Pequena biografia
Margaret Peterson Haddix (born April 9, 1964) is an American writer known best for the two children's series, Shadow Children (1998–2006) and The Missing (2008–2015). She also wrote the tenth volume in The 39 Clues, published by Scholastic.

Haddix grew up on a farm about halfway between two small towns: Washington Court House, Ohio, and Sabina, Ohio. Her family was predominantly farmers and she grew up in a family of voracious readers. Some of her favorite books growing up included E.L. Konigsburg books, Harriet the Spy, Anne of Green Gables, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Anne Frank, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, and The Little Princess.

She graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with degrees in English/journalism, English/Creative writing, and History. While in college, Haddix worked a series of jobs. She was an assistant cook at a 4-H camp, but almost every other job has been related to writing. During college, she worked on the school newspaper and had summer internships at newspapers in Urbana, Ohio; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Indianapolis, Indiana.

Haddix chose to pursue fiction writing after her husband, Doug, became a news reporter, because she did not want to be his employee. Her previous work as a reporter inspired her to write fiction. After documenting a wide variety of topics, she wanted to create her own plots and characters. Haddix experienced a long period of having her writing rejected by publishers before her first two books were accepted in 1995 and 1996. Her first book was Running Out of Time, published when Haddix was pregnant with her second child, and her first child was one and a half years old. Her second book, Don't You Dare Read This, Mrs. Dunphrey, followed shortly after. The Summer of Broken Things, written in 2018, is Haddix’s most recently published stand-alone book.

Haddix has written more than 30 books for children and teenagers, including Running Out of Time, Don't You Dare Read This, Mrs. Dunphrey, Leaving Fishers, Just Ella, Turnabout, Takeoffs and Landings, The Girl with 500 Middle Names, Because of Anya, Escape from Memory, Say What?, The House on the Gulf, Double Identity, Dexter the Tough, Uprising, Palace of Mirrors, Claim to Fame, The Always War, Game Changer, the Shadow Children series, and the Missing series. She also wrote Into the Gauntlet, book 10 in The 39 Clues series. Her books have made New York Times Best Seller lists and American Library Association (ALA) annual book lists and they have won the International Reading Association's Children's Book Award and more than a dozen state reader's choice awards.

The New York Times’ best-selling author currently lives in Columbus, Ohio with her husband, Doug, and their two children, Meredith and Connor.

Haddix has received the International Reading Association Children's Book Award, Champions league, some ALA listings on Best Books for Young Adults and Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers, The National Kids Award, and readers' choice lists in more than 29 states.

Resenhas

Initially, I thought this would be another time-travel book. The title "Running out of Time" gave me the notion of either traveling around in the Time Hollows or whatever they're called in The Missing series.

It was not that at all. That was a pleasant surprise. The title is meant in its normal way- if the main character doesn't hurry, she might fail in her task.

Rather than time travel, the main premise is that of a girl whose life is not, and never has been, what she thought it was. She needs to leave the only life she's ever known and enter a shocking new world, risking all she has to rescue the society she knows and loves.… (mais)

One thing I want to say right now (I'll probably add more later) is how awesome Haddix's portrayal of young children is. SHE GETS IT. She knows the unsophisticated terms in which little kids think about danger. I remember when I was little and I got scared, I would think, "If I lay perfectly still, the bad guys will think I'm asleep and nothing will happen." Unrealistic, but accurate. And she was able to write several pages where all the events were told as they were being thought about in a small boy's head. #reallywelldone… (mais)

Full review will come later, because I have THOUGHTS.

For now: European Spanish tripped me up until, late in the book, a "vuestras" finally reminded me why some of the usage was unfamiliar to me.

Also, the afterword states that this is MPH's favorite book cover of hers, and I definitely agree

Uprising by Margaret Peterson Haddix is a fictionalized account of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, The story has three main characters Bella, Yetta and Jane and through their eyes we are able to explore the general strike that occurred the previous year to the fire, what the workers were fighting for and why they weren’t granted their demands. The story also touches on class privilege, immigration, feminism and still manages to be compelling and interesting.

Two of the main characters, Bella and Yetta were employed at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory while the third, Jane, was a runaway daughter of a wealthy businessman. She lived with Bella and Yetta and worked as the governess to the two daughters of one of the owners of the factory. On the day of the fire, March 25, 1911, Bella and Yetta are at work and Jane has brought her charges to visit their father at work. The fire begins on the 8th floor where Yetta works and quickly spreads to the 9th and 10th floors where Bella and Jane are. From the beginning of the book, you are informed that only one of three friends will survive.

One of the worst workplace disasters in history, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire claimed the lives of 146 workers. Although there was no safety plans, the fire escape collapsed, and exit stairways were locked, the owners were granted a “no-fault” insurance claim of more than sixty thousand dollars which enabled them to reopen their factory and once again exploit young immigrant girls. Recognized unions and workplace reforms took another decade to be put in place. I found Uprising to be a very good read. The author was able to describe the horrific conditions of the workplace as well as giving the reader a clear picture of how the immigrant workforce lived in the early 20th century.
