    Thanks to NetGalley for an advanced ebook in exchange for an honest review. 3.75 stars A series of essays, poems, comics, in depth interviews and even a song aim to encourage a continuation of resistance in today's(chiefly the U.S.) political climate. Many big name writers, act...

    **I received this book as part of a Goodreads First Reads Giveaway.** Even though this book was geared toward Young Adult readers, I learned a lot from it. And it was entertaining. The essays and interviews were extremely relatable. And I highly recommend it for readers and resister...

    BookTube-A-Thon July 30, 2018 - August 5, 2018 Challenge #7 - Read 7 books At the age of 19 I made a goal for myself to read 1,000 books before my 30th birthday. Now at the age of 27 this will be the book that gets me to that goal! ?Resistance isn?t a set of steps - it is ...

    I like what this book is trying to do and it has some fantastic content, but unfortunately it fell a bit short of what I was hoping for. How I Resist is a collection of essays and other content (songs, poems, illustrations, interviews etc.) from a variety of authors, activists, celebri...

    This is an outstanding collection of personal stories, poems, music, and interviews from some of the most influential icons in music, acting, politics, sports, and writing, etc... of the 21st century. Although marketed for YA, anyone can read this and get inspired. I thoroughly enjoyed...

    What a wonderful collection of stories and tips. It?s so motivational and weirdly optimistic in a way. It makes you feel powerful, showing you all the ways to help, to change things. It assure you that you?re not alone. It is an experience I recommend, certainly not just for teens!...

    I might be in overload at this point with the amount of short story or compilations I've read recently, but if I try to remain as objective as possible it was a perfect mix of voices to talk about how they resist, hope, dream, stay sane in an unstable world-- they touch on technology a...

    How I Resist is a YA anthology and it is AMAZING. It has a vast list of diverse contributors, including authors like Malinda Lo and Sabaa Tahir, actors such as Javier Munoz and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (and his husband) and many others, including activists and journalists. It has essays, p...

    I liked the pieces by the authors and personalities I know the best from their work. I enjoyed Libby Bray's piece the most! Reading this book has made me think again about activism, a different time, a different place, yet it goes on. Fear really seems to be what guides the status quo...

    3,7/5 || The read harder challenge 2018 - An essay anthology || ...

    I received an advanced copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I watched this book become a thing on Twitter. I don?t know if you remember because honestly, I blocked it out, but 2016/17 was a dumpster fire. After then election Maureen Johnson put out a call to ac...

    This book is a collection of mini essays by diverse voices of what resistance means to each one of them. The essays are about a lot of different topics but there is a big focus on what resistance means in the age of Trump (quite understandable), how can a young person voice their opini...

    Very promising idea for an anthology, but the execution is poor. It's a shame, because there are some genuinely excellent writings in this collection . . . but there's also a lot that misses the mark. I'm scratching my head looking at the list of contributors. I get that there are a lo...

    A lot of strong contributors in this one. How I Resist had a mix of interviews, personal essays, poems, and even a song, which I think worked well together. The placement of the pieces in the anthology felt very purposeful and I think that it paid off. Johnson definitely did a grea...

    While I know many adults feel or felt hopeless after Tr*mp was elected, I can't imagine how teens too young to vote might feel. This book, compiled/narrated by Maureen Johnson and Tim Federle, bring together a diverse and dynamic group of voices that come from all angles: the literary ...

    I needed that. To get fired up again, to refuel in order to resist. And to laugh out loud. Libba Bray?s essay actually made me snort. Yep, I needed that. As with any anthology, not every piece is strong, but it was a good reminder to keep doing what we can. Including reading. Rea...

    Perfect for my 9th graders to read ...

    very informative and interesting anthology ...

    This review was originally published on Mass Consternation. I received this book for free from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. If you've read my other reviews, you'll know that if it's bad, I'll say so, regardless of how I received the book. I chatted with my neighbo...

    It is so easy to lose hope and feel overwhelmed. Things are scary and it seems like a lot of people are either ignoring it or actively celebrating it. And it can be hard to keep resisting when it seems like it's not doing very much good. You no sooner get your elected officials to...

    ARC Review: How I Resist An Anthology edited by Maureen Johnson and Tim Federle Release date: May 1, 2018 Regardless of whether you are an American citizen, you're going to want to get your hands on a copy of How I Resist. This incredibly important anthology includes stories, i...

    This was great! I don't necessarily agree with everything everyone said or has written or created before, but this is an impressive collection of hope, resistance, ideas, guidance, pain and change. I love how much diversity there was, the authors, the topics, the pieces and how they ...

    This is a Goodreads win review. I believe every person in the USA should have equal rights and be allowed to be active in government. However I think they gave this book the wrong name. For the content in the book they should have called it How many ways can we trash President Trump an...

