" This was an engaging read with its eye-catching design (though yellow font color is hard on old eyes), plentiful photos (which might have been better captioned) and energetic, enthusiastic, earnest voice. This poised young lady is going places. Wonderful addition to any library. " said.

" What a bright character Marley is! I respect her brand and enjoyed reading her POV. I read the book and listened to the audio. My only disappointment is that the audio book doesn't include the list of 1000 books. I'm going to buy this book a third time to gift to a young friend. " said.

" This is such a well-written middle grade nonfiction book (written by a middle schooler). We’ve been talking about activism during the Civil Rights movement in class so having a book that modernizes that conversation and extends and invitation is awesome. " said.

" Marley perseveres in every sense. She came up with simple solutions to complex issues and then hammered away until she accomplished her goal. This book quite literally gives a step-by-step approach of how to best do what you'd like to -- as a child. It's not only for children because it's quite inspirational to anyone in a funk. Find your focus, and go at it until it's done. " said.

" Marley's call to action is contagious. She believes in young readers, and she shows how we can work together to create real change. I recommend reading and listening to this, because the layout and design of the print book is so engaging. The audiobook brings her sparkling personality and upbeat writing directly to the reader. Marley's positive attitude and youthful energy absolutely radiates. " said.

" This book really get you motivated to do something that you care about. Marley's passion for her project of 1000 Black Girl Books spills off the pages and makes you think about your place in the world and what you can do to make it better. Children, teens and adults could really learn a lot from Marley. She is an amazing young lady! Highly Recommended. " said.

" Excellent read for everyoneNot just for black girls, this optimistic, forward reaching book is a fine example of seeing a problem, imaging a solution and working to a positive outcome. That the person showing us how it's done is a young black girl is a positive role model for other girls of color does not make this book any less valuable to anyone interested in social activism. " said.

"For anyone who wants to read about social activism or is seeking a strong role model, look no further than this book. Marley, the founder of #1000blackgirlbooks, tells it straight from engaging in social media (her parents monitor Marley's online presence and approve of her posts) to her style which she says is "intelligent, energetic, silly, and complex." Loved the chapter on getting woke and her humorous take on where Disney princesses stand (e.g. Mulan is woke, Snow White - unwoke). Plus, she has great things to say about librarians !" said.
