When eight year-old Thomas Z. Amsterel went with his father to pick up some air tickets from his Uncle Omar's office he could not have known that he would become a catalytic participant in a terrorists' four-day siege, and his life, most importantly his relationship with his father, would take a far-reaching new direction. Rosemary Harris has very enterprisingly fused those past events with Zed's life eight years on. Her storytelling is topical, tense and psychologically exact. Definitely worth recommending to older readers. Perhaps a more approachable alternative to Cormier's After the First Death.
