THE ACCIDENTAL CANDIDATE
In a world where every action is captured and posted on YouTube, Aidan's video went viral and he is declared the Clarinet Hero! There was no escaping his most embarrassing moment where he tackles the governor of Minnessota/ presidential candidate, being taken down by Secret Service and sucking it with his clarinet solo. But it's not all bad because The Fresh Idea campaign wants to jump on this instant celebrity status and take him on tour with them and help them win over the Midwest vote with his honesty and small town ideas.
How Not to Run For President by Catherine Clark is a fast and funny read for 6th-8th graders just right for the current political climate.
