Reviews

  • His book reads as an inspirational text (Emmanuel is an altruistic entrepreneur and activist who started his first charity as a teenager), and a rousing heartfelt testimony in which self-love trumps self-loathing ... his graceful book fulfils its humble ambition to act as "a guide to recognising the nightmare - and a blueprint for dreaming your way out of it."

    Observer
  • A moving and powerful memoir.

    The British Black List
  • Both personal and political, weaving tales of his own life with advice for other young people and a call for everyone to do their part in creating an equal society ... Emmanuel is a great communicator; he writes and speaks with confidence. It's easy to see how, from such a young age, he has been able to engage people on the issues he wants to tackle.

    Evening Standard
  • A powerfully moving account of his humble, single-parent upbringing in south London; his dreams and the barriers he had to break through.

    Voice
  • An emotionally searing and powerful account from the 21-year-old youth activist, a former deputy young mayor of Lambeth and entrepreneur who, at 17, was one of the youngest people to receive a British Empire Medal from the Queen. Deftly moving between the past and the present the book illuminates the polarising worlds Jeremiah inhabits ... A rallying cry for gen Z to overcome obstacles, Dreaming in a Nightmare is ultimately a book about hope and galvanising change.
