Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Soneela Nankani narrates this activist’s how-to guide with the inspirational power of an enthusiastic and empathetic friend. Although the audiobook contains information on the technical aspects of activism—strategies, tactics, resources, organizing, budgets, and more—the narration is never dry. Nankani imparts the anger of the marginalized, the power of the community, and the compassion of the caring. She reads with conviction: ‘How do things get better? We make them better. We are half the world population, and we demand to be treated equally. That’s it. Full stop.’ Girls will find it hard hard to resist this powerful call to action.” AudioFile
“If I had a time machine, I would go back in time and give myself this book.” Book Riot
“An immensely valuable guidebook…Rich effortlessly breaks down complex strategies and concepts into practical know-how…With references to pop culture, social media, and timely example scenarios, this book is highly recommended for YA collections.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“Rich lays the groundwork for grassroots organizing…[and] encourages readers to hone in on the causes that most inspire them to act and to set clear goals…A go-­to resource for young activists.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“[An] essential guide to teen girl activism.” Autostraddle
“Incredibly detailed and extensive but fun and easy to read.” Creators Syndicate
