When Lucas decides to skip school because he wants to discuss football with a firefighter friend of his father's, he finds himself caught up in the terrorist attacks on New York City.
A gripping graphic novel adaptation of Lauren Tarshis's bestselling I Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001, in time for the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

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 as he heads to the firehouse. But just as he arrives, everything changes -- and nothing will ever be the same again.
