It is senior year, and Napoleon is trying to figure out not only what college to go to (“Your mom goes to college.”), but what his career path will be. Should he be a cryptozoologist? Join the FBI? Really, his future holds no bounds. I mean he does have nunchuck skills. He is officially dating Deb, Pedro is student body president, and Napoleon is secretary to the student body president which he thought would be sweet, but really is kinda lame. Disaster strikes when Pedro is accused of not winning the majority vote and possibly committing voter fraud. (Sound familiar?) There is also a possible small-town murder being investigated by some new characters, as well, so lots of detective work.
This story does what NBC’s Parks and Recreation did: It uses a small town, and in this case more specifically a school, to shine a light on current political issues in a satirical way. It's a tasty bit of Napoleon's catch phrases along with a dose of political humor that hits very close to home. It really balances out perfectly. We get appearances by all of our favorite characters, including Tina the llama, who is still a fat lard that Napoleon has to feed dinner. I also like that we heard some new catch phrases, my personal favorite being the insult, “You’re a flipping book.” If you are a fan of the film, this is a truly fun read. I want to close with one fact: Ligers are real. Yep, you read right, they are real. Google it.
