About the book:
Life in a 1905 Nevada boomtown is tough; for thirteen-year-old orphan Kit Donovan, it’s downright impossible. Especially when she’s tasked with avenging her father’s murder and revealing the dangerous practices taking place at a local mine. Kit’s quest for justice leads her to dress like a boy so she can infiltrate the mine and expose the corruption by writing about it for the local newspaper – all while keeping her promise to her mother to act like a proper lady.
