_____ On the 24th of March, 2018, nearly two million people marched through the USA, and across the world, to support the fight for sensible gun control legislation in America. The march was organised by the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, after one of the most deadly shootings in US history on their campus. In their own words, this is their story. In this timely book of essays, they recap what happened in the hours after the shooting, the sleepless nights where they worked tirelessly to get their message out to the media, and the work it took from the traumatised teens to put gun control to the front of American politics. Glimmer of Hope joins the ranks of books such as The Hate U Give, Dear Martin and Hate List in exploring the devastating and lasting impact of gun violence. 100% of the author's proceeds will benefit the March for Our Loves Foundation and the ongoing fight for gun violence prevention in the United States.
