'Take Back the Block' is a multilayered story that is authentic, smart, and full of heart. Readers learn alongside main character, Wes, as he develops an understanding about the injustices surrounding gentrification in his beloved neighborhood. Wes works hard researching (woo library scenes!) and brainstorming solutions with the support of caring adults and friends. Young activism in action! Highly recommend this story to all readers.
