"Nordstrom’s detailed narrative offers a balance of seriousness and humor that will enlighten and inspire readers; it belongs on the shelves of every public and school library."

 Library Journal

"A powerful story of dedication and determination."

— Kirkus

“It was the honor of a lifetime to advocate and testify with Lila Nordstrom who represented a large portion of the 9/11 community that often went unnoticed and would have remained unnoticed without her voice and courage.”

— JON STEWART, comedian, writer, political commentator, and former host of The Daily Show

“With Lila’s commitment to justice, her dedication to serving as a champion for the vulnerable, and her capacity to deftly navigate the harsh, often vicious world of health care and politics, she has made a meaningful, lasting impact in the lives of tens of thousands of others affected by the attacks of September 11.”

— CONGRESSMAN JERROLD NADLER (NY-10)
