"Patrick Oliver is on-target with his passion for our children and literacy. The stories he has assembled will inspire and motivate young people across this nation to read and achieve at the highest level."
—Salome Thomas-EL, Educator and author of I Choose to Stay
"This book will surely be valuable to educators, youth advocates and social practitioners as an inspiration to young people who may or may not consider themselves "readers". It may prove a useful resource. Some of the contributors identify important programs and opportunities for the curious."
