"Set in Victorian New York in the year 1871, as a crowded, sweltering summer of riots and poverty comes to a close, 12-year-old Moth's journey is just beginning. Sold away by her mother, Moth becomes a pickpocket on the streets of the Lower East Side and becomes involved in a world of danger and violence. THE VIRGIN CURE is a tale of secrets and truths, of dark myths and magic of the heart - of one woman's fight to be heard, and one girl's desire to be loved."--Publisher.

I enjoyed the historical look at New York. Ami McKay portrayed the city, its attitudes and its society & standards really well.
However, I found the characters rather 2-dimensional. They seemed like wooden puppets that pushed the story along but brought no warmth or depth with them.
