Project Description

Julie is in fifth grade – and in trouble! She was only helping her friend Joy, who is deaf, but her teacher doesn’t care. After serving time in detention, Julie sets out to change the system. To do that, she’ll have to win the election for student body president, running against the most popular boy in the school. As the election heats up, Julie tries to get the kids to listen to her ideas. When she realizes that the other kids don’t like Joy, her choice for vice president, she considers dropping out of the race. But the last thing she wants is to hurt Joy’s feelings – or lose her as a friend.
