Reviews
Clear and unflinching yet accessible to a young audience, speaking to them gently when the content gets sensitive, emphasizing the need to remain safe when intervening, and providing them with a number of constructive tools to apply to their own lives. . . . A straightforward yet encouraging discussion on the fight against racism with a uniquely global perspective.
--School Library Journal (starred review)

Throughout the book, the author uses a comforting tone while acknowledging the weight of this subject matter. Frequent metaphors, such as climbing a mountain with a heavy backpack, help explain terms like equality, equity, and justice, with myriad infographics and visuals providing more context to this social justice resource.
