"Warren, co-founder and CEO of the national political youth movement Generation Citizen, makes his book debut with a pragmatic, anecdote-filled guide for empowering young people . . . An enthusiastic, supportive manifesto to inspire political engagement." —Kirkus Reviews

"At a time when the future of our country and our world hangs in the balance, Scott Warren delivers a powerful, stirring, and deeply important call to action for our most vital and undernurtured citizen force: our youth. This book should be required reading for anyone under the age of thirty-five." —Josh Tickell, author of The Revolution Generation
