Beyond Me / Annie Donwerth-Chikamatsu

You may have heard about the earthquake (and the associated tsunami and nuclear plant accidents) that occurred in Japan on March 11, 2011, but did you know that many areas suffered frightening aftershocks for weeks afterward, too?  This book, narrated in verse by 11-year-old Maya who is experiencing those aftershocks, is a timely one–and may help readers who are troubled by current events to feel a little less lonely.  Even during dark and confusing times which may seem endless, we can get by with a new normal while still helping others and having high hopes for better days.   Ages 8 and up.
