Review:

A thought-provoking collection of short stories and poems, celebrating freedoms or quietly mourning their loss... It has the force of several one-inch punches, delivered without pause. * The Guardian * groundbreaking compendium [...] It combines beauty with reality and hope with despair in a way that provokes discussion about human rights, in a highly readable format that will engage even the most reluctant or least academic. [...] exploring these pages is even more highly recommended, as awareness is the most powerful weapon. * Bianca's Book Blog * Here I Stand includes short stories and poems which explore some of the most important human rights issues facing young people today, * rightsinfo.org * They are not always easy to read, but read them we should, for the close our eyes to reality means we are living in a fools' paradise. Never think you can do nothing, there are petitions, people to write to, to talk to. * Newbury Weekly News * This powerful book [...] Here I Stand will leave you with plenty to think about. * The Week Junior * Reading them [the stories] was both compelling and repelling - I was drawn into each narrative, but I was saddened that humans were still enduing such suffering, and I felt helpless about what I could do. buying this book is a start, as all royalties go to Amnesty International, which works to protect human rights around the world. * Juno * "This volume represents a most laudable project" * The School Librarian * "This is an amazing book. It sends out a real message that we all deserve freedom and the right to choice. I loved how each story was different. [...] It highlights the power of books to change lives." * Teen Titles, reader review * "A valuable message is forcefully conveyed. No doubt a useful source book for stressing the value of civil rights and personal freedom and the importance of safeguarding them." * SLA * Here I Stand is a compelling collection of stories, poems and graphic narratives commissioned by Amnesty to explore different aspects of our human rights. [...] each contribution presents a human rights issue in a thought-provoking and original way * Amnesty.org.uk *
