Carol Gorman ISBN 0-06-440970-8
Jerry Flack's life is completely perfect! Jerry has spectacular friends and goes to a terrific school. But everything changes when he decides to run for class president. Jerry Flack goes to Hawthorn Middle school. He is in 6th grade. Jerry is a self proclaimed dork. He believes this because he's not athletic, he doesn't like movie stars, and he's skinny.
After he begins campaigning for class president, he gets bullied by a kid named Gabe who is running against him. Jerry becomes miserable and annoyed by this. Brenda, Jerry's friend helps Jerry try and win the class election. Will Jerry decide to back out of running for class president? Read the book to find out.
I like this book because Jerry was easy to relate to. He is just a regular kid. This book shows the importance of courage because Jerry has to stand up against Gabe bullying him. I would recommend Dork on the Run to 9-12 year old kids or those who like Carol Gorman, The writing is comical and the story is fast paced, uses narrative voice, realistic dialogue, important themes, and has convincing character development. This book is a funny story of courage and sticking up for one's self.
