Vote for Larry - Janet Tashjian. These were the times I almost told her about Larry. Almost told her I’d had a Web site devoted to anti-consumerism, that thousands-then millions-of kids from around the world had joined me in my quest to be non-materialistic. That I’d kept my number of possessions down to seventy-five for almost four years now-didn’t she notice I wore the same clothes all the time?
After becoming what he so clearly and strongly resisted―a consumer―Josh Swensen finds himself in a paranoid state of no return. That is, until he's kidnapped and coaxed into resurfacing as Larry, his old activist persona. Before long, Larry is back on the scene with much more on his mind than anti-consumerism―this time, he wants to affect change in government. And Larry isn't taking a conventional path or starting small in local government. He just doesn't do things halfway. But can he really become an eighteen-year-old president of the United States? Even if he can, is he sure he really wants to?
