Chicago, 1871

(Book #4 of Survival!)

Can two kids survive the flames of the great Chicago Fire of 1871? Find out in this riveting historical fiction, part of the Survivor series.

Nate Copper and his best friend Ryan love to sneak out at night to watch firefighters battle the blazes that have plagued Chicago all through the dry, windy summer of 1871.

Wealthy Julie Flynn, suffocated by her overprotective parents, can’t imagine adventures like Nate’s—and he’s definitely not a boy she would ever be friends with.

But fate and fire throw Nate and Julie together on the dark and dangerous streets of Chicago, and in the chaos of the crowds, Julie is kidnapped. Nate has to try to figure out a way to free her before the wind-driven flames spreading across the city cut off their only chance of escape. Will Nate and Julie be able to survive?
