Review: The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
This thriller YA is Scandal meets Veronica Mars.
Sixteen-year-old Tess Kendrick has spent her entire life on her grandfather’s ranch. But when her estranged sister Ivy uproots her to D.C., Tess is thrown into a world that revolves around politics and power. She also starts at Hardwicke Academy, the D.C. school for the children of the rich and powerful, where she unwittingly becomes a fixer for the high school set, fixing teens’ problems the way her sister fixes their parents’ problems.
And when a conspiracy surfaces that involves the family member of one of Tess’s classmates, love triangles and unbelievable family secrets come to light and life gets even more interesting—and complicated—for Tess.
Perfect for fans of Pretty Little Liars and Heist Society, readers will be clamoring for this compelling teen drama with a political twist.

So my first opinion on the YA novel was…there is no love story, is it really going to hold my interests? The answer is h*ll yes! It was such a great story filled with so much drama and plot twists that I was engaged, intrigued, and enchanted. Something completely new and refreshing in the YA scene. The drama was non-stop, the plot twists, good Lord I never saw them coming! I love the rich, complex, wealthy world of D.C. politics.
The characters are so well developed, the secrets both kept and revealed are epic! It doesn’t end on a cliff-hanger per-say but there is still a question that remains unanswered and it will definitely leave you wanting more. This book was a breath of fresh, suspenseful air in a genre in desperate need of something new. Bravo Jennifer Lynn Barnes!
