Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this young adult edition of She Said (2019), the best-selling book about the Harvey Weinstein case, coauthors and New York Times reporters Kantor and Twohey offer teen readers insights into how investigative journalism works. The book begins with brief accounts of the authors' backgrounds and motivations, along with exhortations about the social good that can come from careful investigation (wrongdoings exposed, voices returned to the silenced, justice restored). Next comes a detailed, event-by-event description of their investigation into Weinstein, set within appropriate and ample context. The accessible text, which includes explanations, character profiles, and conversations, moves along briskly. The authors emphasize Weinstein's power and influence, including the layers of secrecy that frustrated their efforts, and highlight the bravery of the women who came forward. They also reveal how extremely difficult it is to pursue and prove sexual harassment complaints, leaving the verdict in doubt until the very end. Soon to become a movie, this real-life account is gripping, and, thanks to its extremely satisfying conclusion, should inspire feminists and future investigative reporters alike."
