Publisher Description:

The Roaring 20s are in high gear, and so is skyscraper fever in New York City. People are fascinated by the plans to build the Empire State Buildingthe world's tallest building yet. Will you: Be an eager young assistant at the architecture firm Shreve, Lamb, and Harmon, the firm designing the Empire State Building? Join the project as a construction worker high atop the building as it rises above the city? Work as a water boy who carries water to the thirsty construction workers on the project? Experience situations taken from real life. YOU CHOOSE what you'll do next. The choices you make will either lead you and the project to successor to failure.

I loved these kinds of choose-your-own-adventure books when I was a kid and incorporating historical events and facts into the stories makes them even more entertaining. Each book focuses on a different event in history, but it's up to the reader to choose the point of view to take. The story will progress for a few pages and then the reader must make a decision about what course they want to take. Then, the reader turns to the page directed in the book and sees what happens based on the choice made. Choose whether to be a civilian, patriot or British soldier during the Battle of Bunker Hill, whether or not to rush for a lifeboat on the Titanic, what job to take as an Irish Immigrant, and much more. On average, each book has about 3 story paths, 35-45 choices, and 15 different endings. This series will help students see historical events in a new, real way and is just plain fun to read. Each book is about 112 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
