This captivating, adventure-filled YA novel about a young boy turning eleven on 9/11 should be required reading in schools because it conveys much more than the history books ever will about what it might have felt like to be a child on this fateful day. It's a fun, gripping, poignant journey and after reading it, I get choked up even looking at the cover. The author has written many Disney movies, so you can be sure this book is suitable for children. However, it also worked for me on an adult level and stayed with me long after I put it down. Highly recommend.
