It takes place just after the twin towers collapsed from the airplane terrorist attack, The main character struggles to keep his head on straight after being in that kind of disaster.

    • This book is a great sequel book to the original United We Stand (We All Fall Down #1). This book is about the aftermath of the terrorist attack on the New York World Trade Center. Our protagonists were inside the tower during the time of the attack. They were above the attack. The author includes many small details that help you imagine what it would have been if you were in the World Trade Center at the time of the attack. Also, this book is a great book because it is a good book to relax. If [...]

    • this book is a great aftermath story of 911. Will and his best friend are still recovering from yesterday's terrorist attack. Wills friend, James. suffered the loss of his dad after the building collapsed. in the book will and James go down to ground zero secretly tho do something brave. I don't want to give any big spoilers, so i won't say any more. all in all this is a great read. I wouldn't say that it's better than the first book but it's still great story.

    • It is the day after the World Trade Centre attacks, and the city is in chaos. Many have survived, but thousands have not. This is the story of how Will, a 15 year old boy, helps a struggling friend accept the reality of losing a father. A breathtaking novel that shows you the power of standing together in the worst of times.I picked up this book because I have read the first book "We All Fall Down", and I absolutely loved it, so I decided to give the second one a shot as well.I finished the stor [...]

    • Eric Walters arrive vraiment bien à décrire ce terrible attentat. Les deux tours jumelles, un symbole de l'Amérique comme étant un état libre et grandiose. Ce qui est arrivé est terrible et bien que je ne connaissais pas les victimes, ça m'a beaucoup affecté. je n'avais que 5 ans quand c'est arrivé mais pourtant je me rappelle avoir vu aux nouvelles, les 2 tours s'effondrer. Ces deux livres nous montre vraiment et en détails, des vies touchées par cet acte terroriste. C'est comme expl [...]

    • Dramatic, gripping, and moving, this sequel to the award-winning We All Fall Down will captivate readers.It’s September 12th, 2001, and New York City is at a standstill: somber, bleak and shocked in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks.

    • I would not consider myself having read this book because I stopped half of the way. I really liked some of the concept that the author was bringing forward. However, the main characters were not interesting and lifeless. They had all of the emotions but somehow it seemed as though they were not developed enough because of the way that they reacted to the situation. Although, I know I am not the one to judge because I have not been involved in this same issue but the story line was not enough to [...]

    • Rated this book, 5 stars because not only does this book about racism, but it is a powerful book, where others have been bullied and need help. I liked how the character stood for themselves, just because of their skin tone. Just because a person has different skin tone as you, doesn't mean that you should bully others. Put yourself into other people's shoes. I believe that racism will one day end

    • I felt really sad for James, and that made me think about losing my father which made me even sadder. The whole time they were "walking", I kept thinking "oh no, Mom is totally gonna find out" and screaming "go home! You have to go home now!" But overall, I liked it. I liked the first one better, though, because there was more action, of course.

    • This is not an amazing book. In my opinion, it is not a n amazing job from the author. However, because the theme is so real, and made damages in so many lives, it made this book a good reading and sometimes, very touching. While I was reading this book, I couldn't help myself but, recall the 9/11 events and the following days.

    • Again, this book felt BOOTYFUL. DERICIOUS. Amazing like mama's BRAIN BISCUITS!I already reviewed the first book, We all fall down, and i liked it. As i said, it ended weirdly, and with the sequel, it filled more but less. It was wierd how it was made, but i still liked it.Really liked it, 4.5/5

    • I thought this book was OKAY. If I was somebody who read the first I would not recommend reading the sequel because nothing really happened. There were no exciting parts. It was just after the tragedy what had happened. Although I did really like the first one and would recommend "We All Fall Down" (the first book) to anyone who loves historical fiction/realistic fiction.

    • This book was an amazing sequel to We All Fall Down, which was one of my favourite books to begin with. In my opinion, it really tackles the feeling left behind by the loss of all those lives in 9/11, especially New York's bravest. I'm a Canadian and I find I'm at a loss for words. I remember seeing it on CNN with my mother, and I was only a child, but I remember the shock.

    • I thought it was a good book, however it wasn't what I was expecting after reading We All Fall Down. This book is that sequel to We All Fall Down. United we stand wasn't as action packed, leaning to the edge of you seat wanting to know what was about to happen, it was more a talk about the aftermath of the World Trade Center terrorist attack.

    • I loved the book! An amazing sequel to We All Fall Down. But we all fall down was more interesting like i couldn't put it down! I insisted we all fall down in just 1 night! But united we stand is still good

    • It was an easy read as it is meant for teens. The story gave a realistic picture of what it is like to go through such a tragedy and the after affects on a person. Liked the two contrasting stories of survival and not.

    • This was a fabulous follow-up to We All Fall Down. Walters deals with the emotions and the grief as the characters grapple with their new reality and try to comprehend what has taken place. Very well done!

    • I didn't find this book quite as strong as the first, mainly because some of the events that happen, less than 24hrs after the attacks, seem a bit far-fetched. However, Walters does a good job illustrating the hurt, anger, and trauma that would have impacted the boys, and their families.

    • Don't like it that much mainly because after the first book, there was really nothing else to tell as a story. It just tells the road of James's recovery from the grief and how Will helps him. Other than that, there was really no story or interest to it.
