RT Rating

Lieb, a Daily Show executive producer, takes on junior-high-school politics in this very funny, occasionally bittersweet tale, creating the most sympathetic young evil genius since Artemis Fowl.

Fat seventh grader Oliver Watson acts dumb to disguise the fact that he's an evil genius running an empire from his basement. But when he decides to run for class president to show up his arch-nemesis, he'll have to depose a foreign dictator, befriend the meanest girl in school, be the instrument of the school bully's comeuppance and go through lots of pink glitter if he's to defeat his unlikely adversary.
