Fans of the TV show will love to read about Hank facing off against nemesis McKelty and younger sister Emily in the school council election.

In this fourth book in the series of books based on the hit CBBC TV show, a school council seat is up for grabs at Westbrook Academy, and Hank's nemesis, Nick McKelty, and Hank's diabolical little sister, Emily, are launching campaigns to get it. Hank's plan to stop both of them from getting power is to run for the seat himself, and the election gets ugly fast. What won’t the three do for votes? Perfect for readers aged 8 + and also reluctant readers. The TV series is based on the New York Times bestselling series by Henry "the Fonz" Winkler and Lin Oliver.
