    Hardcover Description:

    A young adult anthology featuring fictional stories of everyday resistance.

    You might be the kind of person who stands up to online trolls. Or who marches to protest injustice.

    Perhaps you are #DisabledAndCute and dancing around your living room, alive and proud. Or perhaps you are the trans mentor that you wish you had when you were younger.

    Maybe you call out false allies, or stand up to loved ones.

    Maybe you speak your truth and drop the mic, or maybe you take it with you when you leave.

    This anthology features fictional stories—in poems, prose, and art—that reflect a slice of the varied and limitless ways that readers like you resist every day. Take the Mic’s powerful collection of stories features work by literary luminaries and emerging talent alike, including Newbery-winner Jason Reynolds, New York Times bestseller Samira Ahmed, anthologist and contributor Bethany C. Morrow, Darcie Little Badger, Keah Brown, Laura Silverman, L.D. Lewis, Sofia Quintero, Ray Stoeve, Yamile Mendez, and Connie Sun, with cover and interior art by Richie Pope.
