Kate Quinn’s mom died last year, leaving Kate parent-less and reeling. So when the unexpected shows up in her living room, Kate must confront another reality she never thought possible—or thought of at all. Kate does have a father. He’s a powerful politician. And he’s running for U.S. President. Suddenly, Kate’s moving in with a family she never knew she had, joining a campaign in support of a man she hardly knows, and falling for a rebellious boy who may not have the purest motives. This is Kate’s new life. But who is Kate? When what she truly believes flies in the face of the campaign’s talking points, she must decide. Does she turn to the family she barely knows, the boy she knows but doesn’t necessarily trust, or face a third, even scarier option?

Set against a backdrop of politics, family, and first love, this is a story of personal responsibility, complicated romance, and trying to discover who you are even as everyone tells you who you should be. 


I can’t even begin to explain how I’m feeling about this novel right now; my emotions are all over the place. The Wrong Side Of Right was engaging, beautifully written, filled with suspense. Every single page will have you craving for more; you’ll need to know what is going to happen next. I wasn’t sure how much I was going to like the book since I am not much into political type of novels. Once I picked up The Wrong Side Of Right I couldn’t get enough of the story, I couldn’t force myself to pull away, I was hooked. You can’t help but fall in love with this book and the characters, it’s filled with so many emotions and by the end of the book you feel a connection with most of the characters, especially Kate. That was feeling that I got while reading the book, each page had me wondering what was going happen with Kate next. Would she stay? Would it work? Would she actually form a relationship with her father? It’s the questions that you will find yourself thinking about while you read the novel. I believe that it’s type of book that will have you thinking a little bit. I was.

I loved Thorne’s writing style, a bit of different style than I usually read when comes to book like that. Plus I loved how she was counting the days till General Election, some of the things that were written in there, had me laughing. In general the entire book had my attention from beginning to the end, how could it not? There were so much going on and Kate had almost no private life due to fact that her father was running for U.S President. I love romance books but I loved fact that not all of book was based on just romance, actually most of it was based on family; in Kate’s case her new fond family and the relationships that she established with them. I enjoy reading novels that deal with families. The Wrong Side Of Right you can tell how much the relationships changes from the beginning to the end of novel. I loved Meg the most to be honest, to me it felt she was one person that expected her despite her being product of her husband’s affair. I loved how she accepted her and loved her like she was her own child. You can’t help but love a character like that.

Now Andy, what is there to say about him? At start of book I didn’t actually know what to think about him, I couldn’t figure out if I liked him or not. In a way I had mixed feelings about him. Especially after they kissed and he wouldn’t call her afterwards. Plus in way he got her dad in trouble in what happened with Penny’s parents. That was one of most heartbreaking scenes, at least for me. You could tell how much friendship meant to her, when she came to Andy about it because nobody else would help, or listen. In his own way Andy did help. At first I did wonder if he was using her, so that his father would get re-elected. But as I kept on reading the book and thought about it, I knew that he liked her, the way he was always with her and they both seemed happy together. Andy and Kate had a bond, a connection that both of them didn’t seem to acknowledge at first. Kate needed someone like Andy. I loved that their relationship didn’t move fast. It was real.

I wish that I could give this book more than five stars because that’s what it deserves. The Wrong Side Of Right is story about love, friendship and most of all the importance of family. A beautifully written novel, a magical ride that you won’t forget.
