I got this book through Goodreads through First reads. This is a first in a series about Michael Bennit, History teacher turned Senate Candidate through a bet with his students. He then hires his students as his campaign staff as a lesson in history, politics, and life.

This was a really cool idea. It was really structured well. It did not have a lot of detail, but the flow and dialogue kept me reading. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0989767302, Paperback)

All Michael Bennit wants to do is be the best high school teacher he can be. However, when he loses a bet to his over-achieving class of history students, he finds himself in unfamiliar territory: a candidate running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. With no money, and only his students to run his campaign, Michael sets a plan in motion to be the country’s first virtual candidate. Leveraging the potential of social media, his campaign becomes the epicenter of national attention and a target for a desperate incumbent fanatical about hanging onto power - at any cost. The iCandidate follows the plight of four people caught in the firestorm of mass media, social media, and dirty politics. In the end, lives with be changed and the political landscape of the country forever altered, but will the lesson of it all be lost?
