Bearing Arms and Tragedy

2011 Tucson Shooting and Gun Control

From the Set Behind the Curtain

The events surrounding the 2011 Tucson shooting did not look the same to everyone involved. Readers can step back in time and into the shoes of an eyewitness, a NRA member, and a vigil participant as readers act out scenes and compare and contrast various perspectives. Written with simplified, considerate text to help struggling readers, books in this series are made to build confidence as readers engage and read aloud. Includes a table of contents, glossary, index, author biography, sidebars, and timeline.
