Jean Colaio writes from her heart about her firsthand experience on 9/11, and the aftermath of sorting out life after the loss of her two brothers. Her style is honest and direct as she recounts the many layers of pain that enveloped her and her family. Readers encounter a very personal take on the historic tragedy that shocked the world, along with very personal reflections that attempt to make peace with her new reality. I highly recommend this book. It contributes greatly to the understanding of what people close to the tragedy actually experienced.

Well written first hand account of the tremendous loss a sister encounters. Spiritual and inspirational as well. As a Former Hicksville resident, I felt a connection to the author and read the book in two hours cover to cover. Just could not put it down.

Pretty cool account of a 9/11 survivor. The author is a neighbor and unfortunately lost several family members that day. Too much of that went on that day in this town.
That Day: My Story of September 11th by Jean Colaio will be displayed in the 2015 New York Book Expo's New Title Showcase.
