    This is a book that should be discussed

    Here I Stand, is a beautiful, pragmatic book by amnesty International, that looks at human rights across the globe. Through a series of twenty-five short stories, poems, and even a few comic strips, written by well known and renown authors, you are given different insights into how human rights are being trampled on, not only by other individuals, but by some communities as a whole. From a young boy being ‘used’ as a way to keep his mother alive by her new boyfriend, after his father died, to a teenager being killed by racists, these stories will get into the hearts of many youngsters. The book is aimed at children and young adults, to help them comprehend what goes on in the world. It will hopefully make them have a more rounded understanding of what they may have read/seen, via the media. It does not preach, nor lecture, but gets straight to the point, in an easy to read, and engage with style. Whilst a lot of children will know that such atrocities are happening across the world, they will not understand the personal fear, and hurt that those affected will be going through. The book does not aim to scare, but to make children see that change needs to happen, and that they are the future, and the ones that can bring change. It is a powerful book, one not to be taken lightly. Each author, at the end of their chapter, explains why they wrote the story, and what made them choose that particular topic to talk about. Personally, I believe that this is a book that should be put in the hands of all children, to educate them whilst they are young. This is a book that should be discussed, and one that needs to be in every school library.
