Sixteen-year-old Essie Rosenfeld of Delancey Street is working at the Triangle Waist Company when she meets the newest employee, Harriet Abbott, a seemingly well-educated, upper-crust young woman with a big secret. Essie, harboring a few secrets of her own, is drawn to the mysterious new girl, but their friendship will be tested as both go to great lengths to conceal the painful truth about themselves-and as a series of disasters tests Essie's fortitude and compassion. A 2010 Sydney Taylor Honor Book.
