    • Abstract:
      Summary: A young adult anthology featuring fictional stories of everyday resistance. You might be the kind of person who stands up to online trolls. Or who marches to protest injustice. Perhaps you are #DisabledAndCute and dancing around your living room, alive and proud. Or perhaps you are the trans mentor that you wish you had when you were younger. Maybe you call out false allies, or stand up to loved ones. Maybe you speak your truth and drop the mic, or maybe you take it with you when you leave. This anthology features fictional stories--in poems, prose, and art--that reflect a slice of the varied and limitless ways that readers like you resist every day. Take the Mic's powerful collection of stories features work by literary luminaries and emerging talent alike, including Newbery-winner Jason Reynolds, New York Times bestseller Samira Ahmed, anthologist and contributor Bethany C. Morrow, Darcie Little Badger, Keah Brown, Laura Silverman, L.D. Lewis, Sofia Quintero, Ray Stoeve, Yamile Mendez, and Connie Sun, with cover and interior art by Richie Pope.

Booklist Reviews 2019 September #1

A "harmless" prank after band practice and a "friendly" game of chess are but two situations in this anthology, where characters must choose between being true to themselves and buckling to oppressive forces. For Allie in "The Helpers," the specter of racism in the wake of a potential terrorist attack conflicts with her desire to aid rescue workers. In Sophia Quintero's "Real Ones," Cami must decide whether to bend to peer pressure to fight another girl or seek a more peaceful solution. In all cases, this collection of 13 stories, poems, and graphic narratives strives to present occasions of resistance in the everyday, as imagined by such names as Jason Reynolds, Samira Ahmed, and Darcie Little Badger. One laudable aspect of this collection is its accessible presentation of sensitive situations, which invite readers to engage in vital and important conversations. Whether telling the story of a trans boy standing up for gender-neutral bathrooms or presenting a poet's ruminations on being the "good" kind of Muslim, this collection is perfect for the young and politically minded.
