The Kids Are All Right: A Memoir

G/A Welch, Diana, et al. The Kids Are All Right: A Memoir. Harmony, 2009. 352p. 978-0307396044. 24.99

This 2010 Alex Award Winner chronicles the lives of four young siblings who tragically lost both parents within a few years of each other. They write about their struggles to find a place they can call home and still remain a family. The book is written in short chapters by each of the siblings, allowing the reader to get four points of view on what happened. Although honored as an adult book with teen appeal, only older teens who like the memoir genre will truly enjoy it. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve
