Synopsis

"Humorous dialogue, smart pacing and some dirty politics make for an engaging read.
With an election around the corner, this isn’t a bad way for young readers to view the political arena."—Kirkus Reviews


How NOT to run for president:
1.       DON’T accidentally save the life of a popular presidential candidate.
2.       DON’T say what the country really needs when you’re interviewed on TV if it leaves you a candidate—for teasing by the town bully.
3.       DON’T join the candidate’s bus tour—even if it gets you out of range of the bully. 4.       When everyone starts floating your name for vice president, even though you’re only 12, DON’T go along with it.

The thing is, none of this is Aidan’s fault! He didn’t ask to join the campaign. He’s missing baseball practice, and besides, the candidate’s daughter is a misery and a pest. So what’s he doing on the top-rated morning TV show in America, speaking up for his candidate? And what does he have to do to get out of this mess, without ruining her chances for election? Or does going along for the ride mean moving into the White House?
 
By the author of many acclaimed books for young readers, How Not to Run for President is a funny, timely, kids-eye view of presidential politics.
