Summary

True stories from 17 YA authors about understanding what being an ally is, and using that knowledge as a springboard to improving being an ally to friends and strangers alike.

This book is for everyone. Because we can all be allies.
As an ally you use your power - no matter how big or small - to support others. You learn, and try, and mess up, and try harder. In this collection of true stories, 17 critically acclaimed and bestselling YA authors get real about being an ally, needing an ally, and showing up for friends and strangers.
From raw stories of racism and invisible disability to powerful moments of passing the mic, these authors share their truths. They invite you to think about your own experiences and choices and how to be a better ally.
There are no easy answers, but this book helps you ask better questions. Self-reflection prompts, resources, journaling ideas, and further reading suggestions help you find out what you can do. Because we're all in this together. And we all need allies.

A portion of the proceeds from this book goes to supporting charities.
