Publisher's Summary

This audiobook presents an all-star collection of essays about activism and hope, edited by best-selling YA author Maureen Johnson.

Now, more than ever, young people are motivated to make a difference in a world they're bound to inherit. They're ready to stand up and be heard - but with much to shout about, where they do they begin?

What can I do? How can I help?

How I Resist is the response, and a way to start the conversation. To show listeners that they are not helpless, and that anyone can be the change. A collection of essays, songs, and interviews about activism and hope, How I Resist features an all-star group of contributors, including John Paul Brammer, Libba Bray, Lauren Duca, Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband Justin Mikita, Alex Gino, Hebh Jamal, Malinda Lo, Dylan Marron, Hamilton star Javier Muñoz, Rosie O'Donnell, Junauda Petrus, Jodi Picoult, Jason Reynolds, Karuna Riazi, Maya Rupert, Dana Schwartz, Dan Sinker, Ali Stroker, Jonny Sun (a.k.a. @jonnysun), Sabaa Tahir, Shaina Taub, Daniel Watts, Jennifer Weiner, Jacqueline Woodson, and more, all edited and compiled by New York Times best-selling author Maureen Johnson.

In How I Resist, listeners will find hope and support through voices that are at turns personal, funny, irreverent, and instructive. Not just for a young adult audience, this incredibly impactful collection will appeal to listeners of all ages who are feeling adrift and looking for guidance.

How I Resist is the kind of audiobook people will be discussing for years to come.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"As the sole narrator, Soneela Nankani has the challenging task of embodying the dozens of diverse voices featured in the collection, and she hits every mark. Nankani's performance bolsters this unique audio experience, which serves as an essential guide for the developing teen and adult activist." (AudioFile)

just what I needed

It's been a pretty crappy week in the news, this is just what I needed: encouragement to keep speaking out; to hear others' experiences and the choices they made to resist. loved! #anthology #ownvoices #resist #tagsgiving #sweepstakes
