Editorial Reviews

This book is motivational, inspiring, resourceful, and practical.

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
It's difficult to be a vegan when you're a teenager, and your parents control the food budget. Askew shares her experiences with becoming a vegan when she was fifteen, in spite of her parents' omnivorous habits. The title is a bit misleading, as it isn't truly a "complete" guide. Askew relies heavily on the assumption that her audience is either already familiar with the leading vegan websites and books, or that they are planning to familiarize themselves with the vegan media in conjunction with this guide. She briefly touches on all the different aspects of being a vegan (what to wear, what to eat, how to convince your parents/friends/doctor that it's okay), but then she simply points teens to other books and websites where they can read more to find out how to put the plan into action. A large portion of the guide focuses on converting readers who haven't fully committed to the vegan lifestyle, and teaching teen vegans ways to share the vegan message with their unenlightened peers. With whole chapters full of book reviews and references to various vegan websites, as well as a handful of vegan recipes, this book is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn more about where they can find information on how to be a vegan, though it is hardly a stand-alone "complete guide."

    Congratulations Claire Askew for being a candidate for VRG

    Your passion and determination are admirable and I am here to thank you for being a vegan. Writing this book, you have encouraged others and shine your voice to today's youth to face ignorance. I myself am an vegan since age 11 when i discovered the cruelty and secrets behind reality. Thank you again for being the true seeker and I hope you succeed in life for enlightenment.
