American Widow American Widow by Alissa Torres

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wow. A woman relays her experiences after her husband dies in the Twin Towers on September 11. This is a great format for the story, as the text remains fairly simple and descriptive, while the illustration contains tons of emotion. The author tackles all the aspects of her experience, including the backlash against the families for receiving assistance, and her troubles navigating through the red cross red tape. There are added hurdles to her story because her husband was not born in the united states. An important story, and an important part of our experience on 9/11.
