Product description

“Something terrible has happened. I can scarcely bring myself to write the words. I AM TO START AT THE MILL ON MONDAY!” Eliza has heard dreadful things about the factory mills that are sweeping across Britain, turning it into an industrial nation. The work is said to be hard, and the conditions atrocious. Now it is Eliza’s turn to find out the truth for herself. Will she still be Eliza – or just a pair of factory hands? A fascinating story-diary set in 1840s Manchester.

    I adore this book. It’s my one of my favorite books I’ve read. I think her friendship with Jack is really sweet. I think jack is my favorite character! I would recomend this book to girls over 8 years old. I’m hoping to read The Hunger next time.

    I adored this book, I was reading 24/7! I thought it was really interesting, as it was a completely new topic for me. What I love about this series is the personal touch. I also loved Eliza’s friendship with Jack, and how close they were because of Eliza’s late brother, William. I would have liked it to be longer because I wanted to hear more about her new life in the countryside. Overall, one of my favourite My Story books! I recommend it to ages 11+

    I found this book very moving. I loved how there was a diary entry from the 1840’s.My favourite character was Eliza, as she has simallar characteristics to myself. I would recomend this book for the ages 9+. Enjoy your reading!

    This Book Is Magnificent, to put it plainly!! As its written as a dirary it really puts life into perspective from the 1800’s and helps you understand. Will be very helpful for help on history homeworks e.t.c. and just for general pleasure. A very interesting book and should be read 11+ :) x

    I recomend this for history lovers. Other people that like more of an adventure, comedey, romance or any other genre may not like this book. i have got it but have not read it yet, although my sister has and so has my brother. my family like history. could help with history at school too. tnx!!! :)
