Abstract
Hello, sixth grade! Mia Lee is a stop-motion filmmaker with a wheelchair and a lot of sass, trying to survive her new middle school. Which doesn?t seem so easy when she?s running for Video Production Club President against certified Middle School Mean Girl, Angela Vanover. Things get weird when Angela starts being nice to her -- well, when other people are around, at least. But when Mia?s campaign posters for VP Club President mysteriously vanish -- no tape, no poster, no nothin? -- the presidential race gets real. With the help of her brain files, an awesome aide with keys to the whole school, and her friends, Rory, Daniela, and Caroline, Mia finds herself on a mission to prove Angela isn?t just an ordinary middle school mean girl, she?s a thief!
