Rate this:
If you were a 12-year-old mill worker in the Victorian era, you'd probably live in some dirty, crowded cellar and work in a hot, stuffy factory more than 13.5 hours a day. But things could be worse. You could get hurt on the job and lose a finger. Or you could be burned in a mill fire and lose your life!

Another excellent book from the "You Wouldn't Want" crew. This one looks at the life of a Victorian Mill Worker, mostly children of that variety. The hours, the horrible pay, the deplorable working conditions. Filled with all the gruesome bits that make these books such a treat, it will be popular with the reluctant readers you know.
