Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

From President Jock, Vice President Geek:

"I just realized how hard it's going to be to pull this off, even if everything goes right.  Which it won't.  Nothing in my life ever does.  I mean, it was one thing when it was just a plan that I was sure you'd just think was stupid.  It's another thing when it's something we're going to actually do."  She looked at me.  "Listen,  we will have to be careful.  We have to make a pact right here that no matter what happens, we won't ever talk about this conversation.  We won't ever tell people about our plan.  If we do . . . "  She shook her head.  "It's fraught with danger."

"Fraught?" I said.  "Who talks like that?"

"Just think of what would happen if kids found out," she said, as if she hadn't heard my remark.  "Our reputations would be ruined.  We really need to make sure we're okay with the risk before we take the plunge."

"As long as you don't use the word fraught in any speech you write for me, I think we'll be okay."

"It might even be the sort of thing that makes the paper," she said, her voice rising.  She was visibly trembling, her bog of hair shimmering as if she'd just stuck her finger in a electrical outlet.  "Even the Portland news!  Maybe we'd even end up as a bullet on Yahoo.  Just think of it!  We might even be expelled.  It would go on our records.  Ruin both of our lives.  You might lose your scholarship.  No way I'd get into Stanford, or any decent school for that matter.  The only thing we'd be able to do would be some stupid reality show.  Then in five years we'd be working at gas stations and somebody would say, hey, don't I know you, you were that girl that tried to fix a school election . . .  Oh god, Josh.  Maybe, maybe we--"

"Hey, hey, take it easy," I said, putting a hand on her arm.  She looked at me in surprise, but she also stopped trembling.  "We haven't even started and you're already losing it.  You've got to be a little more cool under pressure."

"Cool under pressure," she said, nodding.  "Right."

"It'll all work out."

"It'll all work out," she repeated.

"That's better.  We're not doing anything wrong, Becky.  It's not like we're rigging the ballot box.  So don't use the word cheat.  This isn't cheating. Not even close.  We're going to have to get voted in just like anybody else, and it's not a given.  We might lose.  The only thing we're doing is agreeing ahead of time that if we do win, I'm going to step down.  And that's nothing.  Nothing at all.  Okay?"

"Okay."

"Good.  So it's a deal?"

She bit down on her lower lip.  "You sure nothing can go wrong?"

"Absolutely."

Here's what I liked: The characters weren't the same canned, 2D characters that you find in a lot of YA romance. Yes, there's stereotypes but then the characters don't really fit the mold perfectly -just like in real life. The sexual orientation twist will have some readers uncomfortable but I felt the author handled the divisive topic with tact.

My only complaint? (Without giving away any spoilers) The ending is worded in a way that makes me wonder if there's a sequel but it's not spelled out clearly. There's closure -kind of -but not really. It doesn't take away from the story, it just makes me want to keep reading to find out for sure that what I think will happen, happens.

I really enjoyed reading this book. From the moment I started reading I was drawn into the book. At times I felt as if I were there watching the action as I turned the pages of the most wonderfully written novel I have read in quite some time. I was drawn to the character of the sixteen-year-old girl who was deathly afraid of speaking to any crowd larger than one remembering periods at my own schooling, this is a book that you will want to keep turning the page to see what happens next

I am a little old to be reading YA books, but I have found I really enjoy the paranormal ones. I thought I would give this book a try, even without the paranormal spin and I am so glad I did.

This book was refreshingly different. I loved the characters and the male lead's "secret" really pleased me. It was nice to read a book that portrayed this particular situation in such a positive, yet realistic, manner. Kudos to the author and I definitely recommend this book!

every single part in this book won't make you stop laughing. what i like the most about this book is the author was able to go deep and voiced out the two characters of different sexes, but still able to make it interesting.

i constantly keep on checking the free books on kindle, and this certainly worth my time to read it.

President Jock Vice President Geek by Scott William Carter is a full size novel by Mr. Carter. It is told in two points of view: Josh and Becky. He's the star basketball player and she's the smart girl who hides in the back of the room. Becky's got a major crush on Josh, but until the opportunity of running for class office, she doesn't stand a chance he's ever seen her. Josh isn't her perfect boyfriend candidate and has secrets that are itching to get out. Can he turn his life about, get his dream of leaving a rinky-dink trailer behind, and stop lying? Mr. Carter is listed mostly for his short stories but I look forward to finding his next full-length novel.

I thought I'd enjoy a fun book but I was disappointed with this story. First of all I couldn't stand the crazy psycho bitch Trish. Then Becky and her infatuation with Josh was just plain sad. To top it off Desmond was so in love with Becky. Also no matter how smart he was there were things he knew, things that were too specific to not realize he was being a little creepy. However I really loved Desmond, he was by far my favorite character. Josh's situation was very understandable and didn't really bother me much other than there was nothing to clue the reader since every time he pushed Trish away was because she was so psycho. I thought I'd enjoy it but just fell flat for me.
