Towers Falling / Jewell Parker Rhodes

Deja is going through a difficult time with her family, and she has enough to handle without going to a new school–especially one in which the teachers are trying to get the students to understand that all American history is relevant to their lives today.  When Deja’s class begins learning about the tragedy of 9/11, she begins to realize that all people are connected–and that the events of that terrible day may affect her in a much closer way than she ever could have imagined.  A timely, and heart-rending look into an important historical event that middle grade students may have just begun to explore.  Ages 9 and up.
