The last book in the Julie series from American Girl, this wraps things up rather tidily. Neither this book nor the 5th one had any divorce issues at all which seems rather unrealistic and there are some choices rather obviously made to allow for marketing tie-ins of crafts and doll accessories.

Julie gets stuck in detention just for helping her new friend, Joy, who is deaf and misunderstood the lesson. Detention, to Julie, seems a complete waste of time- how is writing 150 sentences going to improve her behavior? She thinks that the class president should change things, but the boy running is running on a platform of pizza and popularity. Julie decides to run with her friend, Joy, to make a change for the better. It isn't easy for them to get around all the prejudice against Joy's deafness, but Julie makes her points and wins. ( )

Julie is in school detention for passing a note to Joy, a deaf student who has trouble understanding what their teacher is saying.

With persistence and creative campaigning, Julie wins the students over--and wins the election without compromising her principles. The "Looking Back" section discusses the 1976 presidential election.--From publisher's description.… (more)
