I Survived #6: I Survived the Attacks of September 11th, 2001 Hardcover – July 1, 2012
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.

You can decide how much to share and show about 9/11 outside of the book. There is one picture of the first tower being hit in the book. That's it. Then it talks a lot about the fire fighters that helped people and sacrificed their lives. But the book really focuses on how many people escaped. There is one death at the end of the book, but the character is a periphery character and NOT any of the main characters. One of the main characters is wounded. It has a happy ending. When we finished the book, we watched a You Tube of the completed 9/11 memorial to show what is now at the location of the Twin Towers.

It was a good book but younger readers may be frightened. All in all I would recommend this book for ages 8-12
