So, I don’t actually watch Scandal. It’s not the type of show that appeals to me. I’m more of a murder mystery/superhero/cooking show kind of girl (ok, I have weird taste in TV shows).
But I am a Veronica Mars fangirl. And isn’t Olivia Pope like a grown up Veronica Mars?
And if you combine the two, the world explodes from the sheer force of awesome.
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.
Whoever said “secrets secrets are no fun” had no idea what they were talking about.
What Intrigued Me: Anything even vaguely Veronica Mars-esque will catch my attention. And Tess is very Veronica Mars-y. Badass girls taking charge are my catnip.
What Hooked Me: MURDER! INTRIGUE! POLITICS!
*dramatic organ music*
What Made Me Fall In Love: Smart girls are my favorite. And by smart girls, I don’t necessarily mean bookish or straight-A students. I mean observant, thoughtful, clever. Practical smart.
Smart girls get things done.
Smart girls are fixers.
