Vote by Gary Paulsen -- ESSENTIAL

Paulsen, Gary Vote, 136 pgs. Wendy Lamb Books, 2013. $12.99. Content: PG.

In this follow-up to Liar, Liar; Flat Broke; and CrushKevin Spencer is at it again. Kevin prides himself on his leadership skills, but those are about to get a serious workout, because he's made a spur-of-the-moment decision to run for student body president. It's either that or risk losing his brand new girlfriend to the other candidate. But as it turns out, running for office is not as easy as it looks.

Kevin is a hilarious, and very candid, character, and his narrative is filled with wonderfully quirky details. While he has a lot of room to grow, he is smart and charming, and his story likely appeal to many readers, both male and female.

MS -- ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Caryn
