Sherri Winston will be reading from and signing her new book, President of the Whole Sixth Grade, a novel set in a fictionalized Michigan town not far from Detroit, and tells the story of Brianna Justice. A proven entrepreneur, Brianna is looking forward to conquering middle school with her usual zeal. However, the reality of growing up might prove to be too much for the intrepid tween. Can she withstand the personality shifts of her best friends as well as the challenges of new rivals and bigger battles? Only one way to find out!
“In this sequel to President of the Whole Fifth Grade (2010), Winston’s humorous prose captures the spirited preteen voice of an honors student with sass, quick wit, and great ideas. Readers will enjoy journal entries, text messages, and notes from Brianna’s trusty clipboard, which are interspersed throughout the narrative. A whip-smart, funny, and fast-paced outing equally suited to returning fans and readers who are just meeting Brianna for the first time.” (Fiction. 8-12) —Kirkus Review
