Inspired by the real-life relationship between future movie star Louise Brooks and the woman who chaperoned her to New York City for a summer, this is the story of an unlikely friendship between two women who couldn't be more differentand how it changes both their lives.In the summer of 1922, only a few years before she became a famous actress of the silent screen and an icon for her generation, fifteen-year-old Louise Brooks left Wichita to make it big in New York. Much to her annoyance, she was accompanied by a thirty-six-year-old chaperone who was neither mother nor friend. Little is known about the real chaperone, but Laura Moriarty imagines her as Cora Carlisle, a complicated but traditional woman with her own reason for making the trip. Of course, Cora has no idea what she's in for: young Louise, already stunningly beautiful and sporting her black bob with bangs, was known for her arrogance, her lack of respect..
