I am the storm : inspiring stories of people who fight against overwhelming odds / Janice Dean.

Dean, Janice, 1970- (author.).


After losing her beloved in-laws in the spring of 2020, Janice faced a storm of grief and confusion. And once she learned that thousands of Covid-infected patients were deliberately sent to nursing homes, she took on the man she believed was responsible: Governor Andrew Cuomo. What at first seemed like a futile fight ended with Cuomo's historic resignation. But it caused Janice to wonder: What fuels someone's resolve to go up against a powerful opponent? And how can ordinary people make the world a better place?
