it was amazing

It was slow reading at first - but I put the blame on this being a children's book.

This is the true story of famous photographer Lewis Hine's battle against child labor in 1910. He wanted proof that American children were working seventy-two hours a week in dangerous conditions for a salary of $2.50.

Even though his partner in crime, Grace, is a fictional character, her story was woven from the girl in Hine's picture on the cover, Addie Card.
