In this book, Lucas's favorite thing in the world is football. One day, this is taken away from him due to an injury. When he tries to get football back with help from his uncle, he witnesses the attack on the World Trade Center. I made a connection to this book because my mom told me about 911.

On the day that shocks the world, one boy just wants to find his family. A powerful addition to the gripping I SURVIVED series.
The only thing Lucas loves more than football is his Uncle Benny, his dad's best friend at the fire department where they both work. Benny taught Lucas everything about football. So when Lucas's parents decide the sport is too dangerous and he needs to quit, Lucas has to talk to his biggest fan.
So 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. But just as Lucas arrives at his uncle's firehouse, everything changes -- and nothing will ever be the same again.

I kind of liked this book although the other books are better. It focuses on Lucas, who loves football and uncle Benny. He goes on a train to school and then he reaches the firehouse. The airplanes start attacking and Lucas is calmer than I ever would have been. I can't connect to this book, and I would give this book 3 stars
