"A powerful investigative work." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"There are very few books that I call 'must read.' This is one of them. In Raising Them Right, Kyle Spencer exhaustively details how the far right is trying to captivate and hold America's youth. Her expose will startle you, surprise you, and frighten you. And I say all that as someone who comes from the far right, is still of the right in my politics, and who has spent much time myself the past ten years speaking to and motivating young conservatives. I don't anymore. Because these young people are being radicalized. Kyle makes that clear in this book. Read it. Your country needs you to." -- Joe Walsh, Former U.S. Congressman and Presidential Candidate

"Kyle Spencer has gone behind the curtain of the far-right youth movement and given us a fascinating--and terrifying--account of the personalities and tactics they deftly deploy to provide a sense of belonging for many young people. We would all be wise to read and learn from her experience." -- Rachel Vindman, cohost The Suburban Women Problem, a podcast from @RedWineBlueUSA

"In Raising Them Right, Kyle Spencer shows how the Trumpist political message has captured hearts and spleens within a large segment of America's splintered youth culture. Since the 1960s, Democrats have taken the votes of young people for granted, but Spencer expertly profiles a new generation of right-wing activists who have banded together to build a movement that is brash, transgressive, and gleefully eager to wage war on the woke. Liberals may not like what these rebellious young conservatives have to say, but they cannot ignore the growing power of their ideas and their confrontational political style." -- Andrew Rice, a contributing editor for New York magazine and the author of The Year That Broke America
