    The mill owner's wife just suggested Ellen drop out of high school to work for her full time Boo hiss As if it wasn't bad enough that Ellen's father died in an accident at the steel mill leaving a hungry family without support except from his tired widowI very much enjoyed this book about an ambitious high school senior who is a talented seamstress and dress designer Her older sister is in domestic service with the mill owner but Ellen yearns not only to rescue her family from the wrong side of town but also to make her name in Chicago as a famous designer However when John Morgan a handsome protege of Jane Addams comes to town to start a local version of Hull House he enlists Ellen's help and soon she is spending every spare moment cleaning up the building and encouraging the local immigrants to attend classes She is assisted by her bible uoting feisty grandmother who although bedridden has her finger on the pulse of the whole neighborhood and can call in favors from former Sunday school pupils when necessary She is also assisted surprisingly by the lovely daughter of the mill owner who could be enjoying society insteadLike Beany Malone Ellen eventually realizes she is happier doing things for the unfortunate and coaxing donations out of the wealthy than sitting behind a desk all day In contrast to Emily Webster's work with Little Syria and Beany's work at Lilac Way where they are clearly not from the social strata they work with Ellen is part of Milltown although has the potential to leave it behind and this enables her to connect with visitors to Pearl Street House in a way they cannot When vouching for John Morgan she says He grew up poor like us and that helps calm suspicions My one fault with the book is that Ellen's ambition to be a designer is portrayed somewhat negatively and she is told by Jane Addams that she should use her talents to teach poor girls how to dress and thus improve their lives In reality it probably would have been a good and maturing experience for Ellen to spend a year in Chicago working for a famous dressmaker Her family was not as poor as some but definitely could have used the money she would have sent homeOverall however I really enjoyed this book and would give it a 4 12 and am ashamed I so carefully avoided this author growing up I remember exactly which shelf they were on at the library but there must have been some reason why I never checked them out Perhaps it was because she wrote one about a circus and even then I did not like books about animals in captivity This was a lucky find at a book sale several months ago

    So interesting but I am 72 years old and I read this book in grades school I remembered the title because it became a mantra for me when I went through tough times in my early years It is so indicative of the power of books and of reading Who could imagine that those few words and this title could have such an impact that I remember it so well to this day
