Annotation:
After her father abandons his failing farm, ten-year-old Lyddie and her younger brother must leave the family to try to earn money to help pay their father's debts. After a stint at a tavern, Lyddie ends up working in a cloth factory, where a fellow worker introduces her to books. Determined to make a better life for herself, Lyddie immerses herself in reading, and when she learns that there is no home left to go to, decides she will use her new knowledge to help her go to college.
Author Bio
Katherine Paterson
Born to German-American missionary parents, Katherine Womeldorf moved frequently during her childhood. As an adult, she followed in her parents' footsteps and served as a missionary in Japan. She received a fellowship to study at Union Theological Seminary where she met her future husband, John Paterson, a Presbyterian minister. Her 1975 book, THE MASTER PUPPETEER, won the National Book Award. She wrote one of her best-known books, THE BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA, in response to the death of her son's best friend. It won the Newbery Medal in 1978. In 1981 she won her second Newbery Medal, this time for JACOB HAVE I LOVED.

Praise

(unknown)
"A superb story of grit, determination, and personal growth."

Kirkus Reviews
"Deftly plotted and rich in incident, a well-researched picture of the period -- and a remarkable portrait of an untutored but intelligent young woman making her way against fierce odds."
