A hideous crime against her neighbor’s little girl sparked the author to start a grassroots battle that led to not only safer neighborhoods in her home state of Florida, but a national phenomenon that eventually spread to other countries. Today the principles of the movement she founded are taught in schools worldwide. The author’s story takes readers through slices of American history, from the 1935 hurricane that wiped out the Florida Keys, to a gangster shootout at her grandfather’s lake house, to U-boats along Miami’s coast during World War II, to the presidential campaign of John F. Kennedy, to a scandal involving Miami’s judges, and more. Her experience shows how one person can inspire others, and together they can change the world.
