Have you ever....

run for class president or any student body office? What type of campaign did you use? Was it a clean or underhandedly evil campaign? In Josh Lieb's I Am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to Be Your Class President , Oliver Watson decides to run for 7th grade class president. Most people in his class perceive Oliver as a lazy and dumb person, which is not the case. Actually, Oliver actually is a wealthy, driven, and intelligent person; he owns an empire!!! Of course, no one, especially his parents, know how Oliver operates. This books takes us on Oliver's campaign journey---from eliminating his popular opponents to tricking "the most pathetic boy in school" to running against him. If you're ever considering politics, this book just might be for you. Does Oliver win or does he lose? You'll need to check this book out for its somewhat surprise ending.
