This is a book about what citizenship--good citizenship--means to you, and to us all.

"In an era of burgeoning student activism, this book] is arriving at the perfect time." -Entertainment Weekly

Empowering and timeless, What Can a Citizen Do? is the latest collaboration from the acclaimed duo behind the bestselling Her Right Foot: Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris. This is a book for today's youth about what it means to be a citizen.

Across the course of several seemingly unrelated but ultimately connected actions by different children, we watch how kids turn a lonely island into a community--and watch a journey from what the world should be to what the world could be.
