A Dance with Dragons

She accompanies Mance Rayder along with five other spearwives to Winterfell on a mission to free "Arya Stark" (the girl is actually Jeyne Poole) who is to wed Ramsay Snow. Mance disguises himsefl as "Abel", a singer and the six spearwives are his mother, wife, two daughters and two sisters who perform the instruments with him.[1] She is one of the daughters.

They play at the wedding feast and are responsible for the deaths of several Bolton men at arms. They later enlist the help of a reluctant and fearful Theon Greyjoy in freeing Jeyne.[2][3] The six spearwives disguised themselves as maids and accompanied by Greyjoy walk into Jeyne's room under the pretext of bringing hot water so Jeyne can have a bath. Squirrel switches clothes with Jeyne so Jeyne can leave disguised as a maid with the other five while Squirrel climbs down the tower once they are gone.[3] According to a letter Ramsay sent to Jon Snow on the Wall, Mance was captured and now wears the skins of the six women who accompanied him to Winterfell.[4]
