One of my Comp 102 classes is working with oral histories taken from survivors of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire for their current researchwriting project My favorite university librarian a history buff has been great about sending me articles and other information to share with the students This week she loaned me Davies's excellent YA novel I read it in two evenings Davies intertwines two stories from the turn of the last century the disappearance of the daughter of a wealthy family and the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire I was disappointed that the union strikes played no role in the novel the narrator only mentions them once at the end and really only in passing as I believe the workers' uest for better working conditions preceding the tragedy make it all the outrageous and alarmingI'll be sending copies of this to several young readers though as it is well written and creates a thoughtful portrait of the life of a young factory worker
