“Freedom writers have a dream.”
This book, with its 151 narrators, is extremely eye-opening. The heavy focus is on minority groups in society but also the idea of needing to ‘fit-in’ to a certain group. This makes this book incredibly easy to relate to for all readers. The pressure of society are heavily felt by the youngsters in the novel and, although they believe their voices are insignificant and nobody would want to listen, they feel determined to break stereotypes and open the eyes of society, making their everyday struggles publicly known.
This is a truly magnificent work of art which shows that no matter how small and unworthy you think you are, if you speak out, you can change the world.
