School Library Journal

"Each chapter tells a piece of the story by rotating through the perspectives of those who were there; this helps immerse readers in the historical events and put themselves in the place of those who experienced it. The page layouts are highly appealing, with full-color photographs and bright graphics for captions and different sections. . . .Written at a third grade reading level and appropriate for struggling middle and high school readers, these superior nonfiction titles stand out with their attention to detail and captivating narratives." - School Library Journal
