Technology is making Emily Allerton's world a better place. The twelve year old can hardly believe the inventions displayed at the Chicago World's Fair—unusual things like "automobiles." But soon, an economic depression throws many Americans out of work, leaving them homeless and hungry—and creating Emily's opportunity to make a difference. Especially for girls ages eight to twelve, this story shows young readers that they, too, can have an impact on their world. Perfect for recreational reading or homeschooling, Emily Makes a Difference is an enjoyable way to learn important lessons of faith and history.
