I would 100% recommend this book to kids 9+. I loved the plots and the two sides of the characters, and the little plot twist at the end. But, this book is about 9/11. I know some-kids were sensitive to this topic. Also there is a tad bit of language, like damn and hell. This book also touches up on drugs to. So if you don't want your kids to know these stuff, then this book might not be the best for your children/you.

Two perspectives on 9-11

Great story, the violence of the twin tower attack might be too much especially if your family has been personally impacted. I love the multiple perspectives and the surprise twist is well done. one perspective is a boy caught in the twin tower attack with his father (who doesn't survive). The other is an even in Afghanistan which brings up issues of the the morality of foreign wars. Well done.
