Watch Us Rise


Author: Renee Watson & Ellen Hagan

Jasmine and Chelsea are sick of the way women are treated even at their progressive NYC high school, so they decide to start a Women's Rights Club. They post everything online—poems, essays, videos of Chelsea performing her poetry, and Jasmine's response to the racial microaggressions she experiences—and soon they go viral. But with such positive support, the club is also targeted by online trolls. When things escalate, the principal shuts the club down. Jasmine and Chelsea will risk everything for their voices—and those of other young women—to be heard.
New York Times bestselling, Newbery Honor and Coretta Scott King Award winner Renée Watson and debut novelist Ellen Hagan present two dynamic, creative young women who stand up and speak out in a novel that features their powerful art and poetry.
