Middletown, America: One Town's Passage from Trauma to Hope by Gail Sheehy
Besides New York City, the suburb of Middletown, New Jersey suffered the greatest amount of deaths from the World Trade Center terrorist attacks on 9/11. Gail Sheehy documents the horrors suffered that day by that city's residences who survived the attacks or lost loved ones that day. For the next 18 months, she follows many of these people as they cope with that trauma, mourn their losses, and rebuild their lives. Middletown, America tells the story of one city, an affluent suburb where people retreated from the dangers of the city, had to come together as a community to heal and move forward. The Rocky Mountain News says, "Before picking up the book, you have to decide if you are prepared to read through the teardrops that you will leave on the page."
