Freshman for President
Fifteen-year-old Milo J. Wright and his best friend, Eden, are crazy to
even consider participating in the election for President of the United
States of America, aren't they? Never mind that Milo is twenty years too
young. Never mind the fact that he'll have to balance the election with
school, his lawn-mowing job, soccer practice, and trying to understand
girls. There are times in life when you just have to go for something, no
matter how impossible. Readers will discover that everyone, no matterwhat age, has something valuable to say.

This was really a great book! It is inspirational without cheese and exciting without gimmicks. It is a really great look into the heights and depths of teenage minds.

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!
