It's 1895 in New York City. Hard times have hit, and life isn't going to get better any time soon. Almost thirteen-year-old Chipper Carey is running with the Midnight Rats just to survive. Fortunately, fate steps in and introduces him to Miss Sibley, who, like Ma, believes he's meant for something better than the Midnight Rats.
