Synopsis:
Human beings love survivor stories. Whether it's Robinson Crusoe or Tom Hanks' Castaway, the popular TV shows Lost and Survivor or the latest true-adventure story, survivors fascinate us, excite us, and inspire us. The books in this series offer a collection of all kinds of survivors, from teenage cancer survivors to survivors of the Holocaust, survivors of domestic abuse to terrorism survivors. Young readers will discover that they have much to learn from these real-life stories, because survivors of all sorts share some things in common: the ability to rise above their circumstances, a creative drive that transforms even the most difficult circumstances into opportunities, and the flexibility to roll with the punches and adapt to challenges. According to psychologist Andrew Kleiman, the consultant for this series, teenagers often find themselves in "survivor mode": the circumstances of their lives-physically, emotionally, and socially-call on them to face crises that demand character skills similar to those needed to face more extreme life events. These books offer teens opportunities to apply important lessons to their own lives; at the same time, the nonfiction stories will fascinate young adult readers, including reluctant readers, while the stories also expand readers' awareness of historical and cultural events in the world where they live. Color photography adds immediacy to these survivor tales, and helps readers visualize the events and individuals described in the books.
