In his new novel, David Levithan takes us back to those horrifying days of september 2001, when so many people`s lifes were changed forever. We follow youngsters Claire, Jasper and Peter as they struggle to get on with their lives and try to grasp what happened. The author`s aim was not only to try and deal with his own feelings, but also to reach as many young readers as possible, since there will be so many of them who were too young to understand what happened. David Levithan has written many young adult books. Together with Rachel Cohn, he wrote the novel "Nick and Norah`s infinite playlist", which has been a huge success at the movies.
