This new I Survived installment weaves a tragic and terrifying tale of an event that could have been avoided. Lauren Tarshis is at the top of her game. Her books are very well-researched and so engaging for readers. I was unaware of this piece of history and it is heartbreaking to think of the people of Boston dealing with WW I, the Spanish Flu, and then this disaster on their waterfront. I was enthralled from the first and practically read it in one sitting. Love having a female survivor featured, too. Highly recommended.
