How Not to Run for President

(2012)
A novel by

 
"Humorous dialogue, smart pacing and some dirty politics make for an engaging read.
With an election around the corner, this isn't a bad way for young readers to view the political arena." - Kirkus Reviews

When the middle school band is called to play for a presidential campaign rally, Aidan is right there with his clarinet, just in time to save the candidate's life. Interviewed by the media, he speaks up in favor of the need to save jobs - like his mom's, for instance. Even though he's in the middle of Little League season, for pete's sake, the candidate convinces him to join her tour of the midwest.

Problem 1: The candidate's daughter HATES Aidan. Problem 2: What do you do when your whole life has been turned upside down and you can't get away from the media? Problem 3: What's a red-blooded American boy to do when he's asked to play the clarinet on national TV and the local bully back home is giving interviews saying Aidan's the nerd of the century?
