Vote for Effie

Book Synopsis

Join Effie Kostas as she fights to become Student Council President in her new school. With a campaign team of loveable misfits, she tackles the truly important subjects:

gender imbalance

outdated school conventions…

and good-looking boys stealing the last slice of chocolate cake at lunchtime.

A laugh-out-loud rallying call for switched-on kids everywhere.

Vibrant illustrations by Mirelle Ortega bring Effie and her friends to life in this joyful celebration of one girl’s mission to change the world.

Our Review Panel says...

Sometimes you meet a character in a book who you not only like a lot, but also think that if you met them in real life you would want to be friends with them. So it is with Effie in ‘Vote for Effie’, a very real twelve year old girl, starting at a new school part of the way through Year 8. Most children have anxieties about starting secondary school or any new school and this book explores this fear in a lively and fast paced story. But Vote for Effie is more than just a story about starting a new school, as it covers injustice and women’s rights as well and is immensely readable…
