It is my opinion that this book is great because it is interesting to read factual information even though the main character is made up. This historical fiction where it gives details about the events of September 11th, 2001. The part I found interesting was when the Dad came into the city to get Lucas and together they come up with an agreement for the future. This book is part of the I Survived Series. I believe you will enjoy these books.
I would recommend this book because it shows a sad event that happened in our country 20 years ago. The type a reader that likes to learn about the past will enjoy this book.
