Gr 6 Up–Kindness is celebrated and explored in this fantastic anthology curated by Lady Gaga and her Born This Way Foundation team of reporters. Stories by and for young adults highlight inspirational, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful moments that led to personal and communal transformation. Each narrative depicts the power of an individual and what happened when they took a stand and chose kindness. Every story also features empowering messages from Lady Gaga. The entertainer’s own story, “The Value of Negative Space,” sets a positive, empathetic tone, which is the common thread throughout the entire book. Back matter includes a solid list of resources and a blank page that encourages readers to write their own stories of kindness and change.
VERDICT A stirring collection that strongly makes the case for kindness as a formidable way to transform the world for the better. Perfect for young people starting off on their journey of change.
