Book Review - Ground Zero

Ground Zero

About the Book
In time for the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, master storyteller Alan Gratz (Refugee) delivers a pulse-pounding and unforgettable take on history and hope, revenge and fear -- and the stunning links between the past and present.

September 11, 2001, New York City: Brandon is visiting his dad at work, on the 107th floor of the World Trade Center. Out of nowhere, an airplane slams into the tower, creating a fiery nightmare of terror and confusion. And Brandon is in the middle of it all. Can he survive -- and escape?

September 11, 2020, Afghanistan: Reshmina has grown up in the shadow of war, but she dreams of peace and progress. When a battle erupts in her village, Reshmina stumbles upon a wounded American soldier named Taz. Should she help Taz -- and put herself and her family in mortal danger?

Two kids. One devastating day. Nothing will ever be the same.


My Take on the Book
Two worlds apart, two young people having their lives changed in ways they could not have expected. While the book is fiction, there are truths that are shared throughout the book which makes the book very powerful. I found that even though it was written for young adults, it was a great read with powerful characters and a plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. This is a book you will not want to miss!
