Having read a previous "My True Story" title I was quite keen to read this one and I'm pleased to say that it didn't let me down.

The reader is taken into the world of Dora Thewlis, a sixteen year old but not at all like sixteen year olds today. She has already been expected to leave school and is in work, 10 hour days, at the loom, along with her sisters.

This is the early 1900's and a very different time for women that I think most of us could imagine. it's also a time when women were fighting for the change that had already taken place in some countries such as New Zealand, the right to vote.

Sue Reid paints a very vivid picture of what Dora's life would have been like and why so many women wanted to fight for they believed was a basic right, a right that was being fought for right from the upper class of society to the poorer such as the Thewlis family.

Dora is a very likeable character and even though there is the difference in eras, I think she was still very easy to relate to. This would be a nice easy read for a younger audience, introducing them to what was a big political and social fight in a way that is easy to understand an relate to.

Big thumbs up from me. Thumbs Up
