Those who have read this book, including myself agree that the main character Lyddie is a very intresting and hard-working girl. We have also come to a conclusion that most children in grades 5-8 enjoy this story the most, of all wo read it. I believe that anyone who has worked very hard before can easily relate to how Lyddie feels during most of this book. I am quite sure that all who will read this outstanding story would award at least four stars, but I give it five, because all of it was possible to happen, and it takes place in the 1840s, during the Industrial Revolution. Most people have not experienced noise as loud as the looms Lyddie must try to run. Despite this and and many other problems that I dare not give away, she persists following her dreams to earn the money needed to pay off the debts of the farm that she and her family live on.

    ???

    The book is great, but seriously, do they have to have such a grim blurb?

    Okay, but not great

    I thought this book was okay, but not great! It was boring! We had to read it for challenge reading and I hated it and so did the other kids!

    I thought that Lyddie was an interesting book , but it didn't really catch my interest in the beginning. Once I read some more, there were no real surprises or cliffhangers. Overall, it was well written, but it wasn't an interesting way of going about the topic.
