Acclaimed young adult author Margaret Peterson Haddix consistently captivates listeners with unforgettable books like Among the Hidden and Just Ella. Uprising is a gripping account of a great labor upheaval that sparked unprecedented reforms for workplace safety. The year is 1910, and the working conditions at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory are deplorable. Bella, Yetta, and Jane all become passionately involved in a workers' strike-then bear witness to a catastrophic fire that changes everything.
