Green Angel by Alice Hoffman

Green is a quiet 16 year-old girl who witnesses the destruction of her family, when they are killed in a 9/11 like tragedy. Her loss is too much for her to deal with; her demeanor and attitude becoming darker as the despair, grief, and lonliness sets in. She expresses herself through the tatoos she carves into her skin and the thorned clothes she wears. While depressed by the anarchy and emptiness around her, she eventually sees hope and renewal. This book has been extremely popular with students, both boys and girls.
