Here are The Girl’s (age 10) thoughts on Meet Molly by Valerie Tripp, which tells the story of Molly, the World War II-era American Girl doll that she received for Christmas:

Meet Molly is a short book about a historical American Girl doll named Molly McIntire.  Molly’s story takes place in 1944 during World War II.  Her father has gone to fight in the war, and things are scarce.  When you read the book, you will understand Molly’s problems, learn about her family and family issues, and meet her friends.

Will trick or treating with her best friends turn into just a trick and start a war, or will everything go right?  How will Molly and her friends get back at her older brother, Ricky, for ruining their homemade costumes?  Molly and her brother’s fighting teach them about how wars start.

I really liked this book, and I recommend it to everyone.

Disclosure: I received Meet Molly as a gift. My mom is an an Amazon associate.
