Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

San Francisco -- April 18, 1906

Brendan O'Connor is delivering pastries to the bustling businesses and elegant hotels of San Francisco, dreaming that someday he will be a part of that life. Li Dai Yue is running from the isolated seciruty of Chinatown, distraught over the marriage her uncle has arranged for her. Chance throws them together on the day of the San Francisco earthquake. Can two strangers from such different worlds work together to survive the terror of crumbling buildings, fire, looting, and chaos?

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8?Brendan O'Connor, a young delivery driver, and Dai Yue, a 13-year-old Chinese girl who lives with her uncle, meet during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Brendan is preoccupied with his daily tasks and Dai Yue is worried about her prearranged marriage to an older man. As she steps in front of Brendan's wagon, a great roar comes from the earth, and the city is thrown into chaos. Both young people survive, but numerous obstacles make life a challenge. Facing huge cultural differences, a natural disaster, and the anger of Dai Yue's uncle, the two manage to stay together during the troubled times. While parts of the plot are implausible, the book appears to be well researched, with interesting descriptions of businesses, buildings, differing perspectives of cultures, and likable characters. An adequate addition to historical fiction collections.?Mary M. Hopf, Los Angeles Public Library
