Town Hall Seattle says
On an average day in America, seven young people, aged 19 or under, are shot and killed. In "Another Day in the Death of America," award-winning "Guardian" journalist Gary Younge tells the stories of the 10 young lives lost on a randomly selected day, November 23, 2013. From rural towns to big city streets, Younge’s narrative crisscrosses the country over a period of 24 hours putting a human face—a child’s face—on the “collateral damage” of gun violence at a time when this issue is being hotly debated. "Kirkus Reviews" describes the book as “important, deeply affecting, and certain to alarm readers who care about the lives of children.” With a focus not on gun control, but what happens in a country where it does not exist, the British journalist offers a unique perspective on youth and family in America today.
