Product Description

Product Description

It was a simple plan. She would help him pass algebra. He would help her win the student election. What could go wrong?

Take one geeky sixteen-year-old girl deathly afraid of speaking to any crowd larger than one, but who desperately needs something on her application other than perfect grades to get her into Stanford. Add in a star basketball player who's Mr. Popular to everyone else, but who's hiding more than a few startling secrets. Throw in a crisis of identity, a scheming girlfriend, and troubled family lives. Oh, and make sure everything that can go wrong does. Then count the votes.

The result is PRESIDENT JOCK, VICE PRESIDENT GEEK, the story of two mixed up teenagers struggling to find themselves and the craziest student election ever to hit the halls of Rexton High.

"Carter's writing is on target." - Publishers Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome in every way 26 April 2012
By Lisa Fred - Published on Amazon.com

I am a little old to be reading YA books, but I have found I really enjoy the paranormal ones. I thought I would give this book a try, even without the paranormal spin and I am so glad I did.

This book was refreshingly different. I loved the characters and the male lead's "secret" really pleased me. It was nice to read a book that portrayed this particular situation in such a positive, yet realistic, manner. Kudos to the author and I definitely recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Thought Provoking Read 23 April 2012
By Sabrina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Here's what I liked: The characters weren't the same canned, 2D characters that you find in a lot of YA romance. Yes, there's stereotypes but then the characters don't really fit the mold perfectly -just like in real life. The sexual orientation twist will have some readers uncomfortable but I felt the author handled the divisive topic with tact.

My only complaint? (Without giving away any spoilers) The ending is worded in a way that makes me wonder if there's a sequel but it's not spelled out clearly. There's closure -kind of -but not really. It doesn't take away from the story, it just makes me want to keep reading to find out for sure that what I think will happen, happens.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy and pleasant reading 23 April 2012

every single part in this book won't make you stop laughing. what i like the most about this book is the author was able to go deep and voiced out the two characters of different sexes, but still able to make it interesting.

i constantly keep on checking the free books on kindle, and this certainly worth my time to read it.

4.0 out of 5 stars president Jock vice president Geek 31 Jan 2011
By snowy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed reading this book. From the moment I started reading I was drawn into the book. At times I felt as if I were there watching the action as I turned the pages of the most wonderfully written novel I have read in quite some time. I was drawn to the character of the sixteen-year-old girl who was deathly afraid of speaking to any crowd larger than one remembering periods at my own schooling, this is a book that you will want to keep turning the page to see what happens next
1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the time :( 12 May 2013
By Patricia - Published on Amazon.com

I thought I'd enjoy a fun book but I was disappointed with this story. First of all I couldn't stand the crazy psycho bitch Trish. Then Becky and her infatuation with Josh was just plain sad. To top it off Desmond was so in love with Becky. Also no matter how smart he was there were things he knew, things that were too specific to not realize he was being a little creepy. However I really loved Desmond, he was by far my favorite character. Josh's situation was very understandable and didn't really bother me much other than there was nothing to clue the reader since every time he pushed Trish away was because she was so psycho. I thought I'd enjoy it but just fell flat for me.
