American Girls : Julie & Molly

Title: Meet Julie
Author: Megan McDonald
Rating: 3/5

Julie Albright doesn't want to move away from her San Francisco neighborhood near Chinatown, even if their new apartment is just a few miles away. Moving means leaving her best friend, Ivy, and her pet rabbit, Nutmeg. Worst of all, it means leaving Dad, now that her parents are divorced. Julie tries to make the best of it by joining the school's basketball team, but the coach won't allow girls to play. She learns that it's up to her to make positive changes in her new school--and her new life.

My Review:
I didn't like this book as much as the others, but the story was good. She just wanted to be an equal and play basketball. :)

Title: Meet Molly
Author: Valerie Tripp
Rating: 4/5

The story of Molly Mcintire is set in the year 1944, at the time of the WW ll. Molly is an average girl living on the homefront during the war. Her father is away fighting, and Molly misses him very much. At home, Molly struggles to get along with her brother, and gets into some mischief with her friends. Being the first book in the series of the American Girl Molly series. Recommended for ages 7+. Wonderful historical fiction, and a great entertainment and learning source for young children.

I just Loved this Family!
