Sammy's Hill by Kristin Gore
But Sammy's also trying to run a national political campaign whilst battling against journalists, treachery and a tendency to sabotage herself.
'Gore's narrator, 26-year-old healthcare analyst Samantha Joyce, is an utterly modern tumble of contradictions-Sammy's Washington [is] an electric town full of Machiavellian schemers, principled idealists, backstabbing diplomats, determined romantics, and one intuitive telemarketer. Gore is a child of the Hill, and she knows her town; the result of her light and juicy tale is, for better or worse, an absurd and convincing rendering of everyday life in the political jungle.' O, the Oprah Magazine
'Sammy's Hill is a laugh-out-loud literary debut, certain to draw comparisons to Bridget Jones's Diary.' Newsweek
'It shouldn't come as a great surprise that the first novel by Kristin Gore, daughter of Al Gore, is laugh-out-loud funny.' San Francisco Chronicle
