    Dora Pomeroy has always longed for a more traditional family. Her parents, who are in the theater business, have moved the family - Dora and her three younger sisters - more times than Dora can remember. Out of the twelve years of her life, Dora has only attended school for four years. Her happiest memories are of the past year spent on a ranch on the Nebraska prairie - ironically, her parents' worst memories. Now that the ranch has failed, the family is moving to Chicago - just in time for the [...]

    I loved this book. historical fiction is just great. i didn't know anything about the chicago world's fair and now i want to research the whole topic. Four sisters work at the fair in various children's jobs while their dad works at the Wild West Show and their mom works various jobs. The mom fancies herself an actress and the dad has a gambling problem so they move alot and are a non-traditional family. Read this to the girls. The beginning was slow but they really enjoyed it.

    Not too much to say about the book;just have read the first 3 Chapters.Seems typical for the time period,and the people involved.It's almost a new World and experience for them.A typical Story and situation,where the oldest child takes care of the younger one,only slightly assisted by the parents,who are more involved with their own careers and business.Will have more to say,when I have finished the book.

    I didn't actually read this but Ben did and liked it. I've been all jazzed about the Chicago World's Fair and wanted him to catch on too, so I got this and a couple others for him. He read it really fast and it did the trick - he wanted to learn more and dived right in to a nonfiction book about the fair with lots of pictures. Maybe I'll have to check out the rest of the series.
