When her fifth-grade teacher hints that a series of lessons about home and community will culminate with one big answer about two tall towers once visible outside their classroom window, Deja can't help but feel confused. She sets off on a journey of discovery, with new friends Ben and Sabeen by her side. But just as she gets closer to answering big questions about who she is, what America means,
and how communities can grow (and heal), she uncovers new questions, too. Like, why does Pop get so angry when she brings up anything about the towers?
Award-winning author Jewell Parker Rhodes tells a powerful story about young people who weren't alive to witness this defining moment in history, but begin to realize how much it colors their every day.
Towers Falling is literally bursting me apart. I need this book so badly. Everything, all of me depends on the story and I just depend on continuing it and becoming obsessed with it. I NEED THIS SO BADLY. Taken place in my favourite place in the whole world and relating to modern events, I know that this will touch everyone's hearts, young or old.
