    Abbi cherishes her anonymity, and hopefully, as she spends this summer as a camp counselor out of town, no one will recognize her as Baby Hope. Even 15 years after 9/11, people still recognize her from the iconic photo of her one-year-old self clutching a balloon as she was rescued from day care at the World Trade Center complex. So much for plans, though: classmate Noah turns up as a fellow counselor. He not only knows who she is but also pressures her into working on a school journalism project identifying others shown from the back in the photo. In spite of Abbi's wishes for privacy, the two develop a partnership and eventual romance, narrating in alternating chapters. Noah's real reason for pursuing the project and suspense over Abbi's worrisome cough drive a strong plot with vivid characterizations and heartfelt emotion. Buxbaum evokes the tragedy and horror of a fateful day, spotlighting the post-9/11 lives of survivors and those who lost loved ones, as well as an illnesses linked to toxic exposure at the site. An illuminating and gut-wrenching tale. Grades 7-11. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
