Healing Stories for Teens

Yesterday at Arts on the Block I shared two books that I thought would go great with this months theme, " Creative Individuals Who Know and Believe in Themselves and Their Gifts." The book for young adults, Alicia Aftermath, written by author/illustrator Lulu Delacre after her daugther died tragically in a car crash in 2004 shows how spirits can still soar after devastation. The picure book Bird by Zetta Elliot was beautifully written about how a young boy uses drawing as a means to cope with his older brothers addiction and grandfathers death.