    I will definitely pass this book along to my teenagers. The 6 ways to react to media listed by Jonny Sun especially resonated with me, as well as the emphasis by multiple people that one person can make a difference even if it doesn't feel like it. A Few Quotes from the Book "...

    This is going to be a ready recommendation for my students. I can't think of a single one of my kids who wouldn't love this. Jason Reynolds made a strong case for how difficult it is to be hopeless when you work with kids and teens because they don't understand our generation's hatred ...

    How I Resist is an uplifting collection of essays, comics, songs, and interviews by a wide variety of voices, including the LGBTQ community, POCs, and the disabled. It's a good starting point to get motivated, maybe especially for teens, but it's really only scratching the surface. Wha...

    While I know many adults feel or felt hopeless after Tr*mp was elected, I can't imagine how teens too young to vote might feel. This book, compiled/narrated by Maureen Johnson and Tim Federle, bring together a diverse and dynamic group of voices that come from all angles: the literary ...

    What a wonderful collection of stories and tips. It?s so motivational and weirdly optimistic in a way. It makes you feel powerful, showing you all the ways to help, to change things. It assure you that you?re not alone. It is an experience I recommend, certainly not just for teens!...

    I might be in overload at this point with the amount of short story or compilations I've read recently, but if I try to remain as objective as possible it was a perfect mix of voices to talk about how they resist, hope, dream, stay sane in an unstable world-- they touch on technology a...

    I liked the pieces by the authors and personalities I know the best from their work. I enjoyed Libby Bray's piece the most! Reading this book has made me think again about activism, a different time, a different place, yet it goes on. Fear really seems to be what guides the status quo...

    I needed that. To get fired up again, to refuel in order to resist. And to laugh out loud. Libba Bray?s essay actually made me snort. Yep, I needed that. As with any anthology, not every piece is strong, but it was a good reminder to keep doing what we can. Including reading. Rea...

    It is so easy to lose hope and feel overwhelmed. Things are scary and it seems like a lot of people are either ignoring it or actively celebrating it. And it can be hard to keep resisting when it seems like it's not doing very much good. You no sooner get your elected officials to...

    ARC Review: How I Resist An Anthology edited by Maureen Johnson and Tim Federle Release date: May 1, 2018 Regardless of whether you are an American citizen, you're going to want to get your hands on a copy of How I Resist. This incredibly important anthology includes stories, i...

    This was great! I don't necessarily agree with everything everyone said or has written or created before, but this is an impressive collection of hope, resistance, ideas, guidance, pain and change. I love how much diversity there was, the authors, the topics, the pieces and how they ...

    This is a Goodreads win review. I believe every person in the USA should have equal rights and be allowed to be active in government. However I think they gave this book the wrong name. For the content in the book they should have called it How many ways can we trash President Trump an...

    I will definitely pass this book along to my teenagers. The 6 ways to react to media listed by Jonny Sun especially resonated with me, as well as the emphasis by multiple people that one person can make a difference even if it doesn't feel like it. A Few Quotes from the Book "...

    This is going to be a ready recommendation for my students. I can't think of a single one of my kids who wouldn't love this. Jason Reynolds made a strong case for how difficult it is to be hopeless when you work with kids and teens because they don't understand our generation's hatred ...

    How I Resist is an uplifting collection of essays, comics, songs, and interviews by a wide variety of voices, including the LGBTQ community, POCs, and the disabled. It's a good starting point to get motivated, maybe especially for teens, but it's really only scratching the surface. Wha...

    I have a feeling this is going to be my favourite book of the year; I found it so incredibly insightful, thought-provoking, beautiful and by god is it inspiring (inspiring in the sense that it?s inspiring me to take action and resist). It took me awhile to read it because I wante...

    Very promising idea for an anthology, but the execution is poor. It's a shame, because there are some genuinely excellent writings in this collection . . . but there's also a lot that misses the mark. I'm scratching my head looking at the list of contributors. I get that there are a lo...

    While I know many adults feel or felt hopeless after Tr*mp was elected, I can't imagine how teens too young to vote might feel. This book, compiled/narrated by Maureen Johnson and Tim Federle, bring together a diverse and dynamic group of voices that come from all angles: the literary ...

    I needed that. To get fired up again, to refuel in order to resist. And to laugh out loud. Libba Bray?s essay actually made me snort. Yep, I needed that. As with any anthology, not every piece is strong, but it was a good reminder to keep doing what we can. Including reading. Rea...

    What a wonderful collection of stories and tips. It?s so motivational and weirdly optimistic in a way. It makes you feel powerful, showing you all the ways to help, to change things. It assure you that you?re not alone. It is an experience I recommend, certainly not just for teens!...

    I might be in overload at this point with the amount of short story or compilations I've read recently, but if I try to remain as objective as possible it was a perfect mix of voices to talk about how they resist, hope, dream, stay sane in an unstable world-- they touch on technology a...
