From the New York Times bestselling author of The Leftovers comes a darkly hilarious novel about a high school election that brings out the worst in everyone--the basis for the film starring Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick! Tracy Flick wants to be President of Winwood High. She's one of those ambitious girls who finds time to do it all: edit the yearbook, star in the musical, sleep with her English teacher. But another teacher, staunch idealist Jim McAllister (aka "Mr. M."), thinks the students deserve better. So he persuades Paul Warren--a well-liked, good-hearted jock--to throw in his hat. But that puts Paul's sister, Tammy, in a snit. So she runs, too, on an apathy platform--before starting a real campaign...to get herself kicked out of school. Tammy's upset because her secret, forbidden love has been lured away...by her own brother. Tracy's upset because losing this election might screw up her college chances. Mr. M.'s upset because ever since he embarked on his own extramarital affair, his life's been falling apart. As for Paul, well, he's not sure what's going on. The whole idea was to educate these suburban New Jersey teenagers in the democratic process and the American way. But with all the sex scandals, smear campaigns, and behind-the-scenes power brokers at Winwood High, it doesn't look as if they need any lessons...… (altro)

Quick read. I liked Tammy; the other characters didn't seem all that fully developed. ( )

Another winner from Mr. P. If you liked the movie, the book has even more interesting background for all the characters (of course). My only beef is that all the sections, presented in the first person for each character, do not really have distinct voices. This is particularly apparent for the teens' chapters, which have much more sophisticated style and vocabulary than they should. Nonetheless, a great read. ( )

Entertaining read but the film is such a perfect clone of it. It's basically a bit like reading a script. For once, I'd probably veer in the direction of saying the film is superior. ( )

A fast and very entertaining read! ( )

Tom Perrotta's one of my absolute favourite authors and I'm never disappointed in his work. It's interesting to re-read this again after many years (and having read many more of his books). It's similar in structure to The Leftovers, Little Children and The Abstinence Teacher and yet much shorter and more focused. A fun, quick, read. ( )
