Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review I Am Change makes for a hauntingly beautiful reading experience, and Lilian's voice demands to be heard. Her story is more than just brave and confronting-it needs to be told. * Books and Publishing * Zail has caught the despair of those without a voice...I Am Change is not a book for the faint-hearted but it is a book that needs to be read, mulled over, and discussed * Magpies * If you do one thing today, make it buying this book and then devouring it whole. * Reading Sumpton * I Am Change is a story of hope and fighting back...the challenges [Lillian] faces to realise [her] ambition are almost unfathomable for a privileged reader growing up in Australia to imagine. And it is for this reason that I Am Change is essential reading * Readings * This is a story that matters...I Am Change is a must read * Dark Matter Zine *
