In the early 20th century, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of radium-dial factories. And as the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave girls are embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of the era, and in a groundbreaking battle for workers' rights.


Written with a sparkling voice and breakneck pace, The Radium Girls fully illuminates the inspiring young women exposed to the "wonder" substance of radium, and their awe-inspiring strength in the face of almost impossible circumstances. Their courage and tenacity led to life-changing regulations, research into nuclear bombing, and ultimately saved hundreds of thousands of lives.
