Rating: THREE STARS
From the bestselling author of Dumped, Actually comes a laugh-out-loud story about saving your job…and maybe saving the planet in the process.
Meet Ellie Cooke. When it comes to all things environmental she’s, well, a bit ‘green’. It’s not that she doesn’t care about things like climate change and plastic pollution, it’s just that life has always got in the way of that sort of thing.
But when the PR firm Ellie works for is taken over by keen environmentalist Nolan Reece, it’s clear that if she wants to save her job, she’s going to have to get serious about being green—or face being recycled.
Going green is no walk in the park, though. It involves a lot of big changes, tough choices…and at least one case of accidentally showing your knickers off to your boss.
Can Ellie do enough to save her job, and maybe do her bit to help save the planet while she’s at it? And what will Nolan think of her, now that she can’t stop thinking about him…?
I received this ARC from the publisher through Netgalley. Thank you!
Going Green is the first book that I read by Nick Spalding. Going Green is a book about climate change and recyclable energy. I liked the way that Nick Spalding tell us about climate change and we learn about the effects of climate changes along with the characters.
Ellie Cooke works in PR Strategem and she likes her job but now she finds out that she will have a new boss Nolan Reece, a successful marketing entrepreneur who wants his new employees to be more green and to be more aware of the environment.
Nolan Reece announces that he needs to fire two employees, Ellie Cooke is trying to demonstrate to her new boss that she deserves to be kept employed and she is green and she is very aware of climate change.
Ellie was funny in her attempt to convince her boss that she is an activist and very aware of the environment. In her attempt to save her job, she learned more about the planet. The meetings with her new clients helped Ellie to realize that she needs to change if she wants to contribute to saving the planet.
I liked Going Green By Nick Spalding and I learned more about climate change. I liked Ellie because she changes her view about climate change and she changes her life to contribute to saving the planet. I think that sometimes she was too obsessive.

About the author
Nick Spalding is an author who, try as he might, can’t seem to write anything serious.
Before becoming a full-time author, he worked in the communications industry, mainly in media and marketing. As talking rubbish for a living can get tiresome (for anyone other than a politician), he thought he’d have a crack at writing comedy fiction – with a very agreeable level of success so far, it has to be said. Nick has now sold over two million books – including a million books sales with Amazon Publishing alone. This flabbergasts him every single day.
Nick lives in the South of England with his lovely (and extremely patient) wife. He’s now in his mid forties – and is rather annoyed at the universe about it, because it gave him no choice in the matter. He’s also addicted to Thai food, still thinks Batman is just about the coolest thing on Earth, and has a dreadful singing voice.
