In an electoral mood?
VOTE by Gary Paulsen. Wendy Lamb Books, 2013.
Here is another chapter in the ongoing tale of Kevin from LIAR LIAR, FLAT BROKE, and CRUSH. Kevin has decided to run for Student Council President. His inspiration is not necessarily valiant. For one, he hopes to defeat the other candidate, Cash, who seems to have a rather swoony effect on the girls at Kevin's school. For another, perhaps demonstrating his leadership abilities might draw the perfect Tina Zabinski even closer (maybe even a second date?). Things get interesting as Kevin attempts to do all the things a good candidate should do including making alliances, knowing his electorate, and conducting an honest campaign. Will Kevin's past saddle him? Or can he convince everyone of his good intentions?
