Let Me Stand Alone: The Journals of Rachel Corrie | [Rachel Corrie]

Let Me Stand Alone: The Journals of Rachel Corrie

Rachel Corrie’s determination to make a better, more peaceful world took her from Olympia, Washington, to the Middle East, where she died in 2003 while trying to block the demolition of a Palestinian family’s home in the Gaza Strip. A twenty-three-year-old American activist, Corrie also possessed a striking gift for poetry, writing, and drawing. Let Me Stand Alone, a selection of her journals and letters as chosen by her family, reveals her story in her own hand, from her precocious reflections as a young girl to her final e-mails.

Publisher's Summary

Rachel Corrie’s determination to make a better, more peaceful world took her from Olympia, Washington, to the Middle East, where she died in 2003 while trying to block the demolition of a Palestinian family’s home in the Gaza Strip. A twenty-three-year-old American activist, Corrie also possessed a striking gift for poetry, writing, and drawing. Let Me Stand Alone, a selection of her journals and letters as chosen by her family, reveals her story in her own hand, from her precocious reflections as a young girl to her final e-mails. Corrie’s words - whether writing about the looming issues of our time or the ordinary angst of an American teen - bring to life all that it means to come of age: a dawning sense of self, a thirst for one’s own ideals, and an evolving connection to others, near and far.

What the Critics Say

"A testament to how deeply we need the power and vision and energy of young women to transform the world." (Eve Ensler, New York Times bestselling author)

"[Corrie’s] honest, sometimes scathing renditions of the dark passages and fierce attachments of adolescence and young womanhood in the 1990s possess authenticity and power." (Adrienne Rich, National Book Award–winning author)

"Opens a window on the maturation of a young woman seeking to make the world a better place through social activism." (Publishers Weekly)
