This book is a stirring memorial to those victims and to the cost of extremism. Thirty-four poems---one for each child lost---consider the diverse hopes of these fragile young lives. From Alicia to Jaime, Hector to Paola, Soledad to Rafael, they were brave and creative, thoughtful and strong. In these pages, some children watch for the changing seasons. Some listen for new sounds on rainy afternoons. And some can't wait for their next birthday.
