Emmi in the City: A Great Chicago Fire Survival Story

Although Emmi has lived in Chicago for two years, she finds it hard to love her adopted city. As a German immigrant in the early 1870s, she's often teased by her America-born peers. But when the Great Fire breaks out on October 8, 1871, Emmi and her enemies find themselves braving the smoke and flames together. Can Emmi and the others survive the danger to escape the burning city?

Readers can learn the real story of the Great Chicago Fire from the nonfiction back matter in this Girls Survive story, which includes a glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts. Emmi's story is a powerful tale of immigration, identity, and unity as she and her neighbors come together in the midst of disaster.
