Dark forces are at work at Highworth Grange school: the student council has been taken over by a tyrannical villain with his own agenda. With the help of her brilliant band of misfit friends, a bad-tempered parrot, and a former nemesis, can Effie save the school she loves before it's too late?

It was a very funny book and I like how even though she faced a lot of challenges, she never stopped fighting for what she believed and the cause she fought for was a river clean up. I also love the way Effie and her friends found a way to conquer the challenges they faced, they would do whatever it took, even breaking into the school!

This was such a good book! I loved how it was funny but also focused on bigger, important issues such as Climate Change and democracy. I also liked how it was realistic how it portrayed school, friends, siblings and life. I think it's also an inspiring book that empowers people to help our planet.

I really enjoyed reading this book! It’s about a girl called Effie who feels very strong about saving the planet but when Matt Spader becomes student president it changes everything. Can Effie, her team of friends, family, her precious rival and a talking parrot save it all before it’s too late? My favourite character was Effie because I like if she sets her mind to something she can do it! I would definitely recommend this book to people who want to make a difference or is looking for a good read!

This is a good book. Effie is brave and stood up for what she believed in. She helped save the environment like I try to do.

I liked it because Effie belived that she could make a difference even when her friend broke his leg and her nemisis is declared prisedent of of the school because her friend was the prisedent who wanted to help Effie raise money to clean a river, but her nemisis wants to change the colour of the football team shirts. So Effie makes her voice heard.

I thought this book was really inspirational and made me think about the environment and how it is treated.It is now our responsibility to take care of our environment and ensure that it is kept clean and is a safe place for all wildlife and people.Every plastic bottle, every plastic straw and every other thing made from not biodegradable substances that is thrown in the ocean makes a difference in this world. A bad difference.My favourite character in this book was Effie because she stood up for what she believed in. I would recommend this book to anyone who thinks that we, as children can and should do something to stop this world from turning into a wasteland.

I thought this book was spectacular my favourite person is Effie but also Aaron Davis because I feel sorry that he broke his leg it interested me because I think it’s a really good idea doing a school fete but not if Matt Spader is in your way I would recommend this book to people who like nature other spending your money on football clothes.

I thought this book was incredible. It made me think that sitting still and quietly is no use if there is something to be done. It also made me think that the world needs more caring for and every one should help. my favourite character was Effie because she showed everyone the world needs saving. I would recommend this to anyone aged 9 - 16.

Effie didn’t get the election it was Aaron she liked Aaron a bit though. One day Effie asked Aaron to get more green spaces in the school.like use the reused water bottles and get more recycling bins. One day Aaron hurt his leg atucally he broke his leg.so Matt Spaders had to take over which was horrible… well Matt was Aaron’s best friend bet Matt was no good at green spaces and recycling.one day Effie went out with her friends called Jess,Angelica,Kevin,Zo,and Ruby. They saw a lake full of litter. They decided it was on Saturday and Matt has his votes on Saturday oh no.Effie decided to make a group to stop him and they did it.Aaron said when he came back he would start it back to normal. So they all went to sort the lake out even with Aaron and her friends.the end! My favourite person was Effie because she tried to save the school with all her might. I recommend it to anyone that likes saving the planet and likes a mystery.

I really liked this book and it was really interesting to read. I liked how the characters acted and out of all of the characters I definitely think that Effie is my favourite character throughout the whole series of the two books. I would definitely recommend it to people that prefer non-fiction books and factual events such as climate change. I would definitely read this again.
