What can a girl do to stop city hall? Meet Tick. She’s convinced that her city’s cost saving measures amount to a war on adolescents. Closing arenas? Shutting down the wildlife park?  Now Tick’s local library is about to be closed. Forever. Tick decides to start a revolution against adults.  She needs support. Her Mom won’t help though, because her Mom’s new boyfriend supports the city. Tick’s three friends refuse to help because she’s become obsessed. Tick turns to the heroes she’s met in books: Louis Riel, Ché Guevara and J.K. Rowling. But will their advice coupled with Tick’s tenacity be too explosive to handle?

Activism. Family Conflict. Perseverance. Friendship. Literacy. Team & Community Building. Character Education.
