I don't read much non-fiction or memoirs, but this was something I've been wanting to read for a long time. This book is troubling and encouraging all at the same time. Hopefully these stories that these teens have shared will spark something more in adults. I wasn't surprised that this was hard to read. At some points I had to take breaks because I was so upset about what happened and their recounts of certain moments. That's why it took a while for me to listen to this. I should've been able to listen to it straight through. This is what made the book though. Because anything about this topic shouldn't be easy to listen to. No matter what side your own. Hopefully this means that more people will listen to what they've said and make necessary changes. I also loved seeing how this movement came about. This was an awesome story of how they turned their tragedy into triumph. Their movement and the teens are so inspiring. For them to start this right after that horrific day, is.... I can't even describe it. Inspiring seems so inadequate. However, my favorite part of the book was the policy recommendations. They were common sense and they gave solutions. They didn't just make noise about the problem. These teens came with solutions. Gives me hope that someone that reads this will be listening. I'm sure I didn't do this justice, but if you can't tell, I loved it.
