Effie Green tries to turn her oh-so-average high school existence into the perfect teen movie moment.
Effie has a million reasons why her senior year hasn’t gone as planned — from the hideous bridesmaid dress at her older sister’s wedding, to a disastrous first kiss, to a complete lack of romantic attention from her boy-that-is-a-friend, Robbie.
In this complete collection of all six Effie Stories, Effie Green tries to turn her oh-so-average high school existence into the perfect teen movie moment.
The Effie Stories
Effie At The Wedding
Effie has a million reasons why she’s not thrilled to be at her sister’s wedding — and the monstrously pink bridesmaid’s dress isn’t even on the list. When Effie finds herself locked in the bathroom, she thinks she might just stay there. After all, it’s better than hearing from her mom about how often she’s been to the buffet or how beautiful Ophelia looks in her wedding dress. In this hysterical young adult short story, Effie will have to find a reason to celebrate… or get used to her porcelain throne.
George & Ophelia’s First Christmas
It’s George and Ophelia’s first Christmas as a married couple, but Effie is only half-concerned about the fact that her sister may be hiding the fact that she’s pregnant. All that Effie wants for Christmas this year is to go out on her first date with Robbie – her boy-that-is-a-friend. Asking Robbie out during a family gathering though, isn’t quite as easy as it seems.
Effie On a Date
Effie is less-than-thrilled when her best-friend and long-time crush, Robbie, asks her to join him and his new girlfriend on a double date. But when Effie sees her date, the tall, handsome Eric, the night looks like it’s taking a turn for the better.
But Eric isn’t the dreamboat he appears to be, and when her (always embarrassing) mother shows up on the date — and it’s actually a welcomed event — Effie realizes she’s on what could possibly be the worst date of all time.

Effie On Vacation
Effie is going on Spring Break with her mother, Aunt Rosie and a four-months-pregnant Ophelia, while her boy-that-is-a-friend is spending his vacation with his girlfriend and her family.
Still not over Robbie, Effie looks for a “spring fling” on the beaches of North Carolina. But when all is said and done, she’s pretty sure what she ends up with is NOT the stuff that romance novels are made of…

Effie Goes To Prom
When Robbie and Muffy break up just three weeks before prom, Robbie asks Effie to go as a friend. But Effie knows this is her chance to get Robbie to see her in a romantic way, and not in a platonic let’s-dare-each-other-to-eat-as-many-marshmallows-as-we-can way.
On the most important night of her high school life, will Effie finally get the romantic date she’s been hoping for?
