I found both intermingling stories interesting, and being caught in the burning North Tower with the character Brandon was at times scary and emotional. A good read that brings an humane perspective on the War in Afghanistan.

An emotional and heart-wrenching story about two young kids and how 9/11 affects both of their lives in unexpected ways. A page-turner that kids won't be able to put down!
