Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-10-- A companion to the author's well-received Kid's Guide to Social Action (Free Spirit, 1991). Lewis relates the stories of 18 young people who responded resourcefully and heroically to what they perceived as crisis situations. One died after saving his friend from drowning; another kept fighting to cleanse the environment while being treated for a fatal brain tumor. Other subjects include an ex-addict and runaway who counsels younger children against drugs and violence, and a girl who testified against her sexually abusive babysitter. A hearing-disabled youth reaches out to help others, and a boy gives his prized Nikes to a shoeless stranger on a cold night. Another chapter describes the efforts of a boy who defeated the plans of a developer to build on a wetland. The book is divided into four topics: crime, social action, heroism, and the environment. The young people here are of varied ethnic and economic backgrounds and live in many parts of the country. There is some condescension in the author's tone, which seems to be at odds with what is intended to be a serious work addressed to young people concerned about their world and its future. Also, the chapter structure is repetitive. However, the book is sure to provoke thought and discussion. --Libby K. White, Schenectady County Public Library, NY

I came across this book and really like it. It's always a pleasure for me to read about kids making a difference.

Kids need to be encouraged as much as possible and this book does it for me.

I am so glad I purchased this book! I bought this book for my 12 year old son. At first glance he moved it to the side a few times, but then I had him start reading it for his nightly required silent reading homework. He was amazed at the stories and didn't want to put it down. Sometimes its hard to make a really good impression on a pre-teen, but this book grabbed his attention and got him thinking:)

I liked this book because it was interesting and had lots of facts. I bought this book for one of my classes in school and read it in two days. It was sad in some parts of it because some of the kids died but they did what they were supposed to do on earth and went to heaven. All together this was a great book.
