A girls' school story, nicely pictured and containing a bevy of attractive misses. The girl thief turns over some money to Muriel, who is expelled as a result. Later the real thief confesses and everybody is forgiven. Boyd Marshall is the hero. A bright, well-pictured offering. - The Moving Picture World, September 5, 1914
