Wait? What do mean there's never been a girl president? Yep, Grace is on it.

Entertaining for a story including electoral college details. Not boring, although there are a few pages where it's all about getting the facts across. Every tried explaining the electoral college to 2nd graders? Exactly.

This is definitely one that'll find more love from teachers. That said, Grace is likable and worthy of being class president, the story maintains tension, and the kids were quieter than I expected during it.

3/4 stars, depending upon how much you like politics. Oh, and after you read it, throw in a "many one of the people in here will be the first woman president." It's fun to see their faces.
