In this compilation, young citizens describe the moments they were inspired to pursue their passions to improve their world. Their methods and causes are diverse, and their stories highlight their innovative ways of identifying and addressing problems in society. The achievements here are impressive, from Craig Kielburger's founding of Free the Children to raise awareness of child labor to Lyndsay Poaps becoming the youngest elected official in Vancouver history. These stories counter the myth of youth as self-absorbed slackers, presenting a bracing new generation of activist leaders.

Very exciting book. Inspiring. So reassuring to see young people being so brave, devoted and talented
Felt high after reading!

This book is inspiring (as intented), but also practical. There's a lot of ways people can make a difference locally and internationally. This book is beautifully written and can inspire a generation. I wish it was required reading. My one complaint: I wish I knew how these activists paid their bills. Are they full time activists? Do they hold down part time jobs? How do they fund their organizations?
