Critic Reviews

"Teen activist Marley Dias's passion for social action is amplified through Damaras Obi's youthful and upbeat narration.... Obi's performance is empowering; she embodies the tough and honest conversations Dias is fostering with her peers and offering up tips, advice, and encouragement on how to support a cause. Cheery pings throughout the narration highlight impactful quotes that will inspire anyone who wants to make a difference." (AudioFile)
