What would you do if your best friend was:
1. Still imaginary (and still an oversize blue chimp with major junk-food issues)?
2. Nominating you to run for class president - against the most popular kid in your grade?
3. In charge of your campaign posters...all blue, of course, including your face!?
4. Planning a magical secret weapon to help you win (not fair and square, right?)?
5. Driving you crazy?!?!
Now you have an idea of what Willie Ryan's life is like as his adventures with Dodger continue. The last thing Willie wants to do is run for class president, but both his running mate, Lizzie, and Dodger won't let him quit - and have their own ideas of how to run a campaign, especially against James Beeks, Mr. Popularity. In this second installment of the Dodger and Me series, the humor runs high, the friendships run deep, and Dodger continues to run on French fries and good intentions.

Excerpt from Dodger for President by Jordan Sonnenblick
"We didn't mean it, Willie. It just kind of happened," Dodger said. "One minute, everything was going great. I drank the potion, pretended to be you for a couple of hours, took that quiz I was telling you about, watched the cake fall on James Beeks--it was all fun and games. Then all of a sudden, everybody was yelling at each other, and I had to stick up for Lizzie. The next thing I knew . . . umm . . . well . . ."
. . . Dodger fled to the inside of his magic lamp for the night, I got ready for bed. While I was lying there in the dark, I kept picturing the whole nightmare classroom scene in my head, and wondering what the heck I was going to do about it. Finally, before I drifted off into a night of nervous, tortured half-sleep, I decided what I would have to do. I'd just get up in the morning, march off to school, and tell Mrs. Starsky that I was sorry, but I couldn't run for president after all. I mean, Dodger had gotten all worked up in the spirit of the moment and put me in a bad situation. But I had spent years being careful to avoid the spotlight. If I backed down, Beeks would probably make fun of me for a while, but soon things would be back to normal. I would be happily invisible, Beeks would get elected, just like he had every year since kindergarten, and life would go on.
I figured, how hard could it be? It's not like one day of being absent could change my life forever, right?
