        September 29, 2014
        “Young people everywhere are rising up and directly creating the changes they want to see in their communities and around the world—right now.” Bolstered by numerous examples of real-life activism, debut author Thompson outlines ways that children and teens can become involved in their communities. Lists and bullet points offer pointers and direction (starting a “venture journal” to gather ideas is an early suggestion), and profiles of youth-founded organizations and young activists appear throughout, along with musings based on Thompson’s own nonprofit work and experience. From discovering potential causes and passions to creating business plans, soliciting
        donations, and being aware of legal and financial pitfalls, Thompson offers thorough, encouraging advice for the next generation of activists. Ages 12–up. Agent: Ammi-Joan Paquette, Erin Murphy Literary Agency.

        October 1, 2014
        Grades 7-10 Designed as a guide for young social entrepreneurs, this is a thorough and passionate manual for empowered readers to pursue their dreams of making the world a better place. Research strategies, practical advice, and guidance in the areas of budgeting, marketing, and presenting (among others) fill its pages and give readers the tools they need to make their business venture a success at any stage. While best suited to a teen collection, there is no shortage of examples of younger kids who have put their ideas into action and made a difference in their community. It covers an incredible breadth of detail while still managing to be succinct. Every chapter profiles a real-life changemaker, supplies the author's own experiences, and lists key concepts or steps pertaining to the chapter's topic. It is a book that forces readers to not only think realistically but also to think big. Tips and resource lists conclude, and the mantra that change starts with you will linger well beyond the final page.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)
