All We Have Left by Wendy Mills
Sixteen-year-old Jesse's brother died on 9/11 in the Towers. She was only two and it seems as though all of the memories of Travis died when he did. Surely, dying isn't the most important thing about his life. Sixteen-year-old Alia is Muslim and her parents just grounded her. She is headed to her dad's office on September 11, 2001 to discuss the situation, even if it means she'll be late to school. The background story is on the news. The real story is Jesse finally learning what happened there and how that impacts her life now.
