While this is a short book - it is a very important one. At the time of this writing, there were numerous reasons why women could be committed to places like Blackwells Island. Nellie Bly took on a dangerous mission in trying to find out how the mentally ill (and sometimes not mentally ill) of the Island were treated. What Nellie found was the abuse of those who needed the most help. Thanks to Nellie's bravery massive changes were made to the way the mentally ill were taken care of.
