The kids from Poplar Lane are back! It's the start of 7th grade and both Clover and Mike are running for class president. Mike is being managed by Peter - who is also helping him improve his magician image, and Clover's campaign manager is her best friend Rachel. But Rachel has a new friend, Abigail, the new girl at school, and when Clover doesn't ask for her help with the election, Abigail decides to work for Mike. Wait . . . Clover likes Mike! 

Oh, so funny! I love this neighborhood of kids and I'm so glad to see this sequel! Great messages - taking charge of your own decisions, girl power (but what about the boys) making friends, being your best self . . . Would certainly work on its own, but get Payback on Poplar Lane, too.
