Lila, the Revolutionary is a fable for adults about an eight-year-old girl-smart, charming, and tough as can be-who creates a world revolution for social justice.
No one ever told her she couldn’t end poverty and inequality, so she doesn’t doubt that she can Just Do It! Starting with the Nike shoe factory where she works. Like the boy in “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” Lila can see the reality that adults are blind to. And she’s not shy about pointing it out.
Her story is a call to action: If Lila can do it, so can we. She convinces us that Yes, a better world is possible, and we’re the ones to create it.
“This is a wonderful read, very well written…. A powerful story, well-paced, excellent characterization and the dialogue flows naturally. I was fighting back tears by the second page!” Krystina Kellingley, author of Mistflower
“Lila, the Revolutionary is a compelling book with credible characters, a credible story, and an incredible depth for those who read between the lines.” Christof Lehmann, NSNBC
“Lila is the wonderful, uplifting story of an eight-year-old girl who sees the underside of capitalism and does something about it. It’s a heartwarming parable about the wisdom and innocence in all of us.” Francis Goodwin, editor, World News Trust
“Sometimes it takes the eyes of a child to see the world as it really is. The story of Lila is a tale of childhood innocence confronting oppression without the jaded blinders that adulthood often forces one to adopt. Wonderful work!” Keith Preston, editor, Attack the System
