What Girls Are Good For Publisher's summary

From international best-selling author David Blixt: Nellie Bly has the story of a lifetime. But will she survive to tell it?

Enraged by a sexist article in the Pittsburgh Dispatch, Elizabeth Cochrane pens a furious letter to the editor that results in a job offer! Saddled with the name Nellie Bly, she struggles against the male-dominated newspaper industry to report what no one else will—stories of women.

Chased out of Mexico for revealing government corruption, her romantic advances rejected by a married colleague, Bly can break into New York’s Newspaper Row if she can nab a major scoop—life inside a madhouse! Feigning madness, she is committed to the Insane Asylum on Blackwell’s Island, where matters are far worse than she dreamed. Stripped, drugged, beaten, she must endure a week of terror, reliving the darkest days of her childhood. She must escape to tell the world her story. But at the end of a week, no rescue comes, and she fears she may be trapped forever....

Ripped from the true events of Nellie Bly’s life and reporting comes a novel of rage, determination, and triumph, all in the frame of a tiny Pennsylvania spitfire who refused to let the world change her, and changed the world instead.
