Vote by Gary Paulsen

Kevin has a chance to be class president.  The only problem is that he has to run against Cash, a very popular boy at school.

Wendy Lamb Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

I love Kevin, he's such a typical boy.  He's brave, goes after what he wants and, after a few unfortunate experiences, he learns from his actions.  This book was even more fun than the others because he learned giving something up can be even better than winning.

Cash is very much in favor of winning because his of looks and his popularity.  Kevin can't even get a political team together.  His big inspiration is Tina again; he wants to impress her.  Funny how most of the hints on politics come from Cash's political leader.  There's a good lesson here; I like how Mr. Paulsen handled it.

If you have been following Kevin, you'll need to get this book.  He's his usual self.  If you haven't met him yet, check out the other books in the series.  Kevin is growing up.

Happy reading.
