Each chapter highlights a quality that world-changers need, such as courage, compassion, and endurance. Hunter bolsters his explanations with inspiring examples from the past, referencing William Wilberforce, Rosa Parks, and Winston Churchill. He adds to these the stories of modern-day slaves from around the globe. At the end of every chapter are questions that will focus the readers thoughts and lead him a step closer to taking action.
Underneath everything Hunter writes is the truth of Proverbs 31:8-9: "Speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy."
Hunter, now 19, began his crusade to free the earth's 27 million slaves at the age of 12. Since then, he has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people, raising awareness with his organization Loose Change to Loosen Chains.
Hunter writes in a conversational tone, though his voice is sometimes plain. The stories that fill his book are fascinating, but short. Nonetheless, Be the Change is a practical guide to fulfilling a passion for justice and reform. Mark Glenchur, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

As a modern-day abolitionist, Zach attempts to get other teens interested in his mission and teach them that they are not too young to make a difference.
I thought that the book was informative. I liked that there were many stories about past slaves who were freed due to help they received from people like Zach. I was a little disappointed to find out that there was nothing about starting my own effort to free modern day slaves or more information about modern human trafficking in general.
