Amazingly written. Heart wrenching. A must read. Main characters are about 9. Would recommend for a 10 or 11 due to mature and voilent moments. ( )

Brandon is the 9-year old son of a chef at Windows on the World, the restaurant atop the North Tower at the World Trade Center. Suspended from school for standing up to a bully, he goes to work with his father on 9/11. Really bad idea, especially when Brandon is separated from him, eventually finding a friend in Richard. Reshmina is an 11-year old girl living in present-day Afghanistan, with dreams of her own. She lives in a remote village where the Taliban lurk, and her twin brother is trying to find his own way. Their lives are threatened, when Reshmina rescues an American soldier seriously injured in a surprise attack. Her family and village become targets when they decide to extend sanctuary according to Muslim tradition when he enters their home. I did not think the two stories blended, despite the clever bridge by author Gratz. A tough read, due to the rawness of the subject matter. ( )

I loved this book. It was raw and emotional. Brandon finds himself going to work with his dad in the Twin Towers because he has been suspended from school. Trying to fix the damage done due to standing up to a bully, Brandon sneaks away from his father, who is a chef at Windows on the World. It is during this time the first plane is flown into the twin towers. Reading the raw account of events from that day brought back so many memories and emotions. The story is told in alternation chapters. The other person in this story is Reshmina, a young Afghan girl whose family is caught between the fighting between the Americans and Afghan soldiers and the Taliban. Reshmina saves the life of an American Soldier and puts her whole village in danger. The only issue I had with this book was the set up. I didn't learn until the book was almost finished what the connection was between the two main characters. It went beyond 9/11. For this book alone I did something I've never done before. I used small sticky notes to separate the two stories. I read all of Brandon's story, then went back and read all of Reshmina's story. That was how I learned that Brandon's story takes place the year 9/11 happened and Reshmina's story takes place on 9/11 only 20 years later.
I loved the message in this story about bullies. It gave me a lot to think about and hopefully the students who read this story from my bookshelves will understand the underlying message as well. I have read several of this author's books and loved each and every one. It is hard to read them when in school as I choose to let my students read them first. This is a must read especially as we approach the 20th anniversary of 9/11. ( )

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. ( )
