Kirkus just gave aÂ pretty cool review for The Secrets to Ruling School: Class Election! “Offering fiendishly plausible pointers on such skills as fake-reading an assigned book and impersonating callers on the phone, Max lays out a strategy that canâ€™t miss…Even readers with no political aspirations can pick up several useful cons.” You can read the full review on Kirkus’s website.

Very exciting news! The Secrets to Ruling School (Without Even Trying) was selected for the ILA-CBC Children’s Choices 2016 Reading List! A bit about the list:
Each year 12,500 school children ages 5â€“12 from different regions of the United States read newly published childrenâ€™s and young adultsâ€™ trade books and vote for the ones they like best. These Childrenâ€™s Choices, selected from more than 900 titles, can be counted on as books children really enjoy reading. This list, a project of a joint committee supported by ILA and The Childrenâ€™s Book Council (CBC), is designed for use not only by teachers, librarians, administrators, and booksellers but also by parents, grandparents, caregivers, and everyone who wishes to encourage young people to read for pleasure.
So, what makes this super rad is that this list is voted on by kids, not adults! Which makes me totally pumped that the people I wrote the book for are digging it. You can check out the full list here.
