Haddix is a masterful writer. The history is spot on. The three women come from different backgrounds but they live in the same city and time and the movement for worker and women rights is important to all of them. The tragic ending evokes a sense of anger as much as sorrow to think that the fire could have easily been altogether avoided.

This book was very easy to get into. Once i picked it up i couldnt put it down because i had to know what would happen next. This book takes you through a period of a few years which makes you feel like you actually know the characters ! I highly recommend this book !

The book was boring at first, but it picked up the more I stuck with it. Tragic that things like this happen in the world... Glad my friend recomended this book. I love the author!
