    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 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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    So much of this resonated with me, and inspired me. I want to hunt down the finished version to see the comics and music not included. I received this book as an ARC in a Goodreads giveaway. ...

    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 ...

    A really inspiring book that made me really want to go out and make a difference. ...

    This is the kind of book that needs to be given out in schools, stocked in all libraries and e-copies readily available at a good price for those who read online. The essays in this collection are inspiring, evocative and act as s call to arms for anyone who picks it up. I found ...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) Lately I have been feeling so drained. So tired of fighting. So tired of explaining and late night poster making. I know more than ever, that it's what we need to ...

    Summary: The youth of today are getting more tech savvy, and understanding much more of what is going on in the world than I feel like I was at their age.  They see the issues prevalent in the world that they will inherit; and they're ready to start making a difference.  The probl...

    This is this the kind of book I wish I had as a teen. Especially when I was trying to figure out where my voice fit into the world that often times felt like it was drawn out by the angry voices of adults who were too busy yelling at one another vs taking the time to listen to each oth...

    Maureen Johnson, a bestselling YA author and found of the site YA for Obama, and Tim Federle, a highly lauded writer who has adapted stories like Tuck Everlasting for Broadway and Ferdinand for film, have collected a series of thirty essays, poems, and interviews about Resistance by we...

    No matter who you are and where you live, you have to admit there are problems in every country and the world. Individual and global issues, and each one affects us differently. No matter what you are passionate about, looking at what it takes to make a difference can seem overwhelming...

    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...

    Full of stories that try to shed light in a world that some feel is slipping into a dark period, How I Resist will make readers laugh, or cry, or stop and think. All of those are good things. But if these stories, songs, poems, and essays do their jobs - then readers will do more tha...

    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 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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Full of stories that try to shed light in a world that some feel is slipping into a dark period, How I Resist will make readers laugh, or cry, or stop and think. All of those are good things. But if these stories, songs, poems, and essays do their jobs - then readers will do more tha...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) Lately I have been feeling so drained. So tired of fighting. So tired of explaining and late night poster making. I know more than ever, that it's what we need to ...

    Summary: The youth of today are getting more tech savvy, and understanding much more of what is going on in the world than I feel like I was at their age.  They see the issues prevalent in the world that they will inherit; and they're ready to start making a difference.  The probl...

    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...

    Full of stories that try to shed light in a world that some feel is slipping into a dark period, How I Resist will make readers laugh, or cry, or stop and think. All of those are good things. But if these stories, songs, poems, and essays do their jobs - then readers will do more tha...
