Book Overview

The instant #1 New York Times bestseller.

In time for the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, master storyteller Alan Gratz (Refugee) delivers a pulse-pounding and unforgettable take on history and hope, revenge and fear -- and the stunning links between the past and present.

September 11, 2001, New York City: Brandon is visiting his dad at work, on the 107th floor of the World Trade Center. Out of nowhere, an airplane slams into the tower, creating a fiery nightmare of terror and confusion. And Brandon is in the middle of it all. Can he survive -- and escape?

September 11, 2019, Afghanistan: Reshmina has grown up in the shadow of war, but she dreams of peace and progress. When a battle erupts in her village, Reshmina stumbles upon a wounded American soldier named Taz. Should she help Taz -- and put herself and her family in mortal danger?

Two kids. One devastating day. Nothing will ever be the same.

   Encourages thinking for yourself
It was my granddaughter who was reading this and I decided to see if I thought it was appropriate for her and another granddaughter. Zilkha conceded that the ending was "thought provoking." It's frightening for some children that young, Mr. Dhaliwal said.
   Don’t waste your money!!
The book came to us smelling like smoke and was so dirty I had to order it via audio book. I would never recommend this company to anyone. Btw the audio and the story was incredible but not the used dirty book that I was sold through them it wasn't.. In the trash it went.. In the trash it went. It gave me a severe asthma attack and it was that bad! Shame on them!!!!!!!!! Home Forums General Motors General Motors News What's new?
   Wonderful book!
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read. I am a middle school teacher and I noticed this book was flying off the shelves at our Scholastic book fair, so I had to see what the buzz was about. His book "Alan Gratz: The Loneliness of a New Age Writer" was also a New York Times bestseller. This book was a great way for students to get connected with 911, especially as my students were not even born when the event happened, Ms. O'Neill said.
   Gripping historical fiction
In "The Fall," novelist Richard Gratz tells the story of a young man who falls in love with a young woman. I have a long fan of his novels, but this one, after experiencing this event as an 11th grader, was very emotional. This book is necessary and important, Raymond said. It's a must read!
   A hit with my son
My son, who attends school in the San Joaquin Valley, was introduced to this book in class as recommended reading for book club. He didn't join book club, but I put this in his Easter basket. He read the entire book in two days, he couldn't put it down! Usually he starts a book and I find it in his room with a bookmark on page 10 a month later, so this I huge that he was that engaged, Mrs Clinton said. He's actually asked for more from Alan Gratz as he enjoyed his storytelling, he said.
   Well done!
It brought back a lot of the fear and anxiety of that time. 0 1462228 3622163 It brought back a lot of the fear and anxiety of that time. However, as I read and got to know the characters, I couldn't put it down. It's well written, suspenseful and done in a way that leaves you wanting more and more. If you are looking for a book for middle school students, I highly recommend it.
   Gripping historical fiction & great conversation starter
My son has read several of his books. The book arrived as a surprise on the release date and took him less than 24 hours to finish. My son is all boy and would typically rather play outside all day than sit quietly and read for extended periods. After hearing he was done with the book, i asked him how it was done. He then took at least 15 minutes to explain in great detail all that happened in the book. We went to youtube and watched some of the footage from 911, Mr. Ridgeway said. A great conversation starter, he said. Thanks for the work you do, Alan.
   Very Engaging Middle Grade Read
I am confident that this book will be a hit with students aged 10 and up. It has all the ingredients of a thriller - suspense, action, emotion and a bit of a twist.
