I have used this book as text for seventh grade language arts class when we are doing an author study of Katherine Paterson. It fits well with seventh grade geography as we talk about emmigration/immigration, child labor, and the "company store" ethics of corporations. It is a great follow-up for Lyddie (also by Paterson) because it shares the setting of mills in Lowell, Massachusetts.
