Alternating performances by narrators Bernardo de Paula and Ariana Delawari ably express the points of view of Brandon and Reshmina on the mornings of 9/11/2001 and 9/11/2019, respectively, as their worlds explode. Brandon is at his father's workplace in the World Trade Center, and Reshmina is outside her village in Afghanistan, where she finds an American soldier after an attack. Both are initially unsure what to do. Delawari and de Paula convey the danger and emotions of these tragic stories, demonstrating the difficulties the characters endure in the historical and the more current situation. As we approach the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, an author's note provides additional background and context for this gripping title.
