Transcript of We All Fall Down.
Will Fuller, a grade nine student who visits his dad's job, in the Twin Towers and the main character.
John Fuller, Will's dad.
Ting, a injuried survivor who speaks little english. Will Fuller, a grade nine student, is in history class with his best friend James Bennett. As the class comes to an end, James tells the class how he will be going with his dad, a firefighter, to work tomorrow while Will is not looking foward to tomorrow as he must go with his dad, John Fuller, (who he describes to be never home due to work), to his office on the 85th floor at the South World Trade Centre Tower. Early next morning, Will thinks it over and agrees to going with his dad, to spend the day at his office. When they finally arrive, Will is overwhelmed by the sight of the World Trade Center, but is still unsure of the day ahead of him. To his surprise, he actually starts to enjoy and appreciate his dad's job. Upon arriving at his dad's office, Will is left with John's secretary, Suzie, after his dad is called for a special meeting. Afterwards, he returns to his dad's room, where a sudden, loud noise rocks them. To their surprise, the North Tower has been hit by an airplane, and John, Will's dad, the fire Warden of the floor, orders the floor to evacuate despite their tower being undamaged. Afraid at first, the employees eventually begin their way down the tower. As their office leaves, John goes around to other offices on the floor to evacuate the floor, but, one of the managers of one of the offices refuses to leave. As the argument between them becomes heated, an announcement over the TV states that it is not necessary for the tower to evacuate, and that workers may return to their offices. John and Will leave the office, and, despite the announcement, John decides to evacuate anyways. As they head towards the staircase, another sudden, loud noise rocks the building. They realize that a plane has hit the South Tower. During their evacuation, they come across a level where they find an injured and trapped woman who speaks very little English named Ting. Will they all make it out before the rest of the building collapses, or will the injuries of Ting, and smoke be too awful to continue? The begginning of the book, starts in Will's history class. Settings We All Fall Down Eric Walters Eric Walters was born and raised in Toronto in 1957and now lives in Mississauga, Ontario, with his wife Anita and his dogs Lola and Winnie the Poodle, while his three grown children, Christina, Nick, and Julia, also live there.

A part of the book, takes place in Will's house. Majority of the book takes place in the Twin Towers, before and after the plane crash. It all began in 1993 when Eric was teaching a Grade 5 class. His students were shy readers and writers and Eric began to write to encourage them to become more involved in literature. His first novel, Stand Your Ground was created for this class. It is set in the school where Eric was teaching, Vista Heights Public School, and some of the features of the community of Streetsville and many of the names of his students were incorporated into the story.
Since this first novel Eric has literally exploded on the children's young adult literature scene. Over the following years he has published seventy more novels with more scheduled for the coming years.
These novels have been enthusiastically received by children and young adults and critically acclaimed by teachers, reviewers and parents. Eric's novels have won more than 100 awards including eleven separate children's choice awards. He is the only three time winner of both the Ontario Library Association Silver Birch and Red Maple Awards - in which over 250,000 students participate and vote for the winners.
While remaining one of the best selling children's authors in the country, Eric's novels are now available in places as far away as New Zealand and Australia and have been translated into French, German, Swedish, Norweign, Chinese, Dutch, Korean, Japanese, Italian, Spanish and Slovenian.
Eric has also moved beyond merely writing for children. He has presented to over 1,400,000 children across the country. His presentations blend drama, storytelling, audience participation and interaction. He not only wants his audience to hear about his books, but about the writing process and how they can become more excited about writing.
Some books he has written, that you might know: Questions From the look of the title and cover, what do you think this book is gonna be about? why? ( if you already know, don't spoil it! ) Have you read a book from this author? Which book? Read Aloud
(pages 189-193) I chose this passage because I was at the edge of my seat, I really wanted to know what happened next. I just love suspenseful parts, they get me all hyped up, and excited. I was also about to cry, because everytime I read a book that I really like, I grow feelings for the characters, and I was afraid if any of them got hurt or even died. I really liked this book because it was based on a true story, and it kept me interested to read more. It is also dedicated to the victims of 9/11 who passed, and who still live till this day, which I thought was sweet. It's very descriptive like his other books, (I'm guessing, I haven't read them) which make you imagine what's going on in the book, in your head. I would rate this book 9.5/10 because it was entertaining, and worth reading. I gurantee you'll like this book, well... hopefully. This novel is for MATURE teens, this is a very serious incident that will go down in history Thanks for listening, now let's fly!! :D
Any Questions, before we lift off?
