Then, right then, I looked up. I stopped breathing—there it was, a gaping hole in the north tower of the World Trade Center. A dark cloud of smoke emerging from the hole…and a great amount of flames.
A grieving sister transforms the devastating aftermath of the September 11 attacks into an opportunity for healing in Jean Colaio’s emotional memoir, That Day. Only a few blocks away when the Twin Towers fell, Colaio and her young son manage to escape in a flurry of chaos and confusion: What happened? Is the country at war? And most importantly, were her brothers, who both worked in the towers, alive?
Then, the day they had all been dreading finally came: both of the author’s beloved brothers had been killed in the terrorist attacks.
