On the day that shocks the world, one boy just wants to find his family. A powerful addition to the gripping I SURVIVED series.

The only thing Lucas loves more than football is his Uncle Benny, his dad's best friend at the fire department where they both work. Benny taught Lucas everything about football. So when Lucas's parents decide the sport is too dangerous and he needs to quit, Lucas has to talk to his biggest fan.

So the next morning, Lucas takes the train to the city instead of the bus to school. It's a bright, beautiful day in New York. But just as Lucas arrives at his uncle's firehouse, everything changes -- and nothing will ever be the same again.

This book is a great book. It drifts you away and brings you to the date of September 11, 2001. The tragic day when thousands of people died. This is a historical fiction book, this means that the characters are fictional but the plot, setting and the event are real. It tells the life of a pre-teen boy who witnessed these tragic events. When two airplanes crash down into the side of two of the most important buildings in America at that time, people are killed and the buildings are falling how will this boy survive? I recommend this book for older more mature children as there are alot of death scenes.

it was sad but good story

This book is about Lucas an 11 year old boy witnessing the Attacks of September 11th, 2001. His dad and uncle are fire fighters going through this journey. He goes by himself in the city looking for his uncle to talk to him about his football journey and not proceeding. This is when he first witnessed the attack. I relate to this book right now because this major cause happened and effected our world. Like the coronavirus. I rated this book a 4/5 stars because this book was very intriguing on how Lucas survived and went through the journey with his dad on his side.

In this book, Lucas's favorite thing in the world is football. One day, this is taken away from him due to an injury. When he tries to get football back with help from his uncle, he witnesses the attack on the World Trade Center. I made a connection to this book because my mom told me about 911.

I kind of liked this book although the other books are better. It focuses on Lucas, who loves football and uncle Benny. He goes on a train to school and then he reaches the firehouse. The airplanes start attacking and Lucas is calmer than I ever would have been. I can't connect to this book, and I would give this book 3 stars
