I thought it was a really good book.The only thing I didn't like was how it ended.It keeps you guessing though.I suggest many young adults to read it.

Reader reviewed by Megan

this was a pretty good book. id actually give it a three and a half, but there's no halves!! lol. i read it last month as one of those class books everyone read. i liked the character Lyddie. she's got spunk and she's hardworking. she's a good role model. i liked how she helped that new girl. it was an interesting book, but there were a lot of time that it bored me because it's just not a book that I would pick out to read on my own. sometimes it felt like it was going too slow!!

I just finished reading Lyddie by Katherine Paterson for a youth services course in library science. This is the first book I've read in years that I've not wanted to put down - nor did I want it to end! This is a historical novel about three years in the life of Lyddie, a 13 year old girl in New England, between 1843 and 1846. She is a strong and determined heroine who discovers a new life through reading. Along the way she suffers family hardships, faces her own morality when she encounters a runaway slave, is put in morally compromising positions and finds work as a mill girl in Lowell. The language is not only wonderful and challenging for younger readers; Paterson can really tell a story.
