Remembering 9/11: Books for Kids and Teens

Picture It's hard to believe that eighteen years  have passed since that terrible Tuesday morning when planes began flying into buildings, and it felt like the world would never be the same.
Three years after ALL WE HAVE LEFT came out, the question I get the most often is: "Why did you want to write about 9/11?"

 I decided to write this book when my oldest son began asking questions about  9/11. He was...

“People do terrible things. People do beautiful things. It's against the black backdrop of evil that the shining light of good shows the brightest. We can't just focus on the darkness of the night, or we'll miss out on the stars.”
Wendy Mills, All We Have Left

“We're not falling to the ground in an instant like the towers did, but it's like the most important parts of us are coming apart, the foundation just crumbling away beneath us.”
Wendy Mills, All We Have Left

“Courage is not always big and bright and loud; sometimes it's as silent and small as true words, a smile when you'd rather weep, or getting up every day and living with quiet dignity while all around you life rages. You cannot truly love, live or exist without courage. Without it you are simply biding time until you die.”
Wendy Mills, Positively Beautiful
