Summary:
Narrates the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, from the plane hijackings to the collapse of the World Trade Center.

On a beautiful September morning four planes crossed the sky on a deadly mission. Two crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City; one crashed into the Pentagon building in Washington, D.C.; and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. The impact of the events of September 11, 2001 changed the world forever. This book moves chronologically through that tragic morning to capture the emotion and pathos of the day for young readers. -- from Book Jacket.
