Brave Emily (American Girl Collection Series)by Valerie Tripp, Keith Skeen, Susan McAliley, Renee Graef
Emily Bennett, a young English girl, has come to stay with Molly McIntire's family to escape the bombing of London during World War Two. Emily's parents sent her off with the reminder to be "a brave soldier for England," but Emily doesn't see how she can do that. Molly tries hard to make sweet, shy Emily feel at home. When Emily makes a big mistake and turns to Molly for help, Emily shows how truly brave she is—and both girls learn what friendship really means.
Emily is a third grader from London who has been sent to stay with her American friend, Molly, during World War II. Molly helps Emily overcome her shyness and find a way to aid people back home. This is a companion to the "Molly" books (American Girl), and, with its well-paced plot and likable characters, it's an interesting addition to that series. A concluding chapter includes photographs and anecdotes about English children during the period and expands on Emily's story. Lovers of the "American Girl" series can add an English lass to their list.
