Children's Literature
It is the year 1944 and ten year old Molly McIntire is enjoying a summer vacation on a farm that belongs to her grandparents. Molly and her friend Anna Schultz do everything together. They have a grand time swimming, eating ice cream and sharing homemade cookies. But when the FBI pays a visit to the Schultz farm everything begins to change in a most frightening way. Anna's older brother Max is arrested by the FBI. He is accused of hiding anti-American leaflets in a P-51 fighter plane that Molly's aunt is flying to Texas. Molly determinedly sets out to discover who is responsible for hiding the leaflets.
