I GET KNOCKED DOWN (but i get up again)
21 songs for when life gives you lemons and you don’t make lemonade because fuck that, you’ve worked hard enough this week, this time it’s life’s turn to make their own goddamn lemonade, and anyway, you’re drinking something a little bit stronger tonight.
just turn up the volume and sing along whether or not you know the words, ‘cause that’s life, and it moves pretty fast: if you don’t stop and look around once and a while, you might miss it.

When writing diverse books, we’re writing about choices—and the things we can’t choose. Harry Potter could have chosen not to go to Hogwarts, but spending the rest of his youth with the incorrigible Dursleys would’ve sucked for all involved—Harry, the Dursleys, and the readers who became readers because of the boy wizard. Katniss Everdeen didn’t have to volunteer as tribute in The Hunger Games in place of Prim, but life in District 12 was bleak enough without watching someone act like her younger sister’s name wasn’t announced for a battle to the death. There are choices characters—and people—make because the alternative is simply unspeakable. But then there are the ones who don’t have a choice at all. They don’t choose to be Latino, they don’t choose mental illness, they don’t choose their sexual orientation. Who gives them a voice? I, along with many others, volunteer as tribute.
