What would you do if your best friend was:
1. "Still" imaginary (and still an oversize blue chimp with major junk-food issues)?
2. Nominating you to run for class president - against the most popular kid in your grade?
3. In charge of your campaign posters all blue, of course, including "your face" ?
4. Planning a magical secret weapon to help you win (not fair and square, right?)?
5. Driving you crazy? ?
Now you have an idea of what Willie Ryan's life is like as his adventures with Dodger continue. The last thing Willie wants to do is run for class president, but both his running mate, Lizzie, and Dodger won't let him quit - and have their own ideas of how to run a campaign, especially against James Beeks, Mr. Popularity. In this second installment of the Dodger and Me series, the humor runs high, the friendships run deep, and Dodger continues to run on French fries and good intentions.
JORDAN SONNENBLICK is the author of Dodger and Me (Book 1) and Dodger for President (Book 2), both available in paperback from Square Fish. He is also the author of several acclaimed teen novels, including Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie. He lives with his family in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Praise for Dodger for President:
“The outlandish tone should please Dodger’s fans”—Booklist
“Dodger’s silly sense of humor is entertaining, and the situations in which Willie finds himself will have any reader laughing out loud. Willie’s awkward affection for his friend Lizzie is a sweet aside to the story. Reluctant readers will find themselves cheering on Willie and wanting to read more in the series.”— VOYA
