Summary
Molly wishes she and her friend Emily had an exciting volunteer job that really helped in the fight to win World War Two. Instead, they're magazine delivery girls at Oak Knoll Hospital. Soon, however, Molly and Emily start to suspect that something very un-patriotic is going on at Oak Knoll--and their snooping leads them deep into trouble!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Missing sugar doesn't seem like much of a premise for a mystery, but it works when set against the background of World War II, where rationing was a big part of the war effort. Braided and bespectacled American Girl Molly is not thrilled that doing her part means delivering magazines at a convalescent home. But Emily, a Brit living with Molly's family, has asked for that assignment because she can visit her recuperating aunt, and Molly has agreed to accompany her. Meanwhile, there is a mysterious shortage of flour and sugar in the town, just when it is needed for cookies the soldiers will be enjoying at the Jefferson train stop. The plot includes plenty of red herrings, but what may engage readers most is the sometimes-testy relationship between the girls coupled with the effect the war has on everyone. The fascinating back matter, which features posters and other photos, describes how rationing aided the war effort and some of the things kids missed.
