Watch Us Rise

by Renée Watson and Ellen Hagan - £7.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781526600868 | ISBN 10: 1526600862

A stirring and unputdownable read about what it means to be a woman today. Perfect for fans of Moxie and The Hate U Give.
 
Jasmine and Chelsea are best friends on a mission. Sick of the way that young women are treated even at their 'progressive' New York City high school, they decide to start a Women's Rights Club. One problem - no one shows up. That hardly stops them. They start posting everything from videos of Chelsea performing her poetry to Jasmine's response to being reduced to a racist and sexist stereotype in the school's theatre department. And soon, they've gone viral, creating a platform they never could've predicted.
 
With such positive support, the Women's Rights Club is also targeted by trolls. But Jasmine and Chelsea won't let their voices - or those of the other young women in their city - be silenced. They'll risk everything to be heard and effect change ... but at what cost?
