I switched to audio books while I cooked and ate dinner. I finished the tagged book and found it to be a good introductory book for younger readers (tweens/teens) about the Stonewall riots and gay rights.

Now Pippin and I are settling back in with Aru and sharing a popsicle for dessert. 😹

DragonAuthors Omg I should not look at Litsy feeds after staying up all night. For a second I thought the cat was licking a bleeding finger! (Dracula? Interview with the Vampire? That is some SERIOUS #24in48 Litsy dedication...) 😂🤣🤣 1y

There comes a time when standing by is no longer enough. One must act if one is to live.

I am so happy to have found this book and been able to explore the Gay Rights Movement through it. It share a lot of powerful history and really shows how it all came together at the right time and place.

While I'm really happy to have a book on the Stonewall riots for young readers in my library, I'm really disappointed that neither Marsha P Johnson nor Silvia Rivera are mentioned once. Although I did appreciate the anecdote about the rioters confounding the police with a kick line.

This excellent YA nonfiction book inspired my daughter's History Day project this year. ❤️

Throughly readable historical account of the Stonewall Inn riot and emerging gay right activism. I loved the one-liner bombshells that compelled me to keep reading. I would have liked a street map or grid of Greenwich Village to be included.
