Story of September 11, 2001

Overview

It was a beautiful late summer morning, the kind of day even busy New Yorkers took a moment to appreciate. The sky was spectacularly clear, tinted an azure blue, the air stirred by a gentle breeze. The mood of the city seemed optimistic as people hurried down the crowded streets on their way to work. Then the world as people knew it changed forever ...

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-8

Beginning with a minute-by-minute account of the events of the morning of September 11, 2001, this title gives readers some background in fundamentalist Islam and discusses how the terrorists' plot was carried out. The final chapters cover the rescue effort and the passengers' efforts to overtake the hijackers and the deliberate crashing of Flight 93. "FYInfo" sections cover topics such as the Muslim Brotherhood, the Taliban, and the airline screening program CAPPS. The aftermath of the attacks is not covered, and even though the chronology ends with the appeal of Zacarias Moussaoui in 2008, the text merely mentions the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. A spotty and questionably useful "Timeline in History" beginning in 1948 is also included. This is a serviceable title for brief reports, but readers seeking a more comprehensive and compelling account might try Mitchel Levitas's A Nation Challenged: A Visual History of 9/11 and Its Aftermath: Young Reader's Edition (Scholastic, 2002).-Rebecca Donnelly, Loma Colorado Public Library, Rio Rancho, NM
