Lookalikes 21

White House Autumn by Ellen Emerson White

Girl with a Pearl Earring (1665) by Johannes Vermeer

This is what I will assume was the original White House Autumn cover from 1985.

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.

What do you think of these intentional lookalikes?

Check back soon for the last two lookalikes in this series.

    I like the White House Autumn original one! :-)

  2. PLEASE...don't hate the messenger (sob, sob)

  3. OMG! There was a sequel?! How did I not know this?

  4. I don't like it as much as the first in the series, but you're kind of making me want to read these books!

    I like the newer one.

  6. From what you've posted about the series they sound really interesting. I love that the covers are homages to works of art. At least(so far) they're not cheesy duplicates of like Betsy Ross and stuff like that.

  7. Veens- It does have something going for it doesn't it!

    S. Krishna- My mom found a list of cancelled shows in the paper yesterday and that wasn't on it, I guess it went to print too soon or I can wish it was a rumor LOL!

    Lorin- I'm so glad you found out!

    Amee- Yeah I'm starting to want to read them too!

    J. Kaye- I love how they are based on famous paintings! That's the art history nerd in me!

    Taren- Yeah they are pretty cool, I think the first one was my favorite!

  8. I'm loving LONG MAY SHE REIGN, which comes much later. Now I have to go back and read these first ones. I want Ellen to send these books to the Obama girls!

  9. Melissa- She should! That would be so cute!
