Kidsboro #1:
Battle for Control

Sometimes a leader has to make unpopular decisions. But when Mayor Ryan Cummings votes not to grant Kidsboro citizenship to Ashley, he runs into fierce opposition from Ashley's friend Valerie. The most popular, powerful (not to mention beautiful) girl at Odyssey Middle School, Valerie won't be stopped until she gets what she wants—and she wants to be in charge. Is Kidsboro ready for an election pitting Ryan against a girl who cares nothing about rules?
