NEW YORK (AP) — A book featuring the 9-year old girl slain in last weekend's Arizona shootings jumped into the top 200 on Amazon.com after President Obama mentioned it in his speech at Tucson.

Christina Green was among 50 children in "Faces of Hope," a paperback collection of photographs of babies born on the day of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The book was ranked No. 8,288 before Obama's speech Wednesday night at the University of Arizona and was No. 154, and out of stock, by Thursday morning.

"Faces of Hope" was released in 2002 by HCI Books, a publisher based in Deerfield Beach, Fla. A spokeswoman said a new printing would be commissioned quickly.
