I Survived #11 The Great Chicago Fire, 1871 by Lauren Tarshis*

Oscar is not pleased about leaving his beloved farm in Minnesota for Chicago.  After his father's death in a blizzard, he vowed to keep the farm prosperous.  Then Charlie Morrow from Chicago arrived at their farm to draw pictures of it for the Chicago newspaper.  Pretty soon Mama and Charlie fell in love and married.
Oscar is not impressed with the large city when he arrives.  Soon he finds himself in the middle of the great Chicago Fire, separated from his mother and Charlie.
Very quick, exciting read.
Perfect series for boys and reluctant readers.
*Highly recommend.
We own this book.
