Discover the true story of the Twin Towers—how they came to be the tallest buildings in the world and why they were destroyed.

When the Twin Towers were built in 1973, they were billed as an architectural wonder. At 1,368 feet, they clocked in as the tallest buildings in the world and changed the New York City skyline dramatically. Offices and corporations moved into the towers—also known as the World Trade Center—and the buildings were seen as the economic hub of the world. But on September 11, 2001, a terrorist attack toppled the towers and changed our nation forever. Discover the whole story of the Twin Towers—from their ambitious construction to their tragic end.

      If you want to know more about the Twin Towers then this is the book for you. It tells you a lot of back round information and other things that you most likely didn't know about the Twin Towers. The story is based in a small town outside of New York where a family of 4 lives. Their dad is a fire fighter and was one of the first people on the scene on 9/11 when the towers were destroyed in a terrorist attack. So if you like stories that have a lot of action than this book is highly recommended for you.
