Cecelia Montgomery returns after running away to deal with the downside of her newfound fame—and her mother’s Presidential campaign—in the sequel to Escaping Perfect.
Two weeks after going on the run—and running away from a life that was carefully constructed for the past ten years—Cecelia Montgomery finds herself back in the middle of a media firestorm. Before she can blink, Cecilia is forced once again into a public persona she had no part in creating.
But her friends from Sweet Briar still have her back. After creating another clever diversion, Fiona, Britta, and Jasper help smuggle her back to Sweet Briar. Just when Cecilia thinks she actually is in the clear, her mother—the formidable Senator Montgomery—drops into town and officially announces she plans to run as the next Presidential candidate, making Sweet Briar campaign headquarters.
As Cecelia grows more disappointed in the people who supposedly care about her, she gets pulled deeper and deeper into a group and party scene that is vastly different than her own. Can Cecelia ever find her perfect ending, or will her escape prove to be more of a trap than she ever thought possible?
