QWERTYUIOP Spells DANGER (historical novel, set in Chicago, 1907-1917
Barry Kritzberg, author
It is 1908, and Karin Wheeler, 18, has a job waiting for her (as a typewriter instructor) and a safe place to live in a women's residence in Chicago, near where the 1893 World's Fair took place. (What could go wrong? She thought of everything.) She finds herself, through close association with other girls in her club, gradually drawn in to more and more radical adventures.
