan for body count, got my attention. It's funny and is something I never would have thought of.
The final birthday party scene with Megan and her father was a nice, poignant resolution to the rest of the story.
It was well-performed and funny. It's a terrific premise, and the author made the most of it. There were some scenes that I originally thought might be unrealistic, and a couple of brief places where I got a little confused about what was happening at the time, but the way it ended explained everything in a satisfactory way. Definitely worth a listen if you have ever spent any time around teenagers and you like to laugh out loud. :-)
