Holly Littlefield is the author of several books for young readers. She lives in Maple Grove, Minnesota.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5?This is a story of two fictional young girls who become involved in a real-life tragedy. On March 25, 1911, the Triangle Shirtwaist Company went up in flames, killing 146 workers, some of whom were as young as 14. Minnie, a Jewish girl, and Tessa, an Italian Catholic, are friends and coworkers at the factory. Littlefield relates the historical events through these likable characters with whom youngsters will easily identify. She creates the mood with an earnest writing style. The girls' different backgrounds are handled in a natural way, and at the end readers are left with the feeling that these young women may have taught their elders a lesson in friendship. The colorful illustrations complement the text and follow the story nicely. The text is large and easy to read. A good addition.?William C. Heckman, Lake Forest Elementary, Hollywood, FL
