KIRKUS REVIEW

 A fictional account of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire in N. Y. C., as seen by Rosie, a young Jewish girl whose older sister escapes but whose cousin does not. In the aftermath of the fire, Rosie accompanies her sister to an ILGWU meeting and shares her hope that the union will secure better conditions for the garment workers. A solid addition to the useful Once Upon America series. Illustrations not seen. (Fiction. 8-11)
