An absolute must-read is *Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close* by Jonathan Safran Foer. It depicts the tragedy of 9/11 in a way that’s completely unique from other books in its genre. The novel follows a young child whose father died in the attacks, and his journey to find something his dad left behind. As someone who was also a child during the 9/11 attacks, I related a lot with the confusion and hurt that the protagonist felt. By viewing the tragedy through his perspective, someone who’s young and doesn’t understand all the details that the adults in his life know, it felt even more real.
