Eight fifth-graders actively tackle both personal relationships and social issues in this epistolary tale. Scheerger does an expert job throughout. Moreover, the author infuses her story in nonpreachy ways with themes of kindness, respect for others, and the importance of acting responsibly, capped by a list of helpful web resources. --Booklist Inspired by their radical teacher, eight elementary school students speak up for what they believe in and make change in their school community. In Scheerger's middle-grade debut, she tackles issues of friendship, bullying, immigration, women's rights, access to education, and homelessness/poverty. Her characters are genuine and complex as they grow and change. A thoughtful exploration of the power of the collective voice--growing up is owning up and speaking up. --Kirkus Review Ms. Graham might be my all-time favorite teacher in a middle grade novel. Kids are going to love this. --Colby Sharp, teacher, blogger and co-founder of The Nerdy Book Club Operation Frog Effect is like The Breakfast Club for middle schoolers. It'll make you laugh, cheer, and strive to be a better person. --Shannon Hitchcock, author of Ruby Lee & Me and One True Way A perfect middle-grade read with characters you will cheer for. --Donna Gephart, author of Lily and Dunkin Eight unforgettable fifth graders, one remarkable young teacher. Once in a while you find a book that feels like a gift. Operation Frog Effect is one of those books. --Valerie Hobbs, author of Sheep
