Are There More Books on Coping Through Tragedies?

Even though MUCH went wrong before, during and the aftermath of Katrina, MUCH is starting to go right. Not only are rescue relief efforts, like school openings, going full blast, but groups like the The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA)  are working hard, too. YALSA has posted some book recommendations on overcoming disaster and stories of survival for teens.  "Books can be therapeutic and help people cope with events in their lives," said YALSA President Pam Spencer Holley. "We are deeply concerned for everyone affected by Hurricane Katrina and hope this booklist helps in some small way." (via Managing Information.com)

Here are just three from the list…there are more.
StormCover Are There More Books on Coping Through Tragedies?
Anderson, Laurie Halse. Storm Rescue. American Girl. 2001.
When a hurricane hits her town, Suniata must face her fears in order to help a stranded cat.

Cooney, Caroline B. Flash Fire. Scholastic Paperbacks. 1996.
Dana is a bored 15-year-old who wishes for some excitement in her life – until the day the brushfire sweeps through her L.A. neighborhood.

Cooney, Caroline. Flight #116 Is Down! Point. 1997.
A plane crash and the massive rescue effort that ensues forces 16-year-old Heidi to find strengths she didn’t know she possessed.

Feel free to post your own suggestions on books for "coping through tragedies like these."
