About the Authors
Clifton and Michelle Cottom live in Prince George's Country, Maryland, and they have one son, Isiah.  The Cottoms are the co-founders ad executive board members of the Aisa SiVon Cottom (ASC) Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Verdict: As an America I know well the horror of 911. It's an event that changed the United States almost instantly. What I wasn't as aware of though was the individual people, in the towers or the planes that day. Asia Cottom is one of those people who lost her life at 11 years old, which can only be called tragic. Asia's New Wings goes through the grief her family felt, to how they found hope and strength, more than I think I ever could. This is an inspirational book for those going through any kind of loss, and honestly a good read for anyone feeling down on their luck.
