    One thought on “The Secrets to Ruling School: Book Two: Class Election”

    1. Slightly less mean-spirited than the first but essentially recycled from it. Some positive lessons buried inside the forced cool.

    2. I haven't read the first one, but if it's anything like this book I can see how kids would get a little bored of it. It's exactly what the cover says it is--a how-to guide on how to run for office. It's clever enough to keep you interested, but only for a while.

    3. Sequel to "The Secrets to Ruling School". This is a solid middle school book in the style of Wimpy Kid. Max has decided to run for class president. He's got a 9-point plan that is sure to get him elected - although it may also get him into hot water. Lots of humor, fairly predictable.

    4. In this second book in the series, Max Corrigan teaches you, the New Kid, all you need to know to win the class election. From instructions on how to spin anything to be in your favor to descriptions of backroom dealings, a Watergate style scandal and even a falsified video showing one of the candidates in the worst light, I felt like this view of elections was accurate, though bleak. The book does end with the message of "Presidents should work to make the world better", but the New Kid wins be [...]

    5. Not sure I'd be happy if any of the students I work with take any of this advice, but I can see the Wimpy Kid appealC provided by publisher.
