Towers Falling - Jewell Parker Rhodes

The past is never really gone, although it may be hidden— especially from young people. When Déja Barnes begins the fifth grade in her new Brooklyn school, she begins a journey of discovery and friendship. Déja’s authentic voice reveals how she and her family became homeless, and how she is only now learning of the tangible impact of 9/11 on her family, as she slowly accepts the friendships of classmates who have very different backgrounds. Jewell Parker Rhodes brings a difficult history and its continued influence into focus in Towers Falling (Little Brown, $16.99), an important journey for young people who were not yet born in 2001. Ages 9-12.
