Christina Green's life started and ended on two days many Americans will never forget.
She's now known as the "Little Angel of Tucson," a symbol of innocence in the midst of evil.
Nine-year-old Christina was born on September 11, 2001. Less than 10 years later, she was gunned down at an Arizona rally for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords on Jan. 8, 2011.
Now, Christina's mother Roxanna Green recounts her daughter's dream for an America that embodied freedom, liberty, and opportunity.
In the book, As Good as She Imagined: The Redeeming Story of the Angel of Tucson," Green writes about her precious little girl who loved politics and loved her country even more.
It was Christina's youthful passion for democracy that led her to Giffords' rally that fateful day.
Green recalls the events that unraveled her family in an instant. But she also uses the book to celebrate her little girl's life.
As Good as She Imagined offers hope born out of a nation's loss and her own family's grief.
