Rebecca Tulsa, a indecisive girl with quite a skill with writing. Exceptionally bright, but when under pressure she cracks. Either by yelling or freezing up. Ernie, her little brother who is too innocent for the brutal streets of New York. Timothy Denton, her best friend since diapers. Which means he can be overprotective at times. Jack Kelly, a newsie that makes an unexpected friend. Davey Jacobs, the sweet boy with manners that falls quickly. Crutchie, the nicest boy in all of New York. Katherine Plumber, A reporter who is always in the right place at the right time. In 1899, The Newsboy's Strike rocked New York City. All of these people are involved. Either, by accident or fate, or to fight for what they believe. Many want to make a change. One has finally found a group of people to be close to and is not going to lose them. One maybe didn't even care until he was dragged down in the mess by the people he cares about.
