Review of Drop Out By Neil D. Ostroff

Drop Out
By Neil D. Ostroff
**** stars

Nathan 36 years old survives 9/11 while losing his entire family including his fiancée (who was 3 & 1/2 months pregnant with his son. He "drops out" of life and flees to the Florida Keys where he survives through yet another near death experience (in the form of a hurricane) and is taken in by a 27 year old woman named Miriam who is dying of pancreatic cancer (with many of her own skeletons in the closet) and is trying to get every last second of her life lived to the fullest she can. There lives connect. Him giving her a wonderful ending and she giving him a new beginning. Each of them helping each other heal and move on to the next phase of there lives.

What I loved about this story was you read so many things now about 9/11 but nothing transported me there like this book did. I felt as though I was there with Nathan fighting to survive. It was just so powerful. I cried from beginning to end. A definite must read!
