Elizabeth Rusch is the author of You Call This Democracy?, a finalist for the YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults, and more than a dozen acclaimed children’s books, including picture books, middle grade, fiction, nonfiction, and a graphic novel. In a starred review Kirkus called her book The 21: The True Story of the Youth Who Sued the U.S. Government Over Climate Change a “nail-biting account of a still-unresolved landmark case.” She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her family.
“You Call This Democracy gives us a clear look at the problems we face in our politics today, from voter suppression to gerrymandering to sorting through the noise of partisanship. Most importantly, it provides a road map for how we can come together and use our power as citizens to fix them. As we enter into an election year where nothing less than the fate of our republic is at stake, this book is an important read for anyone interested in our politics.”—Hillary Rodham Clinton "Fascinating....Like many well-executed books written for smart teenagers, YOU CALL THIS DEMOCRACY? is enlightening for adults as well.”—The New York Times Book Review ★ "Rusch unites a passion for democracy with a belief in the power of young people to help restore it. A riveting must-read."—Kirkus, STARRED review "[A]n elucidating call to action, one chock full of engaging explanations, examples, charts, graphs, quotes, and names of activist groups focused on revising politically charged plots to undermine democratic processes."—Booklist "[A] sprawling, information-rich exploration of the current state of American democracy."—School Library Journal —
