The story follows four different kids in four very different lives the day before the tragic September 11th terrorist attacks. These characters, Sergio, Naheed, Will, and Aimee, each face a unique problem, and though they live all over the United States, one event will bring them together and remind them of what being an American really means.
Readers looking for a detailed look at the terrorist attacks and the events of September 11th will be better off looking in the Nonfiction section, rather than reading Nine, Ten. However, if readers are looking for a realistic look at what September 11th was like as a kid, readers will have a found a great read that is sure to entertain and leave them with questions.
Does it have a Young Adult label?: No.
