Soon, he's a media star and the candidate asks him to join her on the campaign trail. Eager to escape the hometown bully, Aidan agrees to go, and he's really hoping he can make a difference. Along the way, he discovers that joining the campaign does have a few downsides, like the candidate's snooty daughter…and the media's smear campaign on his family! But can one 12-year-old kid really decide the course of a presidential election? Packed with information about politics and elections, this novel also features an author's note that suggests ways kids can get involved in leadership opportunities as well as websites where they can find out more about our government.
