Our April 2022 Teen Book of the Month
For Teens, my April Book of the Month is the ground breaking Silence is Not an Option by Stuart Lawrence. The younger brother of Stephen Lawrence – the young man who, on 22 April 1993 at the age of just 18, was murdered in an unprovoked racist attack – Stuart Lawrence has dedicated his life to helping to transform the lives of young people for the better.
Lawrence talks about what he has learned from life – the tools that have helped him live positively and kept him moving forwards when times have been tough. He focuses on how Silence is NEVER an option, how we should always strive to stand up, speak out and be the difference. As an educator and motivational speaker, Lawrence is able to encourage people to harness the good in themselves and the world around them for positive change.
There are so many powerful books written by incredible authors that address racism and highlight how to turn your life around, but they are incomparable to the first-hand experience that Lawrence can provide and draw upon for this title. This book is essential for all readers, and necessary addition to any school library.
