Booklist Review of Fighting Back in Flight
Riveting action relayed in a graphic-novel format joins traditional nonfiction text in this account of the valiant passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 93 as they fought with hijackers on 9/11. Without sensationalizing events, the graphic portion relays what happened aboard this fated plane, as gleaned from telephone calls made from those aboard, and highlights the brave actions and plan devised to retake control of the aircraft. The intensity of this section finds balance with the text that follows. This second portion of the book offers more details of the events that unfolded on 9/11 including the other hijackings and some of the heroic individuals involved in communicating with Flight 93 and foiling the terrorists’ plan. An affecting entry in the Never Forget: Heroes of 9/11 series (6 titles).
