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. A glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts are also provided.

Kirkus Reviews

"...a gripping storyline. Although all three primary characters are white, Alikhan does explore prejudices immigrants faced along with tensions between religious groups. An author's note further explains that the Great Fire had a way of equalizing everyone. Tragedy often brings unity. . . .Fast-paced intrigue, especially for reluctant readers; there may be a plethora of survival stories, but this one doesn't disappoint." - Kirkus Reviews
