Jeremy Bluett, known as Germy Blew It to his friends, has not been successful in leadership roles. But now Germy sees a way to become a true leader. Although only a sixth-grader, Germy runs for the high-school seat on the school board, and the high-school students (who have voted a boa constrictor homecoming queen) have no problem giving a kid the job. The sixth-graders, however, are taking the appointment more seriously, especially since Germy has assured them he'll take care of bad cafeteria food, offer excuses for missed homework, and even fire bad teachers--like their teacher. One of the things that makes the book so funny is Jones' use of a running gag, the invisible reporter who is interviewing future President Bluett. And although Jones hovers around the broad side of comedy, she never goes so far out that kids can't connect with the life at home and school she describes. The funniest in an always amusing series.
