Oscar Starling never wanted to come to Chicago. But then Oscar finds himself not just in the heart of the big city but in the middle of a terrible fire ( )

I liked this book for two main reasons. I enjoyed the language that the author used, as well as the plot in the story. The way the author writes feels as though the reader is present in the moment that they are in the story. When times are tense, the author writes in a frantic way, which brings the story to life. The plot of the story is also interesting because it is based off of a real event, but the story itself did not happen. I think this is interesting, and I also liked that the story kept the readers on their toes and was exciting throughout. The big idea in this book is to portray some of the events that took place during the Great Chicago Fire. ( )
