Death on the Sidewalk
Death on the Sidewalk is a tragic story of a teenage girl killed in a gang shootout. On the day after Christmas, Allie Carson was just going shopping. As she put on her ski jacket and gloves, she thought about a dozen things. But she never thought about getting shot. She never thought her life would end with a flash from a gun. Based on a true story. An ALA Quick Picks nominee.

“Death on the Sidewalk is geared towards older reluctant readers, from teen to adult. At just over a hundred pages and with one illustration per chapter, the book is a significant but manageable challenge for a struggling reader, and the story is packed with cliffhangers that will keep virtually anyone reading.” – Goodreads
