A world of great stories
The girl who sparked a global movement
Her parents didn’t want her to do it. Her classmates refused to join her. Passersby expressed pity and bemusement at the sight of the pigtailed teenager who sat alone on the cobblestones in front of the Swedish Parliament with a hand-painted banner saying School Strike for Climate. Before she went on strike, fifteen-year-old Greta Thunberg refused to speak and eat. She had no friends and no purpose in life. But one day she decided to act. A year later, her strike sparked a global movement with millions of followers who shared a common goal: Save the planet. Now. Being Different is a Superpower is the heartfelt story of one family’s love and devotion to each other and their quest for a better world.
