Of the radium girls haunt us still NPR Books The Radium Girls makes it impossible for you to ignore these women's incredible stories and proves why now than ever we can't afford to ignore science either Bustle Written in a highly readable narrative style Moore's chronicle of these inspirational women's lives is sure to provoke discussion and outrage in book groups Booklist STARRED review A must read for anyone interested in American and women's history as well as topics of law health and industrial safety Library Journal STARRED review. This is an incredibly moving true story of young female workers being asked to do a poisonous job even though scientists had some inkling it was dangerous and the attempts to discredit the sick and dying women This is a young reader edition aimed at ages 8 12 and it's still pretty gruesome Some students could handle this with no problem; others might find it too upsetting It is an interesting bridge between science and reading thoughThanks to the publishers and NetGalley for a digital ARC for the purpose of an unbiased review
