What is the summary for chapter 21 in Lyddie?
1 Answer | Add Yours
Lyddie’s chapter 21 is an important chapter in the book because it is a turning point for Lyddie. In the previous chapter, Lyddie has been helping new girls get accustomed to the factory life. She also stuck up for Brigid by dumping a bucket of water on her boss, Mr. Marsden. Mr. Marsden gets Lyddie fired by saying that she has a problem with moral turpitude. This basically means that she is immoral, but since Lyddie does not know what the word means she cannot defend herself. This is a turning point for Lyddie because when she is fired she makes it a point to better educate herself. Since she was not granted a certificate of honorable discharge, she cannot get another job at a mill.
