A glimpse into a home for wayward girls in 1910 New York

A compelling story of two sisters who just want to have fun and not think of having to be and do as their parents wish come into some dire consequences. As one believes the other has been sent to a workhouse she gets herself committed to save her sister. But she soon finds out that she has made a terrible mistake and must learn to rely on a strength and courage she never knew she had. The reader gets to see what "reforming" looked like in a home for girls and the torment they experienced.
