Book Cover Exploring The Chicago World's Fair, 1893
Laurie Lawlor

I like this book because it had a lot of different twists. First, they can't live with there father because the place he works at doesn't allow girls. Second, they barely have a enough money for food and a shelter. Then, the girls mother changes a lot. She becomes a Hootchy Cootchy Dancer. Her children Dora, Lillian, Phoebe, and Tess were embarresed. In the end they loose their youngest sister, Tess. They find her. This is an amazing book written about 1893.

This book is about a orphan girl named Cady, she is the only one left at Miss Mallory's Home for Girls. She has a talent for baking, she can look at somebody and know their perfect cake. Also in this book there are chapters that are from different characters point of view. And some parts of this book has 2 or 3 or maybe more little stories/events happing at a time!!! If you think this sounds good I think you should read it. (I really like the Prologue and the Epilogue!!!!)
