The Longest New York Minute was born three years ago when my daughter, then nine years old, came home from school after the anniversary of 9/11, looking for something to read about it. As a cautious mother I began searching the internet looking for something age-appropriate for my "tween" daughter. To my astonishment, there was nothing! Everything was either too young or too old for her. (This is not to say that there might have been books targeted for that age group but I couldn't find them).
I began thinking and it didn't take long for the wheels in this writer/teacher's brain to start turning. Could I write a book? After some thought, I decided to give it a try. Now my daughter is twelve, and there is a book for both her and my ten year old son to enjoy. I hope you and your family enjoy it as well!
