There are lots of conflicts in this story but the biggest one occurs when the FBI thinks Sam's dad was involved helping a terrorist plan the attack on 9/11. They take Sam's dad away and it causes Sam to act differently. Sam and his best friend Jake say some terrible things to one another which causes each of them more sadness.

Problem, conflict


What you think about the Book?

Ever since 9/11 happened, Bobby has been bullying Sam. He beat him up one time, called him diaper head, and even spit on his lunch! But later on, Jake realize something wasn't right when he overheard Bobby making a really terrible plan. He told his friend Sam thinking it had something to do with him. And it turned out he was somewhat correct because Bobby made water bottle bombs and threw them at an Islam place which was Sam's religon. Together as a team, they stop Bobby from killing people. And at the end of when their relationship has been testing them, it shows that their friendship can never be broken.

I would definately recommend this book to my friends because it has a good suspensful storyline. I also liked learning more about the events of 9/11. My least favorite part was when Jake was falsely accused of doing something he didn't do. I felt frustrated that he was accused of doing something that he didn't do and then had to prove he was innocent.
