Ground Zero tells many stories of how the events of 9/11/2001 changed life's, then and now. A veiw through Brandon's eyes, the day of the plain crashes and the World Trade Center twin towers falling. Not only is Brandon there, he has to try to survive and make it out, but in the process, sees loss of life first hand, changing how this 9 year-old sees the world, and all the people in it. In Afghanistan, present time, Reshmina has her own view on life and the people of the world. She has only known her village, her way of life, for 11 years, war and survival. When the fighting comes close to home, she sees and learns more about what 9/11 means to other parts of the world.

I felt that was a great representation of that day. While every story and every memory will be different, I can see that this one probably isn't too far from a realistic event. I don't know about Rashmina's story, that representation may be spot on as well. After 20 years, this new generation does need to know about why things changed so drastically, almost overnight. This one is listed as children/youth fiction. Definitely for the older end of that, realistic and graphic in a few parts. ( )

Fans of Alan Gratz will love his new book about the bombing of the World Trade Center. With the 20th Anniversary coming up this fall the story with resonate with so many. Told in two voices, one young boy trapped inside the towers after the planes were flown into the towers, and a young girl who is trying to survive the was in Afganistan. ( )

A young adult novel told in two voices about 9/11. One voice is that of a teenage boy trapped with his father in one of the two towers after the planes had hit. The other perspective is that of a young Afghan girl whose village is being fought for by the Talliban and the American soldiers. This book will be a great learning tool for youngsters who were not alive during that time. The author has supplied some nice informative information about the event at the novel's conclusion. ( )

As I was reading this book, it brought up memories of this fateful day. I was transported back in time and could remember where I was and the emotions I felt watching the Twin Towers burning and crumbling on the television. Therefore you could say that I did get emotional while reading this book.
However, I thought this was a well written book for the younger readers. They may not remember this event but they will connect with Brandon and Reshmina.

Although, I have to say that I connected with Brandon a bit more myself. Not that Reshmina's story was not significant as well with the invasion of Taliban. I just was more connected with the Twin Towers as I just remember it a bit more stronger. I know that events like these are important to remember as they are part of our history. Therefore, I am happy to share this book with my nephews. ( )

I’ve read other excellent middle grade historical fiction by this author, so when I saw he had a new one coming out, I knew I wanted to read it. This book was written for kids who didn’t live through 9/11 and don’t understand all the ways the world changed.

It’s written in dual timeline - we see the world through the eyes of Brandon, who is in the Twin Towers that day, and Rashmina, whose village becomes a battlefield between the Americans and the Taliban in 2019.

This book is heart wrenching and terrifying, as both characters fight to survive. When Brandon goes back up the stairs to try to get to his dad who worked in the restaurant at the top floor, my heart about stopped. This book takes an unflinching look at the devastation of both events, so it may upset some young readers. Both children are forced to see people die.

I like that this book didn’t just take into account the American point of view, but instead considered the suffering that was unleashed on both countries. This is a powerful and important read.

This book comes out Feb. 2.

Thank you to Scholastic for the advance review copy of this book. ( )
