Book Review


The twin towers in New York City are famous for being the World Trade Center as well as other devastating events. But did you know that there was a man named Philippe Petit who wanted to walk across a tight rope between those two buildings in the 1970s? This book is about how he snuck into the World Trade Center and traversed the gap 1,350 feet up in the air. This book is enthralling, but ends on a bittersweet note as the towers are no longer there.
