I enjoyed listening to this novel/audiobook about a young woman forced to move out into the world and make her way in 1840s New England. The characters are somewhat overly simplistic but not ridiculously so, and the story itself is engaging. The novel also ended at the right time in that it stopped before I grew bored and at a point where I really wanted to know what happened next.

(This is a title from the Build Your Library Level 5 curriculum booklist.) ( )

PAINFUL! This book is like a colonoscopy. It's necessary. It provides needed information. You feel better for having made it through it. But, it is also unpleasant, tedious, and gives you a view of things you DON'T want to see but must see in order to grow. It was like watching a slow motion train wreck. Just when you think it can't get worse, along comes another car, this time with children spilling out the sides and being crushed all in glorious 4k slow motion! The book illustrates the horrible conditions that women endured in the mills of Lowell Massachusetts in the mid 1840's. The book covers Lyddie's slow decent into emotional desertification. By the time you get to the tiny ray of POSSIBLE hope at the end, the reader is emotionally exhausted or beginning to be as calloused as Lyddie herself.
I give it 4 stars because it is exceedingly accurate historically. I also give it high marks for being very well written. The book is immersive. This is why it is so difficult to get through. It literally immerses the reader in a living hell from which death or dismissal is the only escape. It is a very successful book that, though poignant at times, is a good read for young adults.
Teacher Supplement:
This would make a great book to highlight the WHY behind the women's suffrage movement, labor reform movement, or child labor reform movements. ( )

Lyddie is a well-written novel about a teenage farm girl who finds herself without means, home, or family at the height of the Industrial Revolution. Sent away by her mother to work off debts and faced with the loss of the family farm, Lyddie vows to make something of herself and return with her family to the only home she's ever known. Working first as a maid, she is soon lured to the textile mills of Lowell, Massachusetts, which hold the promise of independence and a steady income. In reality, factory life proves to be a soul-crushing experience, and Lyddie gradually awakens to the injustices imposed on her as a child, a female, and a laborer.

The book succeeds as historical fiction; we get a clear sense of time and place, the characters feel authentic to the setting, and the details seem right. Paterson captures the dreariness, discomfort, and exhaustion of working in an 19th century textile mill--the looms that require constant repair and correction, the infernal noise, the stifling air, the endless hours, the meager pay. We sense how trapped these girls feel as they discover how little of their income they get to take home after the mill deducts for room and board. We feel their frustration and anger at the factory system, which squeezes every drop of their energy for a subsistence wage and essentially blacklists anyone who seeks better working conditions elsewhere. And we understand their fear as they take the first risky steps toward correcting the abuses of the system.

Lyddie is a worthy if sober read. Young readers will feel good for having read it without necessarily enjoying the experience itself. There is precious little humor in the novel and no Dickensian sidekicks or villains to leaven the mood. (Lyddie's obsessive reading of Oliver Twist reminds us of what we're missing.) Instead, we get a down-to-earth portrait of a girl making her way in a hardscrabble world, learning from others, educating and advocating for herself, and finally charting a path to a better future. Lyddie herself is a remarkable character, a teenager of iron will and boundless fortitude who wins our awe and respect while being (for most contemporary readers) extremely difficult to relate to (this is not necessarily a criticism).

In the classroom, the book can be handily paired with historical texts for an interdisciplinary unit covering the Industrial Revolution, child labor, worker activism, various forms of slavery, or even the seeds of feminism. ( )
