Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, January 17, 2011:
“Published to coincide with the centennial anniversary of the 1911 fire that erupted in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, this powerful chronicle examines the circumstances surrounding the disaster…Marrin’s message that protecting human dignity is our shared responsibility is vitally resonant.”

Starred Review, Booklist, April 1, 2011:
“Sure to spark discussion, this standout title concludes with source notes and suggested-reading lists that will lead students to further resources for research and debate.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, May 2011:
“The writing is compelling and detailed, and the author effectively manages to bridge the gap between detached expository writing and emotionally charged content…this is a useful and thoughtful addition to any American history collection.”
