Professional reviews

"Listeners will hear every note of conviction, frustration, fierce honesty, and fearlessness that this inclusive lineup of celebrities, bestselling authors, and activists is ready to share with the next generation of bold leaders and inspiring game-changers. Editor Maureen Johnson's voice is encouraging and inviting as she introduces listeners to these audio versions of formative personal essays, poems, and interviews contributed by those who are standing up for progress in America. As the sole narrator, Soneela Nankani has the challenging task of embodying the dozens of diverse voices featured in the collection, and she hits every mark. Nankani's performance bolsters this unique audio experience, which serves as an essential guide for the developing teen and adult activist. J.E.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
