The Mad Girls of New York by Maya Rodale

The story that made Nellie Bly famous as a woman journalist in the late 1800s. Ambition and the hunger for a spot at The World Newspaper in New York City on the illusive Newspaper Row had Nellie (Elizabeth) go undercover and fool the medical staff into thinking she was insane and needed to be admitted to Blackwell's Insane Asylum with a "guarantee" that her editor would retrieve her after seven days. Nellie's tale of treatment or non-treatment of herself and the other patients of the asylum shocks the city and spins stories of other inmates, some of who are of the elite upper class of New York's social scene.

This book is based on the true story of Elizabeth Cochrane and how she made it to the big time in a huge city and her survival of a corrupt system. I loved this book! It's available on Libby and through inter-library loan. ~ Ashley
