NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From two survivors of the Parkland, Florida, shooting comes a declaration for our times, and an in-depth look at the making of the #NeverAgain movement.
On February 14, 2018, seventeen-year-old David Hogg and his fourteen-year-old sister, Lauren, went to school at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, like any normal Wednesday. That day, of course, the world changed. By the next morning, with seventeen classmates and faculty dead, they had joined the leadership of a movement to save their own lives, and the lives of all other young people in America. It's a leadership position they did not seek, and did not wantbut events gave them no choice.
The morning after the massacre, David Hogg told CNN: "We're children. You guys are the adults. You need to take some action and play a role. Work together. Get over your politics and get something done."
This book is a manifesto for the movement begun that day, one that has already changed Americawith voices of a new generation that are speaking truth to power, and are determined to succeed where their elders have failed. With moral force and clarity, a new generation has made it clear that problems previously deemed unsolvable due to powerful lobbies and political cowardice will be theirs to solve. Born just after Columbine and raised amid seemingly endless war and routine active shooter drills, this generation now says, Enough. This book is their statement of purpose, and the story of their lives. It is the essential guide to the #NeverAgain movement.

This book gives me a glimmer of hope for the future of our country.
Why do I think the 1 star reviews devoid of a written review are politically motivated by people who never read the book? Because I'm likely right. I DID read the book. It's a simple book that basically explains David and Lauren's experiences from the past, on the day of the massacre and how they came to starting a very impressive movement to try and prevent this from continually occurring. They have more maturity than many adults, and certainly more than 99% of politicians, in contemporary society. I really wish that those who are so vehemently cruel to children who survived more than we could imagine and are taking a stand for others would just take the time to READ or LISTEN to something other than biased media. In no way, shape or form are they asking for or demanding the 2nd Amendment be abolished. In fact, David and Lauren's family are gun owners. It would be great if American's could come together and work on a real solution and not let absurd divisiveness lead to countless more deaths.
