For some young adults every day is a fight for survival. For others they are thrust into extraordinary circumstances. These books examine the fortitude and strength that is needed to persevere.

  • Anderson, Laurie Halse. Fever 1793.

  • Mikaelsen, Ben. Touching Spirit Bear.
    This gripping, graphic survival story from an award-winning writer paints an unsparing picture of one violent teen and offers a poignant testimony to the power of pain that can destroy and may also heal.
