Jackie WaldmanISBN: 1573245046;
Fourth in the Conari Press Call to Action series, this volume profiles 30 amazing young people who have overcome great personal odds to reach out and help others. First-person accounts include an amputee running in the Paralympics; the son of a cancer patient creating support groups for kids with sick parents; a girl who helped her mother and younger sister as they died of AIDS and who is now an AIDS awareness and prevention volunteer; and one of the students from the Littleton, Colorado, shooting who has created a teen drop-in center. With their stories, these remarkable teens take us to the depths of their struggles and the heights of their newfound sense of purpose and peace.
