PRAISE FOR VOTE FOR EFFIE:
Laura Wood’s Vote for Effie (Scholastic) features an exuberant protagonist: huge-haired, stationery-obsessed Euphemia “Effie” Kostas gets off to a shaky start at her new school by antagonising popular junior council president Aaron Davis – then decides to run against him. Can Effie and her campaign team mobilise a groundswell of support? Wood’s deft, hilarious writing explores big themes – fairness, feminism and refusing to accept a dispiriting status quo – while Mirelle Ortega’s cheery illustrations do full justice to Effie’s luxuriant locks. - Children’s and teens roundup: the best new picture books and novels, The Guardian.
