Riveting action relayed in a graphic-novel format joins traditional nonfiction text in this account of the valiant passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 93 as they fought with hijackers on 9/11. Without sensationalizing events, the graphic portion relays what happened aboard this fated plane, as gleaned from telephone calls made from those aboard, and highlights the brave actions and plan devised to retake control of the aircraft. The intensity of this section finds balance with the text that follows.
