    2. It is August 1944. America is involved in WWII.

    3. Wasn't that much of a mystery, but I really enjoyed reading it. There was a lot to learn, especially if you are actually target age.

    4. This book takes place during a war and so a lot of people are poor and are unemployed. The main characters are Molly who visits her grandparents in the summer, Max who works at an airport and Anna Molly's best friend and Max's brother. At the very beginning Molly's favorite Aunt Eleanor drops by for a visit. Eleanor is a pilot and lands at the airfield that Max works at. Later Molly AND Anna are devastated.

    5. A Spy on the Home FrontThe year is 1944 and Molly is visiting her grandparents who happen to be German. This establishes one theme of the story, and that is what happened to some of the people of German ancestry in WWII in the U.S. Although the vast majority of people sent to internment camps in the U.S. were people of Japanese ancestry, some were sent who were German or Italian. In this Molly has a friend who also is from a German family and another family they know has already been sent to a c [...]

    6. Molly is enjoying a visit to Grammy and Granpa's peaceful farm in the summer of 1944. But when Aunt Eleanor, an army pilot, flies in for a visit, she unknowingly brings trouble - and a frightening mystery.Molly looks for clues, but she discovers something else that even on the home front, war time changes friends and family forever.Great story! The mystery starts right up and is another great one to read. Molly does solve the mystery but there's also a little danger involved with her sleuthing. [...]

    7. Really loved this one - a little talked about era in American history where we didn't always treat our own citizens very well. Looking at the German citizens in this story I learned (or relearned something I'd forgotten) that they too had been put in internment camps during WWII. Molly is brave and adventurous, not hesitating to break the rules (should I be happy about this as a parent?) to help her friends during troubling times. The lack of security at the airfield made me cringe, but honestly [...]

    8. My daughter was going to return the book to her cousin but I thought I'd read it so she & I could talk about it. And I found I really enjoyed it! I like reading historical fiction and the writing was very descriptive & easy to visualize. And was a very easy read. As a mother, I liked the vocabulary definitions & German pronunciation guide.My daughter was impressed I finished so quickly and has decided she wanted to read it again, or finish it- she wasn't clear with me. But I look for [...]

    9. I have read a lot of American Girl books, especially when I was little. But my favorite was always Molly.This book was so interesting. I learned new things about WWII and I now want to know more about what happened.This really is one of the only great American Girl books I've read compared to Meet Julie.

    10. very cool book! I really liked this mystery book! I know that it is a very organized book! every event happened a very precise order! Alison Hart made a very good book. At first I used to not read the American Girl Mysteries, but one day I went like: why, why, why don't I read these kind of books just for fun! Now I know that they are very good books!

    11. American Girl Book Club gave this one 4.8 stars. They all liked Molly's sense of adventure, and the fact that she worked so hard to solve the mystery and help her friend. However, they had a hard time reconciling the fact that the Schultz family would be treated so badly just because they were German.

    12. I always love the originally Molly books from American Girl, I am less enthused about this mystery. The pacing of the story off and though it did give some interesting information about anti-war activity at the time as well as the penalties, it didn't save the story.

    13. My favorite thing about American Girl Mysteries is that because they're so short you don't have time to see the outcome before it happens; it always takes me by surprise. I love WWII so Molly's stories are my favorite. This one was right on par.

    14. No matter your age war is not good. Family and friends change and not always for the good. Molly shows that no matter where a person is from one can always be friends with them

    15. when molly notices that there is sabatoge on the homefront. but a inocent man is being blamed. She must find out the guilty before it's too late.

    16. Could not stop reading once we got to the last 4 chapters--read them in one night, over 1-1/2 hours of reading!

    17. Love Molly. Love longer mysteries books about her. Learned something about internment in America during World War II. Recommended!

    18. cool book found it in my local library and for those people who know me in the the local library means the one with mrs. holstun

    19. A nice Molly mystery that really builds off the events in Molly's short stories. This also offers a peak at the war from a different side - targeted Americans.

    20. I think you have to be a molly or WWII fan because i didn't enjoy it as much as i though i would. I was disappointed there was no emily in the book as well
