KIRKUS REVIEW

In this high-school comedy, popular Samantha tries to compensate for her abysmally low SAT scores by running for student-body president. Samantha’s problem, however, is that her campus spirit in her school career so far has extended to cheerleading and, especially, to frequent sarcastic remarks aimed at virtually all of her classmates. Logan, a former boyfriend with whom Samantha has been sparring for years, makes a bet that she cannot refrain from criticizing people for a full two weeks. Can Samantha overcome her innate compulsion to belittle her friends, can she win the election even when an opponent resorts to dirty campaigning, and most important, can she find a date for the prom after her current boyfriend dumps her? This is a witty, often hilarious romp that should appeal to young readers looking for light, enjoyable fiction. (Fiction. YA)
