Praise For Class Election (Secrets to Ruling School #2)

"Using second-person narration addressed at the New Kid, Swaab tells the tale between the lines of Max's glib patter and frantic reactions to being outmaneuvered; cartoon line drawings on nearly every page convey side comments and punch lines...Readers who identify with the never-seen New Kid can pat themselves on the back as "you" repeatedly come through in the clutch. Even readers with no political aspirations can pick up several useful cons."

— Kirkus

"Recommended for reluctant readers and fans of graphic novels and hybrid books."

— School Library Journal
