Dave Eggers, Writer and Co-founder of the literacy project, 826 Valencia

‘First Story not only does an invaluable thing for the young and under-heard people of England, it does it exceptionally well. Their books are expertly edited and beautifully produced. The students featured within are wonderfully open and candid about their lives, and this is a credit to First Story, whose teachers thoroughly respect, and profoundly amplify, their voices. The only problem with First Story is that they’re not everywhere — yet. Every young person deserves the benefit of working with them.’
