Publisher's Synopsis

A brilliantly funny novel from the author of 'The Abstinence Teacher' and 'Little Children', made into an acclaimed film starring Reece 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 school musical, sleep with her English 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 run as well. 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.

The idea was to educate the students of this suburban New Jersey school in the democratic process and the American way. But with all the sex scandals, smear campaigns and behind-the-scenes powerbrokers at Winwood High, it doesn't look as if they need any lessons…
