Publisher: Scholastic

Effie has just started at a new school where she soon realises that some things could do with being changed. After observing her surroundings for a couple of days, she decides to run for Junior Student President in the school council elections.

Backed by her loyal campaign team and her next-door neighbour, Effie aims to win the election and beat her nemesis, proving to her parents that her school work won’t suffer and ensure that the school environment is a fairer place for everyone. Over the course of the campaign, Effie gains a great group of friends and learns how to work together with someone you might not see eye-to-eye with, always aiming to see the positives even when things don’t go to plan.

Laura Wood brings us a contemporary book for fierce pre-teens who want to make the world a better place. Effie aims to make her new school a more inclusive space which encourages everyone to fulfil their potential. Inspired by the Women’s March of 2017, this book provides girls with the belief that they can make a difference, even with the smallest of things. This is a book which will resonate with all girls.
