Ever since a deeply unfortunate incident earlier this year, Reggie's been known as "Pukey" McKnight at his Brooklyn school. He wants to turn his image around, but he has other things to worry about: his father, who's out of a job; his best friends, Ruthie and Joe C.; his nemesis, Donovan; and of course, the beautiful Mialonie. The elections for school president are coming up, but with his notorious nickname and "nothing" social status, Reggie wouldn't stand a chance, if he even had the courage to run.Then Reggie gets involved with a local homeless shelter. Haunted by two of the clients there--George, a once-proud man whoshares his interest in comic books, and Charlie, a six-year-old kid--he begins to think about making a difference, both in the worldand at school. Pukey for President? It can happen... if he starts believing.
