Raised as a "tomboy" by her widowed father, attractive and vivacious Violet Mersereau (as Jacqueline "Jack" Channing) is sent by her grouchy aunts to a boarding school. Neither able to fit in with the girls nor follow the house rules, Ms. Mersereau runs away. She ends up working as a stenographer at the offices of "Ridgeway and Son". Naturally, Mersereau catches the eye of company son Sidney Mason (as Bob Ridgeway). Mersereau winds up being a valuable asset to Mr. Mason's business, defeating sneaky James O'Neill (as Albert Corey) and succumbing to the joys of womanhood.
This lost film starred popular 'teens star Mersereau in a child-like role. "Photoplay" (May 1917) wrote, "In the Universal play of this name she enacts the 'son' of a sportsman father, who has left her to two maiden aunts. The critic of the New York Telegraph, remarking her walk through Washington Square to the Hotel Brevoort, where she dined, questioned her undisputed passing of the traffic cop at Eighth street with a mop of indubitable girl's flying under her cap - and accounted for it by assuming that the policeman considered her one of the Square's free verse poets en route to breakfast."
