Twelve-year-old Oliver Watson's got the IQ of a grilled cheese sandwich. Or so everyone in Omaha thinks. In reality, Oliver's a mad evil genius on his way to world domination, and he's used his great brain to make himself the third-richest person on earth!

Then Oliver's father—and archnemesis—makes a crack about the upcoming middle school election, and Oliver takes it as a personal challenge. He'll run, and he'll win! Turns out, though, that overthrowing foreign dictators is actually way easier than getting kids to like you.

Can this evil genius win the class presidency and keep his true identity a secret, all in time to impress his dad?

    " Reminded me of the importance of letting our kids know we are proud of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dianne | 2/17/2014

    " I picked this up in the YA section at the library as a "blind date" book so I didn't know what it was until I got home. The review snippets on the cover were funnier to me than the book itself but I get what the author was going for and I think that for the right audience, it was good. I was not the right audience, though. I see from the GR reviews that other adults liked it but I would venture that it's best for older tweens and early teens. Some of the references might even go over their heads, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherie | 2/16/2014

    " Funny and clever and wholly enjoyable. A quick read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Reverenddave | 2/11/2014

    " This story of a 7th grade Walter Mitty never gave you enough glimpses of the reality to give context to his daydream. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 2jb01bcs | 1/13/2014

    " I would rate this 15 stars if I could and it is awsome!!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 1/5/2014

    " Hilarious. And a poignant statement on our democratic process in America! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lilly | 12/24/2013

    " Siyana, we must read this, if not purely because it reminds me of Austin. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rose Ann | 11/21/2013

    " Coarse and cynical. Not recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/31/2013

    " Hilarious YA book from one of the Executive Producers of The Daily Show. Recommended for all maniacal middle schoolers, and the dimwitted parents who love them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirin | 10/13/2013

    " with reviews by jon stewart and jud apatow i had high high hopes, so perhaps the book wasn't deserving of a 3 star, perhaps my expectations were just too high. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 7/30/2013

    " Let's say 3.5, if only for the Sorkin footnote and the fact that Josh Lieb is a producer on The Daily Show. Cute, quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 4/26/2013

    " Funny, cynical, and very entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 4/4/2013

    " Entertaining, in a juvenile way. Definitely not high literature, but a little school-boy humor is necessary every once in a while. The main character was extremely fun to read, and all the shenanigans he gets into were fun to read as well! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tya | 3/22/2013

    " I have absolutely no idea what I think about this book. I finished it. Looked at it. Said, "huh." Stared some more. And that's about that. I think I liked it? Maybe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 8/26/2012

    " A rare occassion when I read a humor book, and I actually find it funny. I lost friends on the bus due to the fact that I was unable to stifle my laughter half the time. The pictures and footnotes that are used by Lieb are great. I like the crazy spin he puts on the whole campaign process. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa McAlvey | 7/23/2012

    " So funny! The reader for the book on CD was incredible and very entertaining. This poor boy simply wants his father to be proud of him, but doesn't want to admit it. (That would be a show of weakness for an Evil Genius, after all) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki | 5/18/2012

    " I wish I had more stars to give this book. I laughed so hard, I couldn't breathe. I had to shut the book until I had enough oxygen to continue. Well done, Mr. Lieb. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/25/2012

    " I found the main character to be kind of annoying, but the story overall was interesting. I don't think I would have been able to sit through the actual book though, it was much better as an audiobook. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jolee | 4/17/2012

    " perhaps I wasn't in the mood? But, it was a bit disappointingly blah for me. Moments of wit. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jillian | 7/27/2011

    " I liked the idea of this more than the reality. It was grating. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Patrick | 7/19/2011

    " Didn't like it enough to finish. It had some funny parts but not enough to warrant the time it would take to read it all the way through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stevie | 5/4/2011

    " I found the main character to be kind of annoying, but the story overall was interesting. I don't think I would have been able to sit through the actual book though, it was much better as an audiobook. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mr. George | 4/27/2011

    " It is like an evil Family Guy "Stewie" all grown up and taking over the world and the world not even knowing about it....especially his parents. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 4/24/2011

    " This has to be one of the funniest books I have ever read!! I could not put it down. I think this will be my favorite nutmeg nominee. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirin | 3/28/2011

    " with reviews by jon stewart and jud apatow i had high high hopes, so perhaps the book wasn't deserving of a 3 star, perhaps my expectations were just too high. "
