KRISTEN BREITWEISER WAS A HAPPY YOUNG SUBURBAN MOTHER AND HOUSEWIFE LEADING A PRIVILEGED LIFE. THEN, ON THE MORNING OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, HER HUSBAND, RON, CALLED FROM HIS OFFICE IN THE WORLD TRADE CENTRE.

"Sweets, I'm okay. I'm okay. Don't worry... It's not my building. " Kristen didn't know what he was saying. He told her to turn on the television. He continued. "They are jumping out of the windows. Right across from me... Sweets, I'm safe... But I have to go."

The call ended abruptly and Kristen watched with horror as the second tower exploded. In that frozen instant, she felt in her heart that Ron had been killed.

WAKE-UP CALL is the deeply personal, often shocking, and ultimately inspirational story of a woman whose world was shattered by terrorism — and who, with no husband by her side or father for her child, found the courage and strength to not only build a new life, but become one of the country's most outspoken activists and harshest critics of the current administration.

A former Rcpublican, Breitweiser, along with three other 9/11 widows (known to the media as "The Jersey Girls''), fought tirelessly for the creation of the 9/11 Commission, in spite of strong opposition from President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, and many other top government officials. While describing her journey, Breitweiser discloses eye-opening information about mistakes made prior to the 9/11 attacks, cover-ups discovered during her campaign for the 9/11 Commission, surprising encounters with some of the country's most powerful officials, and unsettling facts about present-day national security.

Moving, hard-hitting, and revelatory, Kristen Breitweiser's audiobook is a wake-up call no American can ignore.

KRISTEN BREITWEISER is one of the nations leading 9/11 activists. She appears frequently on national television as a commentator on matters related to terrorism and has been featured in the New York Times. Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, Oprah, Glamour, and Ms., and is a frequent contributor to The Huffington Post and other publications. Breitweiser was named Woman of the Year by both Ms. and Glamour, and won the 2005 Ron Ridenhour Truth-Telling Award. She lives in New York City with her daughter.
