Read from April 24 to 25, 2010

A young reader novel, I chose to read because I have liked other books by this author. This book brought to life the conditions that factory women had to endure in the early turn of the century. Lyddie is trying to keep her family together and becomes a factory worker to earn the money to do so. In the end she must release her siblings so they can live better lives and realizes that there can be more for her out there in the world as well. Good historical fiction for girls.
