    DescriptionI was doing my best to get out the door. And then the phone rang. I almost let it go. New York, September 11th, 2001 Russell Ammiano is rushing to work when he gets a phone call that saves his life. As the city he loves is hit by unimaginable tragedy, Russell must turn his back and hurry home to Kansas. Kansas, September 14th 2001 Ben Ammiano is mentally disabled, and a creature of habit. Any change to his routine sends him into a spin. But now his estranged brother has reappeared, and Ben's simple, ordered world has turned upside down. In a story as heartbreaking as it is uplifting, two brothers must bury their pasts and learn from each other, if they are to survive.

    Back cover copy
    Russell briefly has it all – a life, an uptown apartment and a good job at the World Trade Center, New York. But at 8am on September 11th, 2001 as he’s rushing to leave for the office, the phone rings. Staying back to take the call has just saved his life. As a global tragedy unfolds, Russell must deal with his own devastating news: his mother has died, leaving his mentally disabled brother, Ben, all alone. Leaving New York to return to his small hometown, Russell must try to deal with the events that have just happened in his city, as well as his own grief, compounded by the painful awareness that he is now all that Ben has. Adjusting to a new life isn’t easy. Can Russell ever move on with his own life while his brother so depends on him? Or is there a way for the two to put the past behind them and teach each other how to survive?
