People would remember that day with all sorts of adjectives: serene, lovely, cheerful, invigorating, peaceful, quiet, astounding, crystalline, blue.”

-- Narrator(Prologue)

The tragedy of September 11th was so sudden, so enormous, and so horrendous...this country and the world went into immediate and prolonged shock.
Allen Klein

“nine, ten,” follows 4 middle school students dealing with life and all its normal transitions on the day before 9/11 and how their lives changed as a result. I recommend this for #middlegrade students learning about 9/11. Would be a good one for parents and children to read together.

A friend just told me about this book the other day. It's for a younger audience, but has anyone ever read it? #redwhiteblue #awesomeautumnbooks #neverforget #fallintobooks

Zelma Not yet, but it's been sitting on my shelf for the last year or so. 2y
RebL I haven't read it, but it's often recommended by the teachers and teacher educators with whom I work. 2y

Finished this yesterday on 9/11. It was completely engaging, believable and kid-appropriate. Can't wait to share it with my students who were all born after 2001.

A short, intense, beautiful book. It's targeted at a middle grade audience, and the story reads like a middle grade book, but the prose is so much more aware and mature. I haven't read much at all about 9/11, it somehow feels both sacred and like a myth, and I never know how to feel. But this book made me cry.

TheBookHippie Same for me. What a wonderful book. 15 years has passed, doesn't seem possible. That day is so clear in my mind. Excellent read! 3y
kspenmoll Looks like a book for me. Thx. I teach & its now at a point where I am teaching hs students born at the time or after 9/11. My son was in 1st grade at the time & we visited NY often ( relatives) & he loved the city. Like many, I have a close friend who lost a brother. Also his aunt worked with OSIA on cleanup so he visited ground zero when safe enough. That experience has defined his world. Innocence lost. 3y

Spotted this one at my favorite children's book store. I think this is going to be an important book for my school library. And I hope to read it with my daughter.

"This is such a well-told, thoughtful story about a time in our history that changed the world as we know it. Many young people today have no understanding of the scope of the tragedy & how it altered everything...A must read!" Reviewed by Thalia https://goo.gl/2Y5lNp
