Freshman for President based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
As an adult who enjoys YA literature, this book was so fun and refreshing to me. The author clearly feels no need to push the envelope of how many adult themes can appear in a book aimed at teenagers. Freshman for President is touching, funny, inspiring, and thoroughly enjoyable to read, all while maintaining what I'd consider a PG rating. Well done, Ally Condie!
