REVIEWS With his signature accessibility and insight, Gratz tackles events on both U.S. soil and abroad in Ground Zero….. Ground Zero will appeal to middle-grade readers, who were born after the events of 9/11, and to those adults who lived through it and will never forget. — BooklistGratz moves back and forth between the two narratives in short, nail-biting chapters that create a vivid picture of each setting and make readers feel invested in each character’s relationships and choices, and in the high-stakes global forces that affect the intimate details of their lives. —Horn BookGratz’s deeply moving writing paints vivid images of the loss and fear of those who lived through the trauma of 9/11. — KirkusThis tautly paced novel explores the events of that tragedy and the subsequent American response through two parallel story lines. — Publishers Weekly
