A story what life was like for children who worked in American factories (sweatshops) in early 1900s.....I enjoyed the format of this book----non-fiction essays between chapters of fiction...POWERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A very interesting read. Very sad. I am glad I was born in the mid 20th century.
Those poor children and women had a terrible life.

Why would this be classified as fiction?! Especially when there is an opportunity to teach students the truth of child labor? It should be re-classified as non-fiction. It makes me ache and feel rage that children were treated like this and are still abused this way - the FLDS making children work in the pecan tree farms and child labor in many other countries.

A true eye-opener! The book had history in it but there was a story wound into it. Really good! =)
