For Molly McIntire, life seems full of change. It's 1944 and the world is at war. Her father is far away caring for wounded soldiers. Her mother is busy working for the Red Cross. And everyone in America is so serious and practical that glamorous Halloween costumes are hard to get. Molly's special hula skirt is a huge success--until Ricky, her pesty big brother, plays a mean trick. Molly and her friends are determined to get back at him. One mean trick leads to another until the fighting goes too far.
Molly is a lively, lovable dreamer growing up in 1944 who misses her father while he is away caring for wounded soldiers. World War Two turns her family upside down, for while her father is away, war threatens to break out on the McIntire's homefront, too. Part of the "American Girls" series.
