In 1893, the streets of New York are teeming with life and excitement, but also many dangers. For 13-year-old Maks Geless, a newsboy, the chief of these dangers is Bruno, the leader of the Plug Ugly Gang, which is determined to take control of all of the newsies on the Lower East Side for its own nefarious purposes. Maks must also find a way to free his sister Emma from the city jail where she has been imprisoned for stealing a watch from the new luxury Waldorf Hotel. With the help of lawyer Bartleby Donck and the mysterious street urchin Willa, Maks turns detective to protect his family and himself.

En 1893, las calles de Nueva York están llenas de vida y emoción, pero también de peligros. Para Maks Geless, un repartidor de periódicos de 13 años, el peligro principal es Bruno, el líder de una banda de rufianes decidida a controlar todos los repartidores de periódicos en el Lower East Side para sus propios fines nefarios. Maks deberá conseguir también alguna manera de liberar a su hermana Emma de la cárcel en la que ha sido encarcelada por robar un reloj del Waldorf, un nuevo hotel de lujo. Con la ayuda del abogado Bartleby Donck y la misteriosa golfilla Willa, Maks se convierte en detective para proteger a su familia y a sí mismo.
