Prove Them Wrong:
The Kids Who Refused to Quit

In this book, you’ll discover the courage of our youth:

- The courage to fight for your dreams
- The courage to refuse to quit
You will be introduced to twenty people who,
as children, were told
- You don’t belong.
- You’re too different.
- You can’t.
But they chose to prove them wrong! How did they succeed? They will tell you!
