"Where are the girls?"
When Grace's teacher reveals that the United States has never had a female president, Grace decides to be the first. And she immediately starts off her political career as a candidate the school's mock election. But soon, she realizes that she has entered a tough race. Her popular opponent claims to be the "best man for the job"--and seems to have captured all the male votes--while Grace concentrates on being the best person.
In this timely story, author Kelly DiPucchio not only gives readers a fun introduction to the American electoral system, but also teaches them the value of hard work, courage, and independent thought--and offers an inspiring example of how to choose our leaders.

        I ran for school president because this book really encouraged me. I didn't win, but my mom was really proud of me for being that brave.

            I decided to read this book because I wanted to see how a little girl could be brave enough to run for President! This book was awesome. Grace overcame her fears and learned that girls can be President.
