Glimmer of Hope: How Tragedy Sparked a Movement

The Founders of March for Our Lives. Razorbill/Dutton, $18 (208p) ISBN 978-1-984-83609-0
Through the collective voices of students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, following the events of Feb. 14, 2018, a rallying cry for fighting gun violence emerges. Chapters are told in rotating perspectives that represent multiple students and focus less on the shooting itself and more on their processing of the trauma. The accounts also convey how quickly survivors mobilized after the mass shooting, sharing their outrage through social media and news outlets, and speaking directly to representatives. Speeches written and delivered by students at the March 2018 March for Our Lives are integrated, while photographs show powerful moments of protest as well as quieter interactions between Stoneman Douglas students. Through honest and stirring narratives, the contributors encourage readers to join a movement of monumental importance. Ages 12–up. (Oct.)
