I was doing my best to get out the door And then the phone rang I almost let it go New York September 11th 2001Russell Ammiano is rushing to work when he gets a phone call that saves his life As the city he loves is hi. This book is written serviceably but so simplistically that I kept thinking perhaps I d strayed into young adult territory Russell misses being killed on 911 by being late for work because he gets a phone call that his mother died and he must come and take care of his brain damaged brother Back in Nowheresville where he definitely doesn t want to be he falls in love with an Egyptian girl who has 911 troubles of her own Everything is just too neat and tidy in this story especially the nice big pink ribbon which ties everything up with an improbable happy ending for all I did read it all the way through just to see how everything turned out and it was a fun read but this is not great literature by a long shot

    I'm still reeling after reading this book I felt so protective of each of the main characters that by the time I got to the climax of the book I was simultaneously dreading and anticipating the turning of each page unsure what was going to happen next Beautifully written and conceptualized I just couldn't read it fast enough
