The Tyrant's Daughter

The Tyrant's Daughter By: J. C. Carleson

Laila has always had everything. Being the daughter of the king is the way of life.  But her father is now dead, and her family has been hidden in the United States.  She now knows what it is like to be in want. Wanting to know how to fit in at school, wanting to know how to handle her annoying little brother, and wanting to know why her mother still acts like someone should take care of her.  Laila is confused by the way her mother is acting, and finds it strange that her mother is working for the CIA.  Soon Laila will see that her mother is not just trying to find work, but making a huge move that will take them back to the life that they are all used to.

This was an interesting book about a girl who has been uprooted from her home.  You can defiantly feel that she wants to understand how to act in the United States, and is confused by the customs that we have. She also would love to have her father back, and really does not understand that her father was not a good man. As she uncovers her father's true life she is shocked, and then her mother starts to follow in his footsteps.
