A great reminder of the battles fought by women

and labor workers in the early 1900s. I couldn't decide at the end of the book if I hoped the characters were real or fictional. The struggles and passion of those that fought these battles were portrayed beautifully.

A very thought provoking story.

Bella, Yetta and Jane, Bella Yetta and Jane. Three unlikely allies with different paths yet destined to change our future. What if the shirt waste strike and fire hadn't happened? I wonder.

Well-written historical story for middle school

Would you listen to Uprising again? Why?

For students who like to have history come alive, this book is worth reading (listening to.) It's a fictionalized account of events leading up to the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911. It also brings to life social issues of the day: workers' rights, factory conditions, immigrants' lives, social class differences, women's rights.

What did you like best about this story?

Told from three perspectives

Which character – as performed by Suzanne Toren – was your favorite?

I enjoyed all three main characters but especially Bella, the Italian immigrant.
