Mary Rose was proud to be named after her aunt, because her aunt had been a heroine, saving the lives of everyone in the apartment building—before dying in the fire. But not everyone thought the first Mary Rose was a heroine. Young Mary Rose overheard her uncle’s remembrance of the events of that dramatic day—and they weren’t at all what she expected.

Juvenile fiction by Marilyn Sachs; originally published by Doubleday
