In the latest semi-autobiographical book from Jarad Greene (A-Okay), Jay faces a new world of friendships, self-discovery, and stress about the future as he enters his freshman year of high school.


The start of Jay’s freshman year is full of new things…. New friends. New classes. New challenges.

To top it off, his mom and dad won’t get off his back about preparing for college. So when Jay finds himself enrolled in Theater 101, his parents couldn’t be happier. “That’ll look great on your college application!” they say. But when the class begins, Jay finds himself struggling like never before. Turns out balancing Shakespeare with biology and geometry is a lot harder than he thought. Will Jay be able to step into the spotlight and deliver an A+ performance?


Refreshingly witty and honest, author/illustrator Jarad Greene’s A for Effort is a heartfelt exploration of how it’s not always the outcome but the journey itself that truly matters.
