Middle school expert Max Corrigan is back in the second book of this hilarious middle-grade series, and he wants YOU to run for class president. This book by comic artist Neil Swaab, which follows the hit first book,Â The Secrets to Ruling School, is a perfect read in advance of the 2016 elections and ideal for budding republicans, democrats, and independents.
The competition is fierce, but luckily, youâ€™ve got a killer campaign manager on your side. With Maxâ€™s help, youâ€™ll conquer all the steps of running for office and winning votes, including advertisements, endorsements, campaign speeches, and more. Along the way, youâ€™ll learn more essential skills for thriving in middle school, including making a viral video, trading your lunch in the school cafeteria, and putting a positive spin on any situation.
Neil Swaab once again combines comics, kid-friendly humor, and direct-address narrative perfect for reluctant readers in an innovative format reminiscent of video games that is â€śsure to hit the mark with middle schoolers in the trenchesâ€ť (Publishers Weekly) and with fans of the Big Nate and Terrible Two series.
â€śOffering 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 missâ€¦Even readers with no political aspirations can pick up several useful cons.â€ťâ€”Kirkus
