Publisher's Summary

If one small act can create a ripple across the universe...what happens when a whole group of kids joins together and acts? 

Told in eight perspectives, Operation Frog Effect is perfect for fans of Andrew Clements, Rob Buyea, and Sarah Weeks, and for anyone who wants to make a difference.

Hi--

It's us, Ms. Graham's class. We didn't mean to mess things up. But we did. We took things too far, and now Ms. Graham is in trouble - for something we did. We made a mistake. The question is, can we fix it? Ms. Graham taught us that we get to choose the kind of people we want to be and that a single act can create ripples. So get ready, world - we're about to make some ripples.

Sincerely,

Kayley, Kai, Henry, Aviva, Cecilia, Blake, Sharon, Emily (and Kermit, class frog)

Everyone makes mistakes. But what happens when your mistake hurts someone else? Told in eight perspectives, Operation Frog Effect celebrates standing up and standing together and tells the unforgettable story of how eight very different kids take responsibility for their actions and unite for a cause they all believe in.

Critic Reviews

Winner of the 2020 Mississippi Library Association Children's Book Award

A 2020-2021 Young Hoosier Book Award Nominee

A 2021-2022 Louisiana Young Readers Choice Award Nominated Title

"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)

"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

Great story! Great cast!

This was a great story that was told through the eyes of different students. Each had his or her own perspective that moved the story along in a really entertaining and, ultimately, touching way.

This is a very moving book!

This book had me so enthralled when I purchased the audio book that I went ahead and ordered the hard copy so I could follow along and see the drawings.
It is the best middle school book that I have read.
