Reviews

"A moving account of hardships and triumphs that is bound to inspire future activists, this is a devastating but crucial read. " --Kirkus, Starred review

"Much more than a companion volume to the 2013 semidocumentary of the same title... this vibrant book stands on its own as a source of inspiration." --Booklist, Starred review

"This book must not be missed as it will be an award-winner." --VOYA, Starred review

"A vivid, heartrending portrait of resilience in the face of tremendous obstacles; a closing section details ways readers can take action." --Publishers Weekly
