The book is solidly researched and a good read. The story revolving around Hallelujah brings out many highlights of the historical accounts of the Great Fire. That said, I found the plot to be contrived at times. However I loved learning about the time of the fire and recovery. The story illustrates how people of all ages, races, ethnicity, and means tend to pull together in times of great catastrophe and stress.
The recommended reading age is 8/9-12 but I would err on the older side. The main character is often introspective in a way that is definitely more mature than would be natural for an 8, 9, or even the average 10 year old. I think that 10/11, 12, or even 13 is a better reading age and keep in mind that it is definitely more of a "girl" read because of the main character. Also---there are references to some grisly aspects of the fire. I think these are more appropriate for the slightly older reader as well.
