Lightning Strike

Available

Description

I was too angry, Mother said. But she was wrong. If you weren't fuming, you just weren't paying attention.

When every day is a struggle to survive ...When the rich and powerful hold all the cards ...Do you accept the way things are? Or do you fight to change them?

Eliza is angry. Angry that her family never seems to have enough. Angry that conditions at the factory where she and her sister work are so harsh. Angry that no one seems to care.

When Eliza speaks out, her words spark fury among the rest of the workers and the flame of rebellion is lit. But what next? Can one girl really inspire an uprising that will change her world?

Written by Carnegie Medal winner Tanya Landman, this story brings to life the match girls' strike of 1888 and is perfect for less-confident readers.
