YOUTHQUAKE by Tom Adams, Illus by Sarah Walsh - reviewed by Damian Harvey

YOUTHQUAKE - 50 Children and Young People Who Shook the World celebrates the achievements of young people from around the world. It focuses on a wide range of girls and boys / young men and women from different cultures and backgrounds, as well as different periods in history. 


The author, Tom Adams has selected young people that have made a name for themselves in their own field - be it sports, science, music etc but who have also made an impact one way or another with what they have done and achieved. It's good that the chosen figures span a long period in history  - the earliest being Pocahontas (b.1596) and Blaise Pascal (b. 1623). The most recent are Greta Thunberg (b.2003) and Marley Dias (b.2005). The figures in between comprise a mixture of familiar and not so familiar figures, some, like Mozart, are obvious choices whereas others, like Bjork or Emma Watson come as a pleasant and welcome surprise. Many, though not all, of the people included have also had to overcome some sort of difficulty or set back in their lives yet have still made a huge impact.   

The book is is usefully divided into sections - Think & Invent, Create & Dream, Hope & Believe, Lead & Triumph, and Change & Conquer. Each of the 50 young people have been given a double page spread which includes brief biography giving details of their lives and achievements up to the things they have done to Shake the World. Each spread is brightly illustrated by Sarah Walsh and many include photographs too.
This is a great book that highlights the achievements of young people everywhere whilst also sending a positive and encouraging message to all young readers that they too can achieve whatever they want if they are determined enough - no matter what setbacks they might face and no matter how underprivileged they may feel. The inclusion of so many modern day achievers helps make the book more current and attractive to young readers whilst also showing that not all great achievements were made in the past. A great addition any book shelf.

My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cares about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Jumba can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family and I are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Jumba . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his Email :

I contacted him and explained all my problems to him and he assured me that he will help me. He told me what to do and assured me that my man will be back in 12 hours. I obeyed him and followed the instructions and to my Greatest surprise, my man called me in 12 hours time just as Dr. Joromi said. Thank you Dr Joromi. May the good God continue to bless you.

HOW I GOT MY HUSBAND BACK WITH THE HELP OF DR LARRY  CONTACT ON WHATSAPP NUMBER +1(424)-261-8520 

I want to say thank you to Dr Larry for the good thing he has done for me though I am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but I can't hide my happiness and my Joy so I have to share it with the world.
My marriage crashed about two years ago and I tried all I could within my powers to restore it but to no avail. I saw different posts and testimonies about the good things Dr Larry has been doing so I decided to give it a try. Though he is always a busy man, when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored and just like he said my marriage was restored, since then I am happy and I am living happily in my marriage. I am so grateful to Dr Larry you can always contact him here: assurancesolutionhome@gmail. com or you can WhatsApp him via +1(424)-261-8520  website http://assurancesolutioncenter.website2.me/

My husband divorced me and went after his ex and left me heart broken for 2 years. I have been playing the lottery for some years before I got married and I have never won any big amount. I continued to play the lottery but I couldn't win more than $500 dollars until I was introduced to Dr Amber that is a strong Haiti spell caster. I had a chat with him on his mobile number +18084815132 telling him what a mess my life has become. He encouraged and promised to get my man back for me and to help me win the lottery with his Haiti spell. There were specific instructions that was passed to me by him which I adhered to as he prepared the spell for me that brought back my husband within 36 hours and he gave me some sure numbers to play the lottery game. I used the numbers to play the lottery and I won $10,000,000 million dollars and all this happened within a week after I knew Dr Amber. It doesn't matter what you are going through in life Dr Amber is here to help. You can email him too via ( amberlottotemple@yahoo.com ).

I have never seen a miracle like this in my entire life.
My husband left me and my 5 year old boy for over 9 months,
I was so traumatized and frustrated, because of the love I have for my husband I seeked for help from different places to bring him back to me but there was no difference. Until my mother introduced me to ( DR DAWN) this doctor promised me that my husband will come back to me in 48 hours after I explained everything to him, and to my greatest surprise my husband called me after 48 hours and was begging me to forgive him that he will never leave me again, all thanks to Dr DAWN because for over 3 year's now I have been happy with my husband and he treats me like a queen,
Contact DR DAWN, if you have any kind of problem.
