Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* This is a detailed, totally relatable account of how the anti-gun, anti-school-violence grassroots movement #NeverAgain grew and gained momentum and turned into the March 2018 March for Our Lives, an event that drew an estimated one million participants to Washington, D.C. The story is narrated by the teens who organized the march, mostly survivors of the February 14, 2018, Parkland High School shooting. Their testimonies begin on the afternoon of the 14th, as they're frantically texting friends and trying to reunite with parents in the aftermath of that event, and culminate six weeks later as they wait for their turns to speak on stage in front of the massive audience. They tell of gathering at friends' houses in the days immediately following the shooting, seeking comfort but also resolving to do something about their experiences. They describe the international outpouring of support prompted by press coverage and social media and candidly address both their public and private emotional responses. The contributions, mostly essays, are written in first person, and the accounts come across as genuine and authentic. This is a clarion call to action for teens, by teens, and it is moving and powerful.--Kathleen McBroom Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Through the collective voices of students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, following the events of Feb. 14, 2018, a rallying cry for fighting gun violence emerges. Chapters are told in rotating perspectives that represent multiple students and focus less on the shooting itself and more on their processing of the trauma. The accounts also convey how quickly survivors mobilized after the mass shooting, sharing their outrage through social media and news outlets, and speaking directly to representatives. Speeches written and delivered by students at the March 2018 March for Our Lives are integrated, while photographs show powerful moments of protest as well as quieter interactions between Stoneman Douglas students. Through honest and stirring narratives, the contributors encourage readers to join a movement of monumental importance. Ages 12-up. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
