    Another book from my late grade school middle school years This was the first historical fiction book I read about Black people that wasn t about slavery It mentions slavery but it s not about slavery Instead it s about mill girls, the working class in the North during the industrial revolution and the racism Zellie faced she wasn t allowed to actually work in the mills I found it enthralling although I m not sure if I still own it I wish my sister had had a love of history like I did, I have so [...]

    Historical fiction about a young, free born black girl who is left alone and forced to work It is set during the time when girls are working in the textile mills and beginning to demand their own access to lands, banks, etc 1834 Not a really developed story as it is short and for children I m interested in looking at other books by this author for the kids.
