In this second installment of Nathan Bransford's zany series, Jacob Wonderbar gets a message that he has been nominated for President of the Universe. His best friends Sarah Daisy and Dexter agree to be his campaign managers, and they head back to space to declare Jacob's candidacy. But politics are dirty, especially in space. The trouble begins before Jacob's campaign has even started and stakes are higher than he imagined: It turns out that the Valkrians (a space faction that loves blowing stuff up) wants to destroy Planet Earth, and the President of the Universe is the only person who can stop them.
