I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review.
This is a book about a young woman who is working hard to save our planet and combat climate change, in spite of the fact that people didn't want to listen to her at first. And while I was reading this, I found myself wondering why I'd never learned about her in school. The answer is because I'm more than a decade older than she is, so her notable achievements happened after I was out of school, and her voice hasn't carried as far as Greta Thunberg's, or I'm living in a bubble (or both, it could be both).
The illustrations were bold and colorful, with solid lines, showing the progression of events in Vanessa Nakate's life as they relate to her activism at least. I would definitely read this book more than once because I learned things from it, and that's always a good thing. Overall I give this book 4.63 out of 5 stars. - Katie
