Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

In one of the funniest, most insightful, most surprisingly touching novels of recent times, Perrotta "captures the texture of high-school life in a refreshingly unromantic manner" ("Time Out New York"). Soon to be a major motion picture from MTV Films and Paramount, starring Matthew Broderick.


Review:

"It's hard to pinpoint where the generally entertaining story goes wrong. But it feels simultaneously footloose and overplotted..."

Kirkus, 01/15/1998

Review:

"'Election' proves once again that Perotta is a breezy writer--sometimes hurricanic, often wispy. He's probably worth sailing with for a while."

Linton Weeks, Washington Post Book World, 05/17/1998

Book Description: Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. Who really cares who gets elected president of Winwood High School? Nobody -- except Tracy Flick. Tracy s one of those students of boundless energy and ambition who somehow find the time to do everything -- edit the school paper and yearbook, star in the musical, sleep with her favorite teacher. Tracy s heart is set on becoming president of Winwood, and what Tracy wants, Tracy gets. What s more, her classmates seem to agree. With weeks to go before election day, her victory is nearly a foregone conclusion. And that s just the problem, according to Mr. M. a.k.a. Jim McAllistar, faculty advisor to the Student Government Association and a popular Winwood history teacher. In the name of democracy -- not to mention a simmering grudge against Tracy Flick -- Mr. M recruits the perfect opposition candidate. Paul Warren is a golden boy, a football hero, with a brain and a heart, eager to bulk up his meager resume. But the clear-cut two-way race is muddled when Paul s younger sister unexpectedly enters the competition. Running on a platform of apathy, Tammy Warren is an anonymous sophomore, struggling with her sexuality and mourning the defection of her best friend, Lisa, who has abandoned their friendship to become Paul s campaign manager and girlfriend. Part satire, part soap opera, Election is an uncommon look at an ordinary American high school, and the extraordinary people who inhabit it. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780425167281
