From the jacket
Jobs were scarce in Poplar City. Ann Redfern had ideas -- many of her friends had talent, unused, apparently unwanted talent. With Ann as their leader, and with the reluctant aid of Mr. Kildare, owner of the Poplar City Star, the young people pooled their abilities and instituted a personal service organization. They had to work well and work fast, for Mr. Kildare gave them but a month to prove the success of their venture.
On a cooperative basis they ran a day nursery, washed windows, walked dogs; in fact, they under-took any job offered them -- and there were some very strange jobs. The group faced some strenuous opposition, and they had difficulties among themselves, but eventually they established the House of Tomorrow.
