    " I had learned about the Triangle fire from a display at my home library (vs. where I work) and found it fascinating that to this day people go around and write the names of those who died in the fire in chalk on the sidewalks where they used to live. When I found this book I had to read it. The tale is a tragic one of three girls who found themselves participating in efforts to unionize and be recognized as contributing members of society (unfortunately women are still looked down upon in this day and age). The three girls also found themselves in a tragic fire that changed the way buildings were maintained in America. Unfortunately tragedies still exist to this day and people leaping to their deaths from the Triangle factory building was repeated on another tragic day in New York City. Haddix is wonderful at putting a face on history. "

    " Well I have always liked how Margaret Haddix wrote her books. When I was in Social Studies we learned about the triswatch and how people commited suicide and got burned alive. So that really connected to me. "

    " The story was beautiful. I love the impressions the characters left of their lives at that time period and I certainly learned a history lesson I would never had paid attention to before. "

    " This was cleverly written showing the perspective of three girls who became unlikely best friends. It was a very clever way to tell the plight of women factory workers in the early 1900's. There are good plot twists and excitement as everbody scrambles for their lives in one of the worst workplace fire disasters of all time. This was hard to put down for the 2nd 1/2 of the book! The afterword is excellent, too. "
