Floodwaters and Flames

I actually lived near Dayton, Ohio for many years and I don't really remember hearing about this.  Or maybe I did hear about it and have blocked it out ???  I found this to be an interesting lost history type of book and I like the fact that it looked at the event from multiple perspectives.  What I liked - it was relatively short and therefore accessible to my younger students.  What I didn't like - it was almost too short.  I felt like some of it was choppy and there wasn't enough information.  I feel like, as a librarian, I would need to try and find more books about the topic to supplement this.  Maybe Lauren Tarshis should do an I Survived book about this event ;0
