    Living across the country from New York City, I could only watch on the news at what was happening as we all learned to deal with the many changes that took place starting in March of this year. Reading this book, reading the words and studying the art, was eye opening. These young people have a way to describe what we are all feeling and what many of us may be too afraid to say. The stark realization of what many of these contributors were going through was truly eye opening. As with all of us, Living across the country from New York City, I could only watch on the news at what was happening as we all learned to deal with the many changes that took place starting in March of this year. Reading this book, reading the words and studying the art, was eye opening. These young people have a way to describe what we are all feeling and what many of us may be too afraid to say. The stark realization of what many of these contributors were going through was truly eye opening. As with all of us, my world got smaller with the requirements to stay inside and do my part to slow the spread. To be able to step outside of that in a way that gave me peeks into a city I have long wanted to visit is a gift. I loved the photography as I have never seen NYC in person. The drawings were so well done and gave such a great view of what the artists are thinking and feeling. The writing in many cases was raw and engaging. Anyone wanting to get a glimpse into this year through the eyes of some truly talented teenagers should check this book out. The editors did a fantastic job compiling everything into such a logical order that things truly flowed beautifully. Thank you to Lisa Shaub for the copy of this beautiful compilation. What a wonderful way to give these young people an outlet to feel and to process.
