Young Readers Adaptation

Written by Tom Rinaldi

Welles Crowther was an ordinary person who touched many lives. Welles had always dreamed of being a firefighter, but went to college and started a Wall Street career. He worked on the 104th floor of the South Tower. Welles had decided he was ready to follow his dreams. Then September 11, 2001 came and lives were forever changed. Welles was one of those who led people out and never made it out himself. He stayed to help the other firefighters. And how did people know it was Welles who helped them? By the red bandanna he always carried! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Welles is an inspiration to us all…ordinary people doing extraordinary things one day at a time.
