4 stars

Review: I gave this book a 4 star rating because it was easy to understand, and gave me more insight on this tragic event. I finally realized how many innocent people from all over America were affected by these events. The book was a bit slow in the beginning, and had a couple of slow spots throughout the book, but was definitely worth reading. The book taught me a lot about friendships. I would recommend this book to people who like history, and people who don’t as well. This book can be enjoyed by everyone!
