The book also discusses the pro and cons of hot bed issues like gun control and immigration reform.

Reviews

Gr 7 Up-This guide introduces the major issues addressed by young activists and shares the stories of real teens fighting for what they believe in. Gay describes 10 causes and the ways in which kids and teens have taken action. Some sections stress facts and statistics more than activism, particularly in chapters on sexual assault and climate change. Because of the grassroots and often localized nature of activism and the emphasis on current topics, the sources cited are primarily blogs and websites. The title is thoroughly researched and highlights diverse teen activists across the country. Gay offers historical perspectives and many resources for further reading and viewing. The information is up-to-date, including the latest about gay marriage and immigration reform...VERDICT ... [O]nce teens begin to read, they will gain knowledge about timely topics and may be inspired to act for change. School Library Journal
