Julie is in school detention for passing a note to Joy, a deaf student who has trouble understanding what their teacher is saying. Indignant, Julie decides to run for student body president so she can make changes to the detention system. But the other students are put off by Joy, her choice for vice president, and Julie worries that she'll have little chance of winning if she partners with someone who seems so different. With persistence and creative campaigning, Julie wins the students over--and wins the election without compromising her principles. The "Looking Back" section discusses the 1976 presidential election.--From publisher's description.

Review: Changes for Julie (American Girls: Julie #6)

User Review  - Kristine Pratt - Goodreads

Julie gets detention and runs for office - yeah, just go with it. A lot of good information about the election process, and a nice introduction for government. I come away from this book thinking that Julie grows up to become a governor or something. Wouldn't doubt it... Read full review
