This isn't technically a chapter. But because of the sensitive subject matter, I felt a greater warning was needed than just putting it at the top of the first chapter, so no one just skips over it.
This is the story of a teenage Bella on a field trip with her class to the World Trade Center...you guessed it...on September 11, 2001. She is trapped in the North Tower when the planes hit and the towers fall. Every bit of the first two chapters revolves around that, most of the third, as well. From there on out, there are some flashbacks, nightmares, etc, so there are plenty of references, but they are most concentrated in the first two chapters.
I know that day in our history is a touchy subject for a lot of people. I won't be offended if you just simply can't read the story. I tried to be sensitive about it, to handle it with the care that all the victims, as well as their families, the rescuers, and anyone and everyone affected by the horrible attacks, deserves.
I hope I do it justice.
