Product Description


When Will Fuller’s grade nine history teacher, Mrs. Phelps, tells him that tomorrow “might be an experience that changes your entire life,” neither of them knows just how spot on her forecast will be. For the “tomorrow” she refers to is September 11, 2001, when Will is to travel by commuter train to job shadow with his stock trader father in his Dad’s offices in Manhattan’s prestigious Twin Towers at the World Trade Center. And thanks to the superb storytelling skills of Mississauga author and former teacher, Eric Walters, it turns out that “tomorrow” is a day when Will learns more than he ever expected to about his Dad, his Dad’s job and his Dad’s love for him and his Mom. And we all learn lots about the courageous bond between a man and his son during one of the world’s worst man-made disasters. The story is a vibrant and captivating tribute to the heroism of his two main characters and the memories of everyone who suffered on that tragic day when the Twin Towers fell.
Walters knows how to tell a riveting tale, how to ratchet up the tension, and how to create credible characters speaking realistic dialogue in believable situations, all to educate and entertain. And this fast-paced and at times breath-taking novel is a prime example of Walters’s literary talent.
In the just under two hundred pages of the first-person story that Will tells, Walters provides succinctly fleshed out portraits of a son and father in a life and death struggle, battling fire, smoke, and debris as they scramble down 85 floors of crumbling stairs. On the way they argue with office workers refusing to leave their desks, compete with each other in carrying an injured secretary on their backs, glimpse a television news report of the suicide planes crashing into the towers, observe the horror of people jumping to their death, and pass gear-laden firefighters doggedly clanking up the stairs while they determinedly head down. And as the story spins out floor by agonising floor, minute by terrifying minute, Will’s youthful heroism feeds off of his new-found respect for a Dad he thought was always too busy to pay much attention to him. In turn, Will’s father comes to realize his son has become the young man he had hoped for. And by the time we reach the hair-raising climax of the story, we are more than willing to believe Mrs. Phelps was right about Will’s “tomorrow” being a life-changing experience, and in more ways than one.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Story Description:

Doubleday Canada|January 23, 2007|Mass Market Paperbound|ISBN: 978-0-7704-2992-8

A novel from one of the country's most prolific and popular YA authors, this book, set in New York City on September 11th , shows us how the experiences of that day profoundly changed one teen's life and relationships.

Today is September 10, 2001, and Will a grade nine student, is spending the day at his father's workplace tomorrow. As part of a school assignment, all the students in his class will be going to their parents work tomorrow, but Will isn't excited about it - he'd rather sleep in and do nothing with his friends. His father doesn't even have an exciting job like his best friend James's father who is a fireman. Will's Dad works for an international trading company and has to wake up early every morning to commute to his office on the eighty-fifth floor in the south building of the World Trade Center in Manhattan. Will doesn't see his father very often because of the hours he puts in at the office. He doubts that his dad will bother making time for him tomorrow even when they are supposed to be spending the day together.

In this fast-paced and dramatic new novel by bestselling author Eric Walters, Will discovers a new side of his father during an event that continues to affect the world. As Will's new teacher says, tomorrow "might be an experience that changes your entire life."

My Review:

Will Fuller and James Bennett played in a band together with a couple of other guys and they were trying to come up with a name. When Mrs. Phelps their history teacher mentioned the bubonic plague or Black Death, they thought that might be a fitting name.

I haven't read the book yet, and I'm sure it is well done. However, the online excerpt illuminates a jarring historical error -- the iPod was not in widespread use on September 10, 2001. It only took me a few seconds on Google to ascertain that it was launched in October 2001. Certainly, high schoolers would not have had it in their possession.

I'm surprised that Mr. Walters or his editors didn't perform this simple fact check, particularly as he writes historical fiction.
