After a lifetime of political disillusionment, Mia Rhodes created an alternative to the two-party system: Ameritocracy. Part American Idol, part Iowa Caucus, her online political competition promises to find the most popular independent candidate in America and give them a genuine shot to win the presidency.
But her project flounders until Mia catches the eye of eccentric tech billionaire Peter Colton. With Mia’s vision and Peter’s money, Ameritocracy moves rapidly from punchline to possibility. As the site grows, the stakes rise crisis by crisis, and Mia must learn that ending politics as we know it means saying goodbye to the Mia Rhodes she has always known.
In this volume, Ameritocracy Books 1-3 come together for the first time.
BOOK 1: OPEN PRIMARY
BOOK 2: OFF MESSAGE
Mia Rhodes was on the verge of transforming American politics. But when you take on the establishment, the establishment pushes back.
Six months ago, Mia Rhodes was a Seattle office manager, toiling away from nine to five and spending her weekends managing her online political competition, Ameritocracy. Now, that competition is spreading across the American political landscape, making Mia a celebrity and giving Ameritocracy a real shot at upending the two-party system in the 2020 election.
But as the final voting draws near, Mia is betrayed by one of the people she trusts most, throwing Ameritocracy into disarray, and possibly ending her dream of changing American politics forever.
