    It is 1911 and you are a sixteen year old girl named Margaret Alice *Maggie* Gallagher from a poor family in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. You live with your mother, Clara Margaret Gallagher and father Liam Brady Gallagher and 4 siblings. Your mother is sick with consumption and can barely work and your father has a bad leg that prevents him from finding good work. You do your best to be useful and help the family, but you secretly long to escape Cedar Rapids, Iowa and seek adventure and excitement.

    Josephine Clara *Josie* Gallagher - 14
    William James *Will* Gallagher - 11
    Charles Henry *Charlie* Gallagher - 9
    Samuel George *Sam* Gallagher - 6

    Although your father thinks you are the most beautiful girl in the world, you don't think so. Your brunette hair is decent and your green eyes aren't too close together and your olive complexion never blemishes but still you feel there is nothing striking about you. But you are very good at drawing. You think you would make an excellent artist if only you had the money and the freedom to pursue it. Still, you and your immigrant best friend Luciana Emilia Valisari manage to save part of your weekly wages to put towards your dreams, of leaving Cedar Falls and becoming an artist.

    Both of you have been saving your money since you started working. A week before school starts in September 1911 you both finally save enough money to buy a steerage ticket on a ship headed for Europe. You and Luciana decided to forget finishing school and head to Paris where maybe you can finally realize your dreams of becoming an artist

    If you rolled Lower Class begin here

    It is 1911 and I am sixteen. My name is Lily Claire McCoy and I'm from a poor family in Cincinnati, Ohio. I live with my mother, Eleanor Margaret, my father, Liam Connor and my four younger siblings, Julia Florence, whose twelve, Ruby Josephine, whose nine, Charlotte Elizabeth, whose six and John Alexander, whose four. My mother has consumption and can rarely work and my father is injured and that prevents him from working a proper job. I try to help the family, being the oldest, but I secretly dream of escaping Ohio and seeking adventure somewhere exciting.

    My dad says I'm beautiful but of course, I disagree. My blonde hair and brown eyes are okay, but nothing special. I am, however, a very good singer and maybe one day I can use that. But for now, my best friend, Lia Amica Rossi and I manage to save part of our weekly wages to save for our dream of leaving this old city.

    In September, we have just enough money to buy a steerage ticket on a ship and head for Europe. We drop out of school and head to Paris, somewhere where our dreams can fly.

    You don 't give your mother a direct answer but promise that you will consider his offer. However, that Christmas [Bryson] proposes to you in front of everyone at the Christmas Ball. You are forced to accept in front of all those people, despite your reservations. Your mother is elated and immediately makes plans to travel to Europe with you and [Bryson] the next month to pick out the finest dress and most beautiful decor for your wedding before your engagement party in the spring. You can hardly wait...
