September 11. A date we know so well, a day that holds meaning in the hearets of many; a day to remember the unforgetable. The book With Their Eyes by Annie Thoms is a book of monologues written and performed by a group of students from Stuyvesant High School, a school just a few blocks away from the World Trade Center. This book is all about how they felt, how they took the situation and how they made it better, and how it has effected them. They are about all different things, and they are told from many different perspectives, males and females, different races, and different ages. These stories are truly touching, and they really make you feel like you were there, and that you saw the twin towers falling down. It also shows you that different people were affected in different ways. Overall I love this book and I recommend it to anyone with who is interested about 9-11, or even someone who needs a good read.

I was in the middle of reading this book when Osama Bin Laden died. Even though I think everyone has a healthy interest in 9/11 I have more interest in the events than most teenagers who were only eight at the time of the attacks because I have a cousin who worked in the twin towers but thankfully survived but the play format in which they play different characters but tell their own story is kind of confusing. The book was very interesting to a point, I was interested in hearing everyone's accountant so I finished reading the entire book but I found it sort of difficult because it got boring near the middle when all the stories tended to start to be the same. They heard the boom, saw the smoke, were evacuated...etc. They were great stories and I have alot of respect for these students and faculty and those who perished but I found the way they spoke to be very annoying they often used um sometimes even three times in a row like um, um, um I saw the um smoke and well uh the smoke well the smoke was heavy and...so the wording was a little frustrating to follow and hard to understand by the time you read the four ums you had forgotten what the actual words before that were. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know what a students perspective was from ground zero and if you can get past the format and wording it's very informational. ( )

Monologues from Stuyvesant High School

Tuesday, September 11, started off like any other day at Stuyvesant High School, located only a few blocks away from the World Trade Center. The semester was just beginning, and the students, faculty, and staff were ready to begin a new year.

But within a few hours on that Tuesday morning, they would all share an experience that transformed their lives.

Now, on the tenth anniversary of September 11th, we remember those who were lost and those who were forced to witness this tragedy. Here, in their own words, are the firsthand stories of a day we will never forget.
