I love this book. Whoever hasn't read it should. I think Its mostly about having the GUTS to face your fears. Plus, I'm pretty sure A LOT of people have emetophobia. ( the fear of vomiting) Plus,I think I do. Even though Raina Telgmeier has written a lot of successful books. I personally think this is one of the best, from the author who brought you Smile,Sisters, Drama, Ghosts, and now Guts. Read this book!

This book is the most inspiring book I have ever read. The tells the story of people who faced many hardships since they were children. It shows how they fought against what they were forced to do. And in the end they did succeed. This book should be read by people of all ages because they will get the same will power that these activist had since childhood. I believe that once the reader finishes this book, they will surely fell very motivated to do the same for them and the people around them.
Everyone has been a child once, and while most grow up to live a normal life, some grow up to be passionate activists about problems they experienced as a child. Did you know that Alexander Hamilton, an activist for liberty and freedom, was born on an island? Or that Autumn Peltier became an activist because her family had unclean water to drink? Some of these activists have unlikely childhoods, as well as a figure in their life that guided them into activism. In their community around them, they recognized problems, such as segregation, slavery, or inequality. To read more about these activists’ childhoods, read Kid Activists. I really liked learning about where these activists started, and how their history helped them become activists. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars, and recommend it to kids and anyone interested in history.
People often say: “You’re just a kid, you can’t do anything”. Well, some kids like Ruby Bridges, did do something! She faced crowds that said that black kids can’t go to white schools. But she went to the school anyway! Or Rosa Parks, who refused to move to a different seat so a white passenger could sit.
This book tells the true childhood stories of kid activists. Such stories like Helen Keller, the blind and deaf girl who stood up for disabled people. Frederick Douglass taught escaped slaves; Harvey Milk thought everyone should be treated equal, Iqbal Masih fought to end child slavery, while being a slave himself. And Malala Yousafzai thought that everyone should have education. After all, in order to become an adult, you must be a kid. So ignore those people that say kids can’t do anything and go out there and do something! This book was seriously good, and I couldn’t put it down. I’m going to go see if my library has the rest of the series because it was so good.
