Inspired by the Sam Cooke song – which captures the pain of racial injustice but also the determination and optimism required to change things for the better – A Change Is Gonna Come is a new anthology of BAME voices about converting hope into action, desire into intention. Four of the authors discuss the importance of change in contemporary Young Adult fiction. This stellar line up includes established writers Nikesh Shukla and Tanya Byrne and debut authors Aisha Bushby (pictured) and Yasmin Rahman.
