We Can Be Heroes by Catherine Bruton

we-can-be-heroes-cvrMy dad was killed in the 9/11 attacks. But the stuff in this book isn’t about that. It’s about the summer my mom went away.

The summer that me and Jed and Priti tried to catch a suicide bomber and prevent an honor killing. There’s stuff about how we built a tree house and joined the bomb squad; how I found my dad and Jed lost his; and how we both lost our moms then found them again.

So it’s not really about 9/11 but, then again, none of those things would have happened if it hadn’t been for that day. So I guess it’s all back to front, sort of.
