From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8 At ten, Rose, the next-to-youngest of five siblings newly arrived in America, is self-reliant and determined; as Angell follows her over the next six years, Rose displays these traits in force. The family Olshansky had emigrated from Eastern Europe in 1893 for the better future that America promiseda promise mostly unfulfilled. One-Way to Ansonia describes the effects of the ghetto experience on headstrong Rose, who always yearns for more. Angell colors her story with snippets of history and customs of New York City's Lower East Side at the turn of the centurythe living and working arrangements, the food, the music, the views of men's and women's roles, the unionsbut these reflections of the period are not well integrated and do not advance the story. Moreover, none of the characterssave the indomitable Roseare distinct personnages, and the sisters and their landsmen with whom they live tend to become muddled in readers' minds. But Rosethere's a special character, whose spirited independence will earn her a place in readers' hearts. David Gale, "School Library Journal"
