At once hilarious and poignant, this novel is about four unpopular 7th graders who decide to band together to run for student council. One is overweight, one is tall and opinionated, one is slow, and one is gay. Together they make a formidable quartet as they confront their classmates about their name-calling and stereotyping.

Page Turners
In telling this humorous, fast-paced story through the voice of chubby young Bob, author Howe teaches a valuable lesson about stereotypes and labeling others.
