Warning tiny spoilers here and there I did the wrong thing in the beginning I judged a book by its cover After the first glance at the cover I thought this book would be the most boring book I have ever read It turns out it was one of the best books I ve ever read Usually I m not a fan of books about women s rights or slavery or any book of that matter but the author takes a spin on it having characters that could be fake but are relatable to the many workers at the real Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Plus what makes it better or for me sadder is that this really happened and it s sad so if you cry at the end of it and your mom says don t worry it s just a story it didn t really happen Yeah maybe it didn t happen to these characters that could ve been made up but it did happen to the people that worked in the Shirtwaist Factory and it affected the millions across the nation It s hard to believe that the events in this book happened to many others maybe But what s hard to believe is that after the fire had occurred some had to move on After their friends hadhave died they have to live with that and continue with their life some may have even started over with it have a new start but that thought of losing a family member or a friend but some can say that their friends were family still in the back of your mind because of poor safety It wasn t until the very end of the book when everything was done that actually pushed me over the edge and yes I cried for a millisecond of my life and that uote was Mrs Livingston hugs little Yetta close and whispers into her daughter s hair We will not be stupid girls We will not be powerless girls We will not be useless girls And for just a moment she believes she can hear two other voices whispering along with herYeah that stung a lot After reading the stories of those three young ladies living a difficult brutal life they still had hope Even if two of them had passed That was a reminder that that hope would never be lost even in the times when you thought there was everything but hope there And if those three girls along with a million others that were apart of any strike for that matter still believes that hope is still threaded throughout despair then trust me hope is still here it s still there It s everywhere
