"The House of Representatives is the voice of the American people, just like the student council speaks for the student body or class. Being part of student council or taking another leadership role in school can be a great experience for students. But the road to election can seem like a long one--and even longer for those who aspire to a political career! With main content including the setup of the House, who is eligible, and how one is elected, this book uniquely relates House candidates' experiences to readers working for student leadership positions."-- Publisher's website.
