The Book

Title: The Fixer
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Series: The Fixer #1
Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books
Release Date: July 7, 2015

When sixteen-year-old Tess Kendrick is sent to live with her older sister, Ivy, she has no idea that the infamous Ivy Kendrick is Washington D.C.'s #1 “fixer,” known for making politicians' scandals go away for a price. No sooner does Tess enroll at Hardwicke Academy than she unwittingly follows in her sister's footsteps and becomes D.C.'s premier high school fixer, solving problems for elite teens.

Secrets pile up as each sister lives a double life. . . . until their worlds come crashing together and Tess finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy with one of her classmates and a client of Ivy's. Suddenly, there is much more on the line than good grades, money, or politics, and the price for this fix might be more than Tess is willing to pay.

Perfect for fans of Pretty Little Liars and Heist Society, readers will be clamoring for more in this exciting new series.

5 Reasons to Read the Fixer

1. Asher
When (not if) you read this book you will understand why he is my number one reason. He is hilariously witty, devilishly handsome and wildly unpredictable which makes him one of my new favorite characters. He lit up the pages that he graced and I couldn't get enough. You need to meet him.

Really, though. It was very much Scandal meets Veronica Mars set in High School and what's not to love about that. I don't know about you, but I find that I enjoy some good sleuthing. It brings me back to my Nancy Drew days. There was not a single second of this book that I did not enjoy. If you like fun, then you need to read this one.

3. It's unpredictable
Some plot twists you can see coming from a mile away but that was not the case with this book. I did not guess who the culprit was and in fact, I suspected just about everyone (except my beloved Asher).  That's the sign of a good mystery. There were also plenty of surprises outside of the mystery. That's the sign of a good book.

4. Politics
Politics are basically infused into the very being that is this book. It is the center of the plot and the setting and I love me some politics. Everyone's got some connections or other and are calling in favors and making things happen. Casual visits from the President are no big thang. Breakfast is served with a side of blackmail. The state of the country is hanging in the balance. It was great.

5. Badassery
Tess and her sister where complete badasses. What they did was badass. I don't really need to elaborate but for the sake of making this paragraph as long as the ones preceding it, I will. Tess was a little less intimidating than her sister, but both were likable. This book highlights strong and fierce woman and I will always be on board with that.

So there you have it. Five reasons why you should read this book. I know Asher was enough of a reason but now you know what else you have to look forward to. ;)
