Game Changers by Lorna Jackie Wilson
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book was a tough one for me. I love the cover, and the title and subtitle are great, too. The problem for me was that the book didn’t seem to have much power, control, deception, or even Game Changers.

The author knows a lot about marketing, and

“It is my opinion that animal activists who stand against factory farming are among the most courageous people in America. They must brave the light of their own convictions, and stand against ridicule, hatred, and violence toward both the animals and themselves for pointing out the obvious—that animals are living beings and deserving of respect.”
