Looking for the perfect book for your kid reader this summer?
Ask yourself, what does school politics, dirty tricks and cupcake recipes have in common? Find out in President of the Whole Fifth Grade! The story features Brianna Justice, a precocious fifth-grader in a small community outside of Detroit, Michigan. Brianna wants to become a cupcake-making millionaire when she grows up, thanks to her idol, TV baker, Miss Delicious. So when the glamorous celebrity baker visits Brianna’s school and says she would never have made a success in her business without the skills she learned as president of her fifth-grade class, Brianna is like, “Well, I’ve gotta’ be President now!” So little Miss Thing launches the mother of all campaigns. She tells everyone she knows that the class president job is hers. And she would have walked away with it. Mmm, hmmph. Free and easy. Except for one thing: Jasmine Moon. Now what started out looking like a sure thing, isn’t so sure at all. How far will Brianna go to make her dream come true. Honey, it’s in the book. You gotta’ read the book!
