It's election time at Hillridge Junior High! But when the only candidates for school president are way-too-popular (and way-too-snobby) cheerleader Claire Miller and geek-boy Larry Tudgeman, Lizzie's friends convince her to run for office. But as Lizzie's popularity skyrockets, so does her ego. Can Lizzie become Hillridge's new prez without ditching her friends? Plus, Mr. Dig helps the kids prepare for an academic competition . . . where they'll be facing Kate, Claire, and Larry!
