    When I first heard about the premise of this book, a freshman in high school runs for president of the United States, I had my doubts about my ability to like it After all, the Constitution provides that you have to be at least 35 years old to be president Luckily, the book resolves this issue rather quickly I don t think you can run for president unless you re a lot older, said Jack Don t you have to be forty or something Thirty five, said Paige, who, in spite of her rather unimpressiv When I first heard about the premise of this book, a freshman in high school runs for president of the United States, I had my doubts about my ability to like it After all, the Constitution provides that you have to be at least 35 years old to be president Luckily, the book resolves this issue rather quickly I don t think you can run for president unless you re a lot older, said Jack Don t you have to be forty or something Thirty five, said Paige, who, in spite of her rather unimpressive report card, was probably one of the smartest kids in their grade.Eden sounded impatient You can t actually be president unless you re thirty five But I don t think there s any rule against running for president I ll look into it I still think this is insane, Jack said Milo ignored him.A few moments later Eden was back from the computer I was right There s no rule in the Constitution against running for president It just says that you can t be eligible to that office unless you re thirty five And so Milo Wright, with the support of his three closest friends Eden, Paige, and Jack , decides to run for president of the United States as a write in candidate And the campaign Write In Wright is born Milo s campaign was not particularly a bid to win, but rather a device to raise awareness about issues facing teenagers.Despite this somewhat odd setup, I was really impressed with Condie s writing She managed to make the characters real and interesting, while still having them sound and act like the teenagers they are And the story had some nice twists and subplots.Anyway, the short of it is that I ll definitely be watching forwork from Ally Condie especially her new book Matched, which will come out in November and is getting huge buzz already

    I waffled between giving this book three or four stars I give it 3.5 After reading the prologue, I almost didn t read the book I recommend starting with chapter 1 Instead, I came here and read some reviews I decided to give it a shot, and I m glad I did While the premise is fantastical, Ally Condie does a good job of making it believable The characters are well rounded and the book manages to deal with teenage depression as well I m going to have my tween daughter read it, because it t I waffled between giving this book three or four stars I give it 3.5 After reading the prologue, I almost didn t read the book I recommend starting with chapter 1 Instead, I came here and read some reviews I decided to give it a shot, and I m glad I did While the premise is fantastical, Ally Condie does a good job of making it believable The characters are well rounded and the book manages to deal with teenage depression as well I m going to have my tween daughter read it, because it teaches that you can do anything you set your mind to do, and whether or not life turns out the way you plan, you can make your own happiness by the way you react to your obstacles

    I love this story It s almost a commentary on the social condition of teenagers, with real life applications and pressures, loses, wins, triumphs and so forth I love how it s written and all the different things our main character, Milo, goes through It s a triumph of writing.

    This was a really cute story I liked the characters a lot, especially the quartet of Milo, Jack, Eden, and Paige I would love to have been friends with such kids in high school They have some really funny exchanges together that are a blast to read I also like the way the characters care about each other and their families The relationships drawn in the story are very good ones I like reading a story about teens who aren t so messed up in their relationships with others, especially their f This was a really cute story I liked the characters a lot, especially the quartet of Milo, Jack, Eden, and Paige I would love to have been friends with such kids in high school They have some really funny exchanges together that are a blast to read I also like the way the characters care about each other and their families The relationships drawn in the story are very good ones I like reading a story about teens who aren t so messed up in their relationships with others, especially their families Milo has a healthy relationship with his parents His relationship with his sister is a lotcomplicated, but not in the way you normally see in YA fiction It is touching to see how much he loves Maura Even though she is so difficult to interact with, he is sensitive toward her needs The romance in this story is handled very nicely too I think there is just enough of it, and I applaud an author who doesn t fall to pressure to put her adolescent characters into relationships that, at their tender age, they are not ready for and that would not be appropriate Another thing I particularly admire about Milo and his friends is their initiative and their involvement They don t do anything halfway When they make up their minds to try something, they are in it for the duration, as they say I am impressed with their efforts and the research they put into everything they do for Milo s campaign They don t run the campaign as a mere publicity stunt to get their few seconds of fame Although they kind of enjoy that too, they don t just use the election as a time to goof off in front of a camera Instead, they take it seriously but without taking themselves too seriously and are very professional about the whole thing That shows a certain respect for our country and system of government that also impresses me If we hadteenagers like these in the world, it would certainly be a better place I hope this story inspires its readers to getinvolved in politics and the other issues around them, as I m pretty sure it was intended to do
