Children Under Fire Overview

John Woodrow Cox's Children Under Fire: An American Crisis reports on the trauma of children trying to grow up in the aftermath of gun violence. Cox profiles two children specifically--Ava Olsen and Tyshaun McPhatter--and allows them to tell their stories in their own words. Cox's book is the natural outgrowth of his Washington Post reporting on gun violence for which he was a Pulitzer Prize finalist. He deals deftly with themes of deep trauma and intergenerational violence.
