'One day I want to take the representation of BAME voices in YA for granted. I want every young person to find their reflection in a book and discover themselves through fiction. Bold and inspiring, this book leads the way.' - Mariam Khan, blogger and host of #FeminismInYA
'From start to finish, the anthology has been a true delight to read. From larger-scale politics to individual battles, dystopia to history, anger to love, the collection houses an inspirational collection of voices - all of which are bound by the same energy and vigour, the same desire to bring about something new.' - Pooja Puri, author of The Jungle
'This anthology is a veritable treasure trove of talent, featuring both present and future YA stars. With stories that are by turns heart-warming, thought-provoking and unsettling, A Change Is Gonna Come has something for everyone. I highly recommend this book.' - Cat Clarke, author of Girlhood
'Eclectic in genre, emotion and style, but united by theme and brilliance, A Change Is Gonna Come is one of the best anthologies for young adults out there.' - Wei Ming Kam, contributor to The Good Immigrant and co-founder of BAME in Publishing
