    I didn t enjoy this one so much I did so want to learnabout Workhouses back in the day, I don t know too much except what I ve read and seen from the likes of Oliver Twist and Annie I thought I would get a muchrealistic version of events, despite the fact that the My Story series are based on fictional characters, set in historical times to give us an in depth version of events I ve read a lot of books from these series, with protagonists that were much younger than Edith was in I didn t enjoy this one so much I did so want to learnabout Workhouses back in the day, I don t know too much except what I ve read and seen from the likes of Oliver Twist and Annie I thought I would get a muchrealistic version of events, despite the fact that the My Story series are based on fictional characters, set in historical times to give us an in depth version of events I ve read a lot of books from these series, with protagonists that were much younger than Edith was in this book, who is sixteen, and yet Edith struck me as such a child in the way she writes and portrays herself and the events around her I could not get into the story because I could not relate to the character in any way I did not like the way it was written, and the storyline, with Rosie s involvement, was frustrating at most what with the singing and theatre stuff that was added in there I think if the story was told from the mother s perspective, it would ve been a lotinteresting for me Or at least, if the writing was a littlemature given that she is sixteen years old, I might have enjoyed it a little

    3.5 starsI think this is the first My Story book I ve read there are about a billion of them, as far as I can tell, covering most major Western historical events and it was pretty good There was a huge lack of tension, plot twists, bait and switch or anything to make it a real page turner, but it was well written and the historical aspects were really interesting and kind of horrific

    This was written as a children s educational guide to workhouse conditions in 19th Century As well as being informative it tells a good story which I found very engaging.

  4. Sally Sally says:

    Interesting story, though it could have been much better than it was, given the subject matter Edith was not in the workhouse herself, actually, merely a visitor made it a little different to how these stories usually run Sadly, the girl in the workhouse that we did meet, Rosie, was simply not likeable enough for me to care much about her fate.

  6. Olivia Olivia says:

    This book was really good and makes you respect how it was back in those times.

  7. Azee Azee says:

    It was interesting to read about the workhouses Though, it would have been so much better if the story was told from Rosie s perspective, instead of Edith s Edith was a visitor to the workhouse, but Rosie was the one who actually lived there and caused all the mischief Would have been interesting to read about her thoughts.
