The Longest New York Minute

By Tracy Popolizio


Thirteen-year old Jessica Bianchi has it all. A close-knit Christian family, an apartment in New York City, the greatest city in the world, a best friend who knows her inside and out, acceptance into an awesome art school, and a crush on one of the cutest boys in the class. Her biggest problem is that her father doesn’t seem to understand her anymore. Besides this, life couldn’t be better.
But then Tuesday, September 11, 2001, happens. The safe, secure world Jessica knows crumbles right in front of her eyes. The Twin Towers are attacked, her father is missing, and her mother is in another state. Jessica’s faith is tested in ways that didn’t seem possible. Will she survive the terror around her long enough to find her father and right the wrong between them?
In The Longest New York Minute, author Tracy Popolizio explores the innermost struggles of a young girl who must choose to lean on the faith she’s been taught or collapse under the weight of her worst fear.

Why the author wrote this book:

My daughter, who was 9 years old at the time, expressed interest in reading more about 9/11. After researching books available, finding nothing geared for her age, God laid it on my heart to write a story for her and my younger son.
