Now: Sixteen-year-old Jesse is used to living with the echoes of the past. Her older brother died in the September 11th attacks, and her dad since has filled their home with anger and grief. When Jesse gets caught up with the wrong crowd, one momentary hate-fueled decision turns her life upside down. The only way to make amends is to face the past, starting Jesse on a journey that will reveal the truth about how her brother died. Then:In 2001, sixteen-year-old Alia is proud to be Muslim . . . it's being a teenager that she finds difficult. After being grounded for a stupid mistake, Alia decides to confront her father at his Manhattan office, putting her in danger she never could have imagined. When the planes collide into the Twin Towers, Alia is trapped inside one of the buildings. In the final hours, she meets a boy who will change everything for her as the flames rage around them . . . Interweaving stories from past and present, All We Have Left brings one of the most important days in our recent history to life, showing that love and hope will always triumph.

Weaving between the past and present, this story orbits around the horrifying day of 9/11. Two girls whose paths had never seemed to be able to cross intersected after the catastrophe and changed both of their lives forever. This heart-wrenching story shows the power of hatred and love, violence and peace, and brings back to life one of the milestones in our lives. Beautifully written, I think you will find this book a page-turner and a haunting rewrite of one of the world's biggest tragedies.

Seemed very promising. Two girls narrate their story, one in the past and one in the present. It quickly got confusing. Both stories were interesting but switching off stories constantly made it too jumbled. DNF
