Ellen Emerson White is an American author who has written a number of young adult fiction novels. Ms. White's first book, Friends for Life (1983) was published while she was a senior at Tufts University. White grew up in Narragansett, Rhode Island. Many of her fiction novels feature characters who reside in Boston or are from Boston and are fans of the Boston Red Sox (as Ms. White is). White now resides in New York City.

The media, and the blogosphere, kept talking about how important it was for a President to be completely strong and unafraid in a first, post-shooting appearance. ence and all. But, that meant taking risks-smiling and waving longer than necessary, that sort of thing. She and her brothers were going to stay home from school, so they could be there as soon as she got home, but her father wasn’t letting them go to the hospital because, he said, the car would be too crowded

After ten months of living in the White House, seventeen-year old Meg Powers knew she should be used to the pressures of life in the spotlight-but she wasn't. A cynical shelter dog learns to let down his guard and form a new animal family in this heartwarming and humorous friendship story from the author of Santa Paws. Webster is too cool to be scared.

Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 10 years ago. This is a great book - the 2nd book in the 4-book series about Meg Powers. Ellen Emerson White is SUCH a good author - The entire series is fabulous. I first read this book back in high school years ago. It Is about Meg and her family - her mother has just become the first woman President of the USA. Meg and her brothers have to have Secret Servicemen with them now all the time, which makes life difficult, and it tells how Meg feels about being part of the first family and how she handles things.

After ten months of living in the White House, seventeen-year old Meg Powers knew she should be used to the pressures of life in the spotlight―but she wasn't. In addition to the usual senior year worries―college applications and Josh, her first serious boyfriend―Meg had to live up to what was expected from the President's daughter. She had to suppress her sense of humor and watch the way she dressed and spoke. And she had to try to have a normal relationship with Josh despite intrusions by reporters and secret service agents who followed her everywhere. Then, just when everything was already so difficult, a shocking attack on her mother makes life in the White House even more impossible. Meg, her father, and her two younger brothers find they must turn to one another for solace and support―while her mother's life hangs in the balance.

Meg Powers' story continues as she becomes more comfortable living in the White House. She finds friends at her high school, including a boyfriend named Josh. In her family's first fall in the White House, Meg's mother, the president, is attacked in an assassination attempt.

As Meg's mother fights for her life, and then fights to conduct presidential business even in the hospital, Meg struggles with fear for her mother, with anger towards her mother for being a public figure, and with her own tendency to push people away, especially at times of crisis.

Like its predecessor, this book is fast-paced. Meg grows a great deal in the course of the book and Ellen Emerson White captures that growth beautifully.

White also makes it possible for the reader to step into Meg's life and imagine that he or she is the daughter of the President of the United States. It's quite a fantasy for anyone interested in politics on the presidential level.

I read this when I was a teenager back in the 80's and enjoyed it then. I really like the story, but I did not remember how much bad language was in this book (and in the other books of the series). I really enjoyed the behind-the-scenes looks of living in the White House. This edition has been updated to include modern technology.

I have read and reread (and loved, especially the first one) all three Meghan Powers books in their original editions. I am grateful to Hawk Publishing for reprinting these three books (now called the "President's Daughter" series) so that more people can enjoy them, but I do feel that people should know that these reprints are not high quality. They are trade paperbacks with bindings that seem sturdy enough, but the text is not at all crisp -- in fact, it looks like the publisher may have enlarged the pages from the original mass market editions on a Xerox machine and then reprinted these new editions from those copies. I am basing this guess on the fact that the text looks enlarged and somewhat blurry.
The covers of all three of the reprint editions are hideous; the first one shows a girl who looks to be about 8 or 10 years old instead of a teenager, and the "White House Autumn" cover is not much better. The price is also steep at $14.95. I can excuse that on the basis that Hawk is probably a small press, and small presses find it hard to make ends meet.
If you can get past all that, these books are marvelous to read. "White House Autumn" continues to use Meg's unique voice and sense of humor. The book also deals with Meg's feelings of guilt when her mother is the subject of an assassination attempt. Again, I am grateful to Hawk for reprinting these, even if the quality is a little disappointing.

One of the books in the series that I like as a teenager. Still read it now and I am not close to being a teenager anymore.

Excellent read, difficult to put down.

Ellen Emerson White can do no wrong. I loved the original and she made this re-release even better. I wish she wrote faster b/c I would read anything she wrote.

While I still do enjoy reading about Meg and her family's life at the White House, I felt like this book was way too narrow-focused. I realize that the shooting of the President would be an extremely serious event, but I definitely feel it was far too drawn out and could have easily been condensed, leaving room for other stories. I did like seeing some of the characters develop a little more, particularly Steven, through their interactions with Meg. I felt like Meg's temperament after the shooting was accurate, but again, narrow. I would have liked to see more of how others were reacting. We got a glimpse of what was going through Steven's mind, but not really Neal's or especially her cryptic father's. I mean, at the beginning of the book, I was convinced that her parents were going to divorce, which, horrible as it is, would make a really interesting story. It's a little drastic then, to see the relationship between Meg's parents be slightly awkward, wobbly, and unsure, to the most steadfast, loving relationship out there. In general though, the Powers family just has the most personality of any book family I've read about (except maybepossibly the Weasleys). I think the one most powerful line of this book was Meg's mother talking about her shooter, saying only "I hope he gets help." Such a simple line ends up conveying so much about everything: decorum at the white house, her mother's compassion, her mother's position. Amazing. Again, it's a good book, but I'm hoping it's one of those that's a bridge to better sequels.

Rating: 3.5/5
Meg Powers is just a normal teenage girl living in Washington, D.C. -- except for the tiny little fact that her mother is the President of the United States.

Meg is actually getting used to living in the big, white house with her parents and two brothers, Steven and Neal. But when a gunman tries to take the life of the President, Meg faces the scary facts about being the First Family.

It's up to Meg to comfort her two brothers in between visiting their mother in the hospital and missing their father, who spends all of his time at the hospital, as well. And if that wasn't enough, Meg has to deal with the fact that her boyfriend, Josh, seems to be doing everything wrong. And can her friends really be real if they start acting weird around her because of her mother's accident?

Ellen Emerson White writes a compelling sequel about a teenage girl trying to understand the ropes of being the First Daughter. With WHITE HOUSE AUTUMN, the readers see a different side to the first family -- how stressful and scary it is to control security in an uncontrollable world.
