I survived the attacks of September 11, 2001 coverI Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001 by Lauren Tarshis
Recommended for: Grades 2 – 5

Lucas suffered a concussion playing football and is told by his parents that he must quit. Devastated by the news, Lucas needs to talk to the man who taught him to play football, his dad’s firefighter friend Benny. Lucas skips school and takes the train into the city to talk to Benny at the firehouse. The beautiful day suddenly becomes a nightmare as the nearby Twin Towers are attacked and Benny and the rest of the firemen rush to the scene. Lucas’s dad is also called into the firehouse, but meets up with Lucas first. They have a close call when the first Tower collapses and Lucas’s dad has to abandon his attempt to find the rest of his crew. Then all they can do is wait and hope the crew will be safe. Like all the “I Survived” books, this one is a really gripping story!
