Jenny and Addie are two girls who will be elected by the school for Madame President. But Jenny's team(her friends who are helping her win the election) has trouble because a boy in Jenny's team helps Addie's friend something and Jenny's friends thinks that the boy is in Addie's team. I suggest this book for people who likes school story. ( )

Jenny McAfee and her new friends have survived the first few weeks of middle school. It is time to choose their extracurricular activities, which means showing up in the cafeteria after school to sign up for the after-school clubs. There is always a mad rush to get signed up before the `Club Filled' sign goes up on each table. Jenny has no idea which club would be the right one for her until Rachel and Felicia encourage her to join the student government group.

Student government? There's a method behind their madness. Rachel and Felicia have heard that Addie, of the hated Pops, is running for class president, and they are sure that Jenny could give her some needed competition. It's the best possible plan - one of the regular people beating out one of the popular people. Just think what could be accomplished with a class president who cared about everyone, not just the Pops.

Once Jenny adjusts to the idea, things really start to roll. Her friends pitch in and create posters, bake cookies, and even make a video for her own personal website. Everyone helps scheme and plan ways to beat Addie. Unfortunately, Jenny begins to think some of the plans might be a bit over-the-top, and there's also the complication of a possible spy among the volunteers.

In book number two of the HOW I SURVIVED MIDDLE SCHOOL series, following CAN YOU GET AN F IN LUNCH?, Nancy Krulik continues the middle school adventures of Jenny and her friends. Just like the first book, MADAME PRESIDENT is fast-paced and easy reading. Ms. Krulik continues to include the fun quizzes that encourage readers to play along.

This is definitely a must-have series for middle grade girls. ( )

It's time to sign up for the after-school clubs. Jenny's friends all know which club they want to join, but Jenny is still undecided. When her friends learn Addie, Jenny's former BFF, is running unopposed for sixth grade class president, they convince Jenny to run against her.

When Addie and the other Pops, AKA Popular, make promises to only the students who vote for her, Jenny's friends decide to come up with a few schemes of their own. When Jenny prevents them from moving forward with their plans, her campaign manager is barely speaking to her. And one of Jenny's friends may be a spy for Addie! Jenny must decide to be true to herself if she wants to win this election. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439025567, Paperback)

Best-selling author Nancy Krulik delves into the mind of a twelve-year-old girl trying to survive middle school.

Jenny McAfee never thought of herself as a leader, but then again, Jenny had also never thought that her best friend, Addie Wilson, would ditch her for the Pops-- the most popular kids in school.

When Jenny's friends hear that Addie is running unopposed for sixth grade class president, they know they have to do something…and that means convincing Jenny to put her name on the ballot. If Jenny and her friends can't keep Addie from winning, the Pops will officially run the school.

But can Jenny really stop the Pops?
