Stephen F. Mediciabout this book: What happens when a man is betrayed by the country and woman he loves most? In this thrilling mystery, the man strikes back at both.
All proceeds from the sale of "The Girls in Pleated Skirts" will be donated to the Fresh Air Fund.
In 1877, the Fresh Air Fund, an independent not-for-profit organization, was created with one simple mission – to allow children living in low-income communities to get away from hot, noisy city streets and enjoy free summer experiences in the country. When the Fresh Air Fund began, New York City was overflowing with children living in crowded tenements. Many of these youngsters were hit by a tuberculosis epidemic, and "fresh air" was considered a cure for respiratory ailments. Today, the Fresh Air Fund's tradition of caring provides children with a much-needed respite from the inner-city streets. Thousands of youngsters enjoy safe summer experiences with volunteer host families or attend one of five Fresh Air Fund camps in upstate New York.
