Writer Emily Layden's memories of growing up in Saratoga are fond ones.
A cousin and an uncle were also writers. However, she would have to spend some time in the classroom as a teacher before she could tell her story.
It was as an English teacher at Albany Academy and Emma Willard where she experienced the environment of a boarding school.
Now her book "All Girls" has been released. It is garnering praise from the New York Times among others, and is set at a boarding school where a mystery surrounding a case of abuse unfolds.
