9781405256520: We Can Be Heroes

A moving, funny, explosive debut, and a truly memorable voice. Includes the protagonist's eight-page manga comic at the end.

My 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.
