Staying true to our March 2007 PDL theme ([...]), I think it's safe to say that this young man has laid down his net and is moving headlong into some pretty powerful "follower-ship." Just in case you were wondering, Zach wants to end slavery and human trafficking in his lifetime. He's making a huge difference by creating awareness of a very dire crisis in our world, speaking before thousands of people and simply stepping up to the plate to do his part.

Zach's book is a very engaging and educational read, though it always feels true to the style of a normal 15-year-old. Yes, it's geared toward a younger generation, but the beauty of his writing style is that any normal kid his age (or any adult, for that matter) will see himself/herself as a potential agent of change. Because he's not lofty in his approach, what he's done comes off as doable for the rest of us too.

If you have kids, you'll want to buy this book--if only so that Zach can be an inspiration to them. And maybe in the process, we'll have more kids like him springing up to embrace a hurt world (I think everyone would agree that this would be a good thing). Even if you don't have kids, buy this book and you might be surprised to find his passion is contagious enough for you to change the world, too.

Zach Hunter's youthful writing style brings home a very real and timely point to all. Is does not take "Age" to make a difference in this world, only passion and a committment to see your vision through to the end.

Zach's book speaks to adults as well as teens. So far I have purchased, read and given away three copies of this book, including one to my 12 year old daughter. Every person I have spoken to about this book has been impressed, and many have gone on to buy a copy for themselves and/or their own teenager.

This is a great selection for a teen or adult book study group.

Never has such a bold message flowed with such simple power. Zach will change your life but more importantly it will change the lives of the hundreds of thousands of slaves living in despair. This is an easy-to-read and easy-to-live message filled with quotes, testimonies, and straight up wisdom from 15year old. Zach is one of my new heroes.

15 of 19 people found the following review helpful By Alan Dean on February 19, 2007
Format: Paperback
The author seems like a down-to-earth, normal 15 year-old. Oh, yeah -- and he wants to end slavery around the world in his lifetime. Only problem, there are 27 million slaves in captivity around the world. Zach communicates with passion the stories of people who have inspired him to lead a global effort to fund the rescue of slaves. Young people will be similarly inspired; adults will be challenged and educated, we all may be changed. Get this book for every kid you know -- this generation will believe they can change the world.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on December 28, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book has shown me that there is something that kids can do to help the human trafficking.
After just the first chapter, I was awakened to the needs in this world. because I didn't really know how much human slave trafficking is going on in this world. Zach Hunter ( the author) asks you what do you think you can do. And at the end of every chapter there is a place where the author asks you questions and recommends Bible passages.
This is a book that is perfect for people 12 and up.
By the way, I am 12 and I think the book is very interesting and very God oriented.
Truly a book that could change this teenage generation.

Format: Paperback
In a world where it seems that no one champions cause of those who cannot speak for themselves, Zach Hunter steps up to the plate and delivers an issue that we may perceive as being a part of the past. The book is an easy, well spoken read that challenges you to take a step out and speak up for those who cannot. It is a guide book that entails how you can help and how we all can defend our fellow brothers and sisters in the world. Indeed, we can all be the change...Kudos Zach!
