With a werewolf and a vampire for best friends, she has options that most ordinary people wouldn't.

When Marty Andrews gets bitten by a mangy mutt while walking her teacup poodle, her blond hair darkens, the hair on her legs starts growing at an alarming rate, and her mood swings put her dream job as a sales rep for Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics in serious jeopardy. Then a drool-worthy man shows up at her door claiming that he accidentally bit Marty. And since he's a werewolf, she is now, too. Thinking Keegan Flaherty is clearly insane, Marty refuses to believe a word until a kidnapping makes her realize there's more at stake than just her highlights.

The only permanent thing in my life is the ink I put on my clients. I drift from city to city, in and out of beds, from one tattoo shop to the next. Every time I start to put down roots, I rip them up. Until New Orleans. Until her. She's everything I'm not. Full of fire and life. An innocent where I'm a sinner. I want to consume her. Protect her. Keep her. But first I have to escape from beneath these shadows.

Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules.

this book explains so much. explains the system of politics, explains how she loss to Donald Trump, explains the interference of Russia on our election, the issues that were at the heart of her campaign. I have so much more respect for her now. My 16 (then 15) year old daughter was at the inauguration with a Young Leaders convention. We signed her up believing that she would be there for the inauguration of the 1st female president. We contemplated calling her out when Donald Trump won. But it cost over $3,000 so we decided that this will be a learning experience for her no matter what. We are an African American middle class family. she was scared going, worried that there would only be Trump supporters showing up. it turned out to be the opposite. there were many just like her who expected to be witnessing an historical event but still came when the nightmare happened! Keep going, together!
