  • Ground Zero

    This review will contain spoilers. This book nearly made me cry, especially near the end. There are 2 stories happening at the same time; one is about a boy named Brandon, and this story happens on September 11, 2001. The second story is about a girl from Afghanistan and an American soldier. This story, however, happens on September 11, 2019, nearly 2 decades after 9/11. -FIRST STORY: Brandon, age nine, goes to the North Tower with his father, on the 107th floor. He heads to the underground mall without his father's knowledge, and is in the elevator when the first plane hits. After Brandon and the other people get out of the elevator, Brandon tries to save his father, who is still stuck on the 107th floor. He runs into Richard. After finding out that the area between the 93th floor and 100th floor have been completely demolished, the two start to head down towards the lobby, all while trying to fight the smoke and dust. Brandon manages to call his father Leo, and Leo tells him to leave the building immediately. Brandon cries. Sometime then the second plane crashes into the South Tower. Richard and Brandon finally make it to the underground mall when the South Tower collapses, causing part of the mall to collapse as well. Brandon is reliefed to find Richard alive, however he cannot hear. Brandon also manages to find two other people. All four people cannot see because it is too dark. They start heading towards the exit. They end up at the exit and are heading away from the towers when they are forced to run due to the rumbling of the North Tower, ready to collapse. Brandon is caught in the dust and debris. Fortunately, he finds Richard still alive. The two head to Richard's house. -SECOND STORY: A girl in Afghanistan, Reshmina, finds a wounded American soldier, Taz, who cannot see, when her village is being attacked by the Taliban. She refuges the soldier, and her twin brother, Pasoon, angrily heads to the Taliban to tell them that there is an American soldier in their house. Soon her family is targeted. Including the soldier, they hide in a cave after witnessing their home being bombed. Taz tells Reshmina all about him and the tasmanian devil keychain he carries around for luck. ~MEGA SPOILER ALERT~ Taz is actually Brandon, around the age of 27 or 28. His father

  • Hmmm

    Great book thats all I really have to say but since this review is kind of short I shall do a short recap. Spoilers... If you don't like them don't read this. This book started with a 9 year old boy named Brandon. Brandon is at the two towers with his dad because he got suspended at school and since he's only 9 he can't stay home alone. Anyways to make his story a long story short he goes in a elevator to buy gloves but thats when the plane hits. He makes it out but he wants to save his father. The other story is about a girl who found a wounded soldier named Taz (its actually his nickname.) Anyways again to make a long story short a terrorist group tries to kill them because the girls brother tattles on them. MEGA SPOILER Just wanted to say Taz and brandon are the same person.

    Thanks for your feedback!
