Close friends may argue and make up within a few days, but some just breaks off their relationship. To make things worse, they become enemies, Coincidently there are two girls that are like this in the book, Madame President. From the best of friends to enemies. Madame President is an amazing book because the author portrays a competitive school life between two former friends, creates a dramatic conflict, and wonderfully obnoxious self-centered antagonists.
One reason why Madame President, is

Jenny McAfee and her new friends have survived the first few weeks of middle school. It is time to choose their extracurricular activities, which means showing up in the cafeteria after school to sign up for the after-school clubs. There is always a mad rush to get signed up before the `Club Filled' sign goes up on each table. Jenny has no idea which club would be the right one for her until Rachel and Felicia encourage her to join
It's time to sign up for the after-school clubs. Jenny's friends all know which club they want to join, but Jenny is still undecided. When her friends learn Addie, Jenny's former BFF, is running unopposed for sixth grade class president, they convince Jenny to run against her.

When Addie and the other Pops, AKA Popular, make promises to only the students who vote for her, Jenny's friends decide to come up with a few schemes of their own. When Jenny prevents them from moving forward with their pla

Lol I read these books back when I was in middle school. I was obsessed! I loved it because it actually related to middle school. Even for a middle school book it's pretty good.
Even though this is the second book in the series, it's probably one of my favorites (other than "I Heard A Rumor"). The whole running-for-student-government-so-that-middle-school-royalty-can't-take-over is just something so predictable, but all the fancy stuff that happens in the book (like Chloe growing paranoid about Josh being a spy) just makes it a fun but at the same time, kind of thought-provoking book. I'm not sure if this ever happens with anyone else, but even if you gave me a picture ...more
Its club sign up day and Jenny hasnt decided in which club she will be in. Her friends told her to run for 6th grade president against Addie Wilson(one of the Pops). Its time to start with the campaing and Jenny makes sugar cookies. Jenny thinks everyone is voting for her. Jenny makes a really good speech in which she includes that she is one of everyone and she wants to make the school a better place. Jenny wins the election for 10 votes and Addie becomes her vice-president. I really loved this ...more

I really need to read this series to survive U.S middle school!
This book is very interesting it's about a girl and her best friend who is not her best friend now ditched her to be with the pops "Popular" Girls. She see's that her friend is signing up for being in the Student Concil and the only one of she is going to win. The main Character doesn't want to let the pops rule the whole school so she joins. Does she win or the pop gets to rule the school!?
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is about Jenny McAffee joining to be a candidate to be Sixth Grade Represtative against Addie Wilson. All of Jenny's friends wanted her to do it so she could take the Pops down and in the end Jenny won the election, with Addie as Vice President. It is a MUST READ!
This book is so cute, and I'm glad that Jenny stays down-to-earth through all this drama.
The story is kind of unrealistic though, I mean, eleven year olds aren't that catty, and I have yet to meet an eleven year old similar to a Pop.
A good read if you're 10-13 years old.
My friend Weezie recomended this book to me and she said that it is a fantastic book... As you can see I did not put in a date I read this book or the day that I will read this book... Well if anyone reads this book I hope u like it...

I didnt like this one bit, i stoped readint the series after this. I mean, her bff betrayed her and she is still treating her like a bff??? Krulik needs to learn how middle school works, its not nice, its a dog eat dog situation.
Again, I LUV THIS BOOK! Its the 3rd best in the series of like 6. Its about a middle school election. Really its about Popular vs. Non Popular. Will popular prevail or will the non popular people take the stage?

This story is about when jenny runs for class president.Then finds out that Addie is running for president too.They do not know what to do because they know that Addie's going to win.Come and help them.
This has sssssooooo much drama that it keeps the book interesting! That's exactly what I like about it!

P.S. To Pooja It doesn't matter if it can happen or not because you probably don't even know!

This book was average.
The plot is very old and sometimes a little to unrealistic.
They make it seem as though middle school is very hard, and middle school election for stuff don't happen like that.

This book is absolutely retarded. I hate it, but I started it so I can't just stop reading it. It's horrible, I would NEVER reccomend such a horrible book to anybody, even to a person I hate.
i liked this one ebtter than the previous one. i dont know why but i felt there was a little more to this book than the previous one. thats it for this book.probabaly wont read twice though.
it is ok
After reading the first book I was hoping this one would be just as good( 3 stars) even better mabye. But its not. The best I could give this book was 2 stars......
The plot is pretty unrealistic...
They act older than they really are. It should be "How I survived High School."
It's just advertising

Recommends it for: Anyone in middle school or going into as in 6th grade and up
I learned that do stuff for your own purpose not just to beat someone. If you try your hardest at it you might just win them over anyways!+be a good friend!
These are my fav. books. I love them. The author describes great details on what happens during the election and before the election in the book.
In this book, Jenny takes a risk and goes up against her arch enemy in pursuit of president. Who will win, Jenny or the snobby popular girl?
The popular,snobby Addie and nice,friendly Jenny compete to be president of the sixh.In the end,'ll have to find out!!
This is a great book i read it last year and it is a true teenage book! that's right so if you like drama this is a perfect fit!
I guess I like the whole series. I liked this book even though its small becase it has's nice and fun.
It was a great book it. It was like the first one so if you liked and read the first one you will like the second one.
