Now in paperback, Veep meets Parks and Recreation in this hilarious illustrated middle-grade political comedy about a twelve-year-old who runs her babysitter’s campaign for mayor

If you ask Maddie Polansky, seventh grade is almost universally horrible: She only has one friend, she can never seem to do things the "right" way, and everyone thinks she's weird. The only goo part of middle school is art class.

Maddie has never paid much attention to politics, but when she learns that the front-runner for city mayor, Lucinda Burghart, plans to cut funding for the arts in schools, she knows she has to do something. That means either getting Lucinda to change her mind... or starting a campaign for a candidate who can beat her.

The problem is that Maddie's just a kid, and adults have all the power. Or do they? If Maddie can convince enough of her classmates to join her cause, then maybe the grown-ups in power will have to listen to them. Can one artsy seventh graders start a movement that will change her family, her community, and maybe even the world? Or should Maddie go back to her usual place on the sidelines, where everyone thinks kids belong? 

Election Day is coming up, and there can only be one winner...
