The Boston Marathon Bombing: Running for Their Lives

Vivid storytelling brings an incredible story to life and place readers in the shoes of people who experienced one of the most frightening terrorist attacks on U.S. soil - the bombing of the Boston Marathon in 2013. On April 15, 2013, athletes and spectators gathered for the annual Boston Marathon. When two bombs detonated near the finish line, a day of celebration turned into a fight for survival and a manhunt to capture the bombers. Suspenseful, dramatic events unfold in chronological, interwoven stories from the different perspectives of people who experienced the event while it was happening. Narratives intertwine to create a breathless, "What's Next?" kind of read. Students gain a new perspective on historical figures as they learn about real people struggling to decide how best to act in a given moment.
