The story offers a
hypotheticalminute-by-minute account narratedby a father who is accompanied by his two sons (ages 7 and 9) who are having a tourist-style breakfast at Windows on the Worldrestaurant on the 107th floor of the World Trade Centeron the morning of September 11, 2001. Each chapter, averaging three pages a piece, represents one minute from the time the building is hit at 8:46am to its collapse at 10:28am.
