Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Monserrat Urena
Callie Singer is just another middle school student. She has friends, and her everyday life includes the standard "perfect" popular girl. In this case, her name is Brianna Blake. She and Callie each belong in her own little sector of middle school society. But Callie never expected that she and Briana Blake would cross paths in the race for student council president. It is a race that Brianna Blake wins every year, unopposed. At first, Callie's nomination is just something that is meant to get under Brianna's skin. It has nothing to do with actually winning the election. Then, things get very personal when Brianna humiliates Callie and steals one of her best friends. The race is on! This book presents life in a normal and safe suburban world. The middle-grade infrastructure is never challenged from the outside. The source of turmoil is internal. This makes it a safe and comfortable read. The book would not be A Candy Apple Book if it were not sweet and nostalgic about the better parts of childhood. If you enjoy sweet, slice-of-everyday-life fiction … this is a good choice. If you want something edgier and darker … it is not the book for you. Reviewer: Monserrat Urena

    Vote for moi!

    Callie is smart, a good friend (she became), truthful (eventually), and breath-taking.
    This book is not your average ok-so-I'll-run-for-student-council-whatev'
    story.
    It shows how Callie changed through her campaign, and how she made a new friend.

    Callie Singer's life is pretty simple. She has two loving parents who were weird enough to name her Calliope, and an obnoxious older brother who their parents named Hobbes, after Thomas Hobbes the philosopher. She has only two best friends, Max and Fish, she hates sports, her middle school, and the very fake and very snobby Brianna Blake. Callie liked the way her life was going. <BR/><BR/>That is until Brianna came up to Fish, the best artist in the school, and asked him to be part of her campaign team. At first, Callie was sure that Fish would deny the offer, but before she knew it her best friend had crossed to the other side. <BR/><BR/>Callie's life changes even more when Max nominates her for the election, only because she was called out for talking in class and needed to avoid getting in trouble. So now Callie is face to face in the election for student council president against her enemy -- who everyone knows will win no matter what. <BR/><BR/>At first the idea of actually winning the election seemed impossible to Callie; the idea that she could actually beat Brianna and possibly change the way the school is run is laughable. Callie hops on the political train with Max as her campaign manager and Fish still on the other side. But as the campaigning comes close to an end and the voting is soon to begin, Callie isn't so sure that she is in the election for all the right reasons, compared to her opponent. <BR/><BR/>Funny and very witty, CALLIE FOR PRESIDENT gives an inside look at student council elections, and it's not very pretty. Deep down though, Robin Wasserman sends a message that we shouldn't be quick to judge someone without truly knowing them, and it definitely goes both ways. CALLIE FOR PRESIDENT is a wonderful addition to the Candy Apple line, and no one should miss out.
