London, 1913. Eleven-year-old Christine Sedgwick believes that a
girl's place is at home, sewing, drawing and putting up with beastly
big brothers. Mary Forrest believes that a girl's place is wherever
she wants it to be.


When Christine and Mary cross paths outside the suffragette headquarters
in Kingsway, they instantly become friends and begin writing
to each other. Through their letters, the girls make sense of
the mayhem around them, from suffragettes smashing windows, to the
arrest of Emmeline Pankhurst, the introduction of the Cat and
Mouse Act to the fateful Epsom Derby. As the events of the year unfold
Christine's opinions begins to change...


But when Christine's cousin Jane sneaks out the house one night and
burns down the booth in Regents Park, the girls realise the real
cost of being a suffragette. How can Christine and Mary stop Jane
from getting into trouble? And why are women going to such lengths
to have their voices heard?
