When Grace's teacher reveals that the United States has never had a female president,  Grace asks “Where are the girls?” , as her third-grade teacher rolls out a poster of all 44 U.S. presidents. Frustrated by the lack of female faces in the White House, Grace decides she wants to be the first female president. Grace  immediately starts off her political career as a candidate and initiates a mock school election. She seems the likely winner until the most popular boy runs against her.

In this timely story, the basics of elections, from campaigns to the complexity of the electoral college are explained in a way that is clear and age appropriate.  Offering an inspiring example perseverance, courage, and independent thought of how to choose our leaders. Join Grace and her classmates on a musical theater journey through the throes of campaigning and pep rallies, service projects and posters, as Grace and her classmates discover what it takes to be the best candidate.
