Product description

Review

"The world is a bit of a mess, but it's not always easy to figure out ways to help. Just in time for the midterm elections, How I Resist is a perfect activism guidebook, featuring essays, stories, songs, and more from celebrities and some of the biggest names in YA. Even in dark times, this anthology promotes hope, showing how individual voices and efforts can truly make a difference. " -- Bustle

"Candor and passion radiate from the 30 voices raised in this trenchant and timely compendium of interviews, essays, reflections, illustrations, and poems." --
Publisher's Weekly

"[Maureen Johnson] has done an exceptional job calling on different voices to share their wisdom and thoughts on making a difference" --
School Library Journal

"This offers plenty of access points for teens looking for advice, catharsis, and/or motivation." --
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

3.0 out of 5 stars difficult to decide if helpful or not
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on November 16, 2018
This is a very American focused book. Granted... I didn't read every story or interview, but I read about 1/2 of them and they were all American focused. Many talking about the current president, and I didn't really find it helpful. I didn't. Perhaps it's my mindset. If you want something changed, talk about it, work towards, get elected officials involved if you can, but talk and write and paint and work hard in your corner of the world to make a difference. You don't like that black people are treated poorly then model good behaviour and challenge those who need to be challenged. You don't like that abortion happens... get involved with folks who are fighting to make a difference. I saw some of this mindset portrayed, but often times it seems like the suggestions were subtly hidden. This leaves me questioning would teens really make that connection? I know my lad would miss a lot of it. I am finding it very difficult to give my opinion on this book. I would recommend that you read through the book before giving it to your younger teens... a couple of the articles had me going hmm... no.. don't think I want my lad reading this piece. But I'm a Canadian, reading a book very much geared to south of the border with many of the troubles mentioned, ergo it seems all just a bit distant to me.

I loooove the content of the book. I received a grant and decided to buy a class set for my students. All the books in the class set were brand new and beautifully crisp. However, absent minded I realized I bought a book for everyone but myself 😂 so separately I ordered one book. Attached is the picture of that one book. I don’t want to sound picky, but when I pay for new I expect new quality. Just be mindful that if you’re just ordering one for yourself the new quality may not be so “new”. That’s the only reason for the missing star. Other than that the content of the book and the class set I received were phenomenal.
