Vote For Remi: a novel by Leanna Lehman. CA: She Writes Press, 2015. 258 pages. ****
"If Remi had known that her entire world was about to change, she would have ordered something stronger than beer." Remi Covington, a high school social studies teacher at Reno High School, hears her name announced on television as a 2016 candidate for President of the United States. Nominated by her students after she lectured them that anyone can run for President, Remi decides why not, she can't possibly win. Her students learn a valuable lesson about life, love and American politics, Remi discovers love, hope and belief in "doing what's right." A winning team for the American public.
This Young Adult political fairy tale will appeal to all ages that are tired of political rhetoric and presidential campaign mudslinging. Lehman provides hope in the midst of the political arena and an entertaining story for teens and adults. A timely novel for high school and public libraries.
I received a free copy of this book to review from BookSparks.
