Can’t Wait Wednesday: The State of Us



The State of Us by Shaun David Hutchinson

David Linker at HarperCollins has bought We Are the Ants author Shaun David Hutchinson‘s The State of Us, the story of Dean and Dre—the 16-year-old sons of the Republican and Democratic candidates for President of the United States—who fall in love on the sidelines of their parents’ presidential campaigns. The book is planned for summer 2020; Katie Shea Boutillier at Donald Maass Literary Agency brokered the deal for world rights.



So, okay, like, there isn’t even an official summary for this book yet, and okay, like, it’s basically just the only American version of Red, White, and Royal Blue, but dear gosh, I’m already done with this. With all of the election hype that is already building up here in the US, I’m ready to take some of the craziness and wind it into some good, cute adorable romance with some feely feels. Fingers crossed I can make it through the election season to bask in these adorable contemporary vibes.




Rapunzel and Flynn definitely know about coming from different sides of the line – Flynn is a criminal thief and Rapunzel lives a sheltered secret royal life. Their connection definitely separated the divide, so Rapunzel would be excited for this romance.


What do you think? Is this on your book TBR as well?

  1. I hadn’t heard of this before but I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought of Red, White & Royal Blue when reading the blurb. I can’t believe that I havent read it yet. I do have it on hold at the library though; I just have no idea where I am in the queue and they only have three copies so it could be a while. And I have A LOT of books on my TBR for next year with only vague information available 😅

    1. Omg, YES. It was my immediate thought and was like, I just need it because of that. And oye, yes, I definitely know that it could be a while. I know people that got stuck on it for weeks. Hopefully it will appear soon for you!! And lol, totally me too.
