Gr 4–6—In fifth grade, Brianna Justice's most difficult tasks were running for class president and staying true to herself and her friends. Sixth grade ups the ante. Brianna is handed the sixth grade presidency along with a financial deficit that could keep her class from their trip to Washington DC. Her civics teacher gives the kids an assignment to compare life in middle school to life in ancient times. As Brianna struggles with fundraising failures, self-doubt, posturing classmates, and friends drifting off to new cliques, she begins to have a whole new understanding of ancient Rome. In the beginning, Brianna is a rather unsympathetic character. She has the self-absorbed, narrow focus of, well, a stereotypical middle school student. As she gets more involved in her community and lets herself open up to the possibility that change can be good, Brianna becomes much more likable. She has passion and heart and her good intentions show through, even when she is making bad decisions. The story accurately captures the ups and downs of changing friendships in middle school and features an intelligent, talented, African American protagonist. Brianna's actions match her age, but her introspective thoughts and civics journal entries maker her seem slightly older. VERDICT Give this to fans of fast-paced, contemporary fiction. It's a sequel, but can stand alone.—Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Praise for President of the Whole Sixth Grade:
"Winston's humorous prose captures the spirited preteen voice of an honors student with sass, quick wit, and great ideas... A whip-smart, funny, and fast-paced outing equally suited to returning fans and readers who are just meeting Brianna for the first time."―Kirkus Reviews
"Brianna's determination and follow-through make her a great role model, but the true value here is the very real depiction of the ebb and flow of middle-school friendships and the difficulties that come with growing up. An important resource for anyone who's ever been in Brianna's shoes."―Booklist
