Changes for Julie Paperback Book
Julie is in school detention for passing a note to Joy, a deaf student who has trouble understanding what their teacher is saying. Indignant, Julie decides to run for student-body president so she can make changes to the detention system. But the other students are put off by Joy, her choice for vice president, and Julie worries that she’ll have little chance of winning if she partners with someone who seems so different. With persistence and creative campaigning, Julie wins over the students—and wins the election without compromising her principles. The “Looking Back” section discusses the 1976 presidential election. Author: Megan McDonald. Paperback. 104 pages.
This book is the final one in a series of six historical books filled with inspiring lessons of compassion, courage, and friendship. Julie’s entire book set includes: Meet Julie; Julie Tells Her Story; Happy New Year, Julie; Julie and the Eagles; Julie’s Journey; and Changes for Julie.
