Leah Braves the Flood: A Great Molasses Flood Survival Story

Leah dreams of leaving behind the crowded streets of Boston's North End neighborhood to journey west. It's the only way she'll have the future she wants — one that doesn't involve her getting married or working in a factory. But then the molasses tank at the local plant explodes, sweeping through the city streets. The wave destroys everything in its path, and suddenly Leah must fight to survive if she wants to have any future at all.

This historical fiction novel from the Girls Survive series tells the true story of the 1919 Boston molasses flood that killed 21 people. Kids will hold their breaths as they watch the disaster unfold through Leah's eyes, and imagine what they would do in her position. A glossary, discussion questions, and other nonfiction material at the back provide additional information for young readers to learn more about this unique event in American history.
