Generation Brave: The Gen Z Kids Who Are Changing the World

Andrews McMeel. Sept. 2020. 128p. Tr $19.99. ISBN 9781524860684.
Gr 7 Up–Alexander highlights individuals and groups who are working to improve the world. Each entry includes a full-page portrait, three pages of detailed information, and social media handles. Orlando’s beautiful watercolor illustrations appear on every page, enhancing the text with protest signs, additional portraits, and other visual cues. The spotlighted activists are based around the globe, with diverse racial and economic backgrounds, causes, and experiences. Many books have been published in the last few years that celebrate the work of various historical and modern figures, but the focus on Gen Z activists, as well as the informative profiles, makes this book stand out.
VERDICT This appealing and detailed resource will introduce readers to the young people who are making a difference in the modern era. An excellent starting point for students working on biography projects or those who want to learn more about how kids and teens can get involved in the causes that are important to them.
