Scab for Treasurer?

Illustrated by: Jim Paillot
For Ages: 8 - 12
Scab McNally has set his sights on a new challenge--proving once and for all that his classmate, Missy Malone, is really an alien in disguise. Scab and his friends have nicknamed Missy "Never Missy" because her hand is always first in the air every time the teacher asks a question, and Missy never gets one wrong. Come on, how is that really possible? When Missy decides to run for class president, Scab sees the perfect opportunity to challenge her by running against her. Scab's sister Isabelle doesn't miss a beat reminding Scab that he should be busy creating an agenda of what he'll do as class president, preparing a speech, and making signs. Instead, Scab focuses on launching wild enough stunts to win the popular vote . . . but will Never Missy be the first to beat Scab at his own game?
