Narrator Jesse Vilinsky chronicles the tragedy of the Great Molasses Flood of 1919 in a passionate yet reverent voice. The story follows 12-year-old Carmen, who has immigrated to Boston from Italy with her papa. She and her friends often play near the molasses tank in town until the day it explodes, flooding her neighborhood. Vilinsky easily transitions to the youthful voices of Carmen and her friends, who walk listeners through the events of the catastrophic day. After the story comes to a close, the audiobook includes more about the disaster and the author's research. Listeners will be drawn into the fast-paced events of that horrific day.
