Can a sixth grader be principal of her own school? Bonnie Mann is a good girl who always does what she is told. But this year she has Mr. Locke, who is mean and unfair and who really doesnt know how to teach math.
When the principal of her school suddenly dies, Bonnie, urged by her loyal friends, decides to run for interim principal so she can take over-and fire Mr. Locke.
Bonnie is skeptical and the campaign is hard; everyone wants something special in exchange for votes. It isn't until election night, when Bonnie challenges her formidable opponent, the powerful third grade teacher Mrs. Atkins, that she realizes in order to change things and make them better, you sometimes have to speak out- even if others think it's wrong.
