The Long Game


The Long Game: A Fixer Novel
by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (Author)

Booktalk: For Tess Kendrick, a junior at the elite Hardwicke School in Washington D.C., fixing runs in the family. But Tess has another legacy, too, one that involves power and the making of political dynasties. When Tess is asked to run a classmate’s campaign for student council, she agrees. But when the candidates are children of politicians, even a high school election can involve life-shattering secrets.

Meanwhile, Tess’s guardian has also taken on an impossible case, as a terrorist attack calls into doubt who can–and cannot–be trusted on Capitol Hill. Tess knows better than most that power is currency in Washington, but she’s about to discover first-hand that power always comes with a price.

Snippet: On some level, I was aware that the 911 operator was talking on the other end of the phone line. On some level, I remembered making the call. But on another baser level, all I could think about was the body.
