Student Council Smackdown by Robin Mellom-ADVISABLE

Mellom, Robin, ill. By Stephen Gilpin. Student Council Smackdown. 282. Disney Hyperion, 2013. $12.99. Language: G, Mature Content; G, Violence: G

Libby Gardner and Cindy Applegate are friends, but rivals when it comes to class politics and seventh grade is no exception. For this year’s campaign, both are going all out and getting creative, but will they take things too far? Meanwhile, Trevor is still trying to figure out what it takes to be cool. Will he succeed?

The problems are realistic in this book and so are the characters. The illustrations are fun and detailed. Readers who like books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid will enjoy reading this book. EL, MS. ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
