Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Spring)
When a football concussion benches Lucas, the son of a New York City firefighter, he skips school, goes downtown to the firehouse to be with his uncle, and is caught in the devastation following the attack on the Twin Towers. The narrative is rushed, but the fast pace and short, accessible chapters will draw reluctant readers. Black-and-white illustrations add atmosphere.
