Meet Molly: an American girl
Rebecca Rubin is a lively nine-year-old girl growing up in a big Jewish family in New York in 1914. She dreams of becoming an actress, but her parents and grandparents have traditional ideas and don't think young ladies should perform. When Rebecca learns that her cousins in Russia are in great danger and must escape to America, she puts on a show to raise money--until her disapproving grandmother steps in. Unexpectedly, Rebecca finds another way to earn money. But for her plan to work, she'll have to keep it a secret. Includes an illustrated "Looking Back" essay about Jewish immigration and culture.

Review: Meet Molly: An American Girl (American Girls: Molly #1)User Review - Kelly - Goodreads
This book was written so well. It's the first of the American Girl books that I have read and I was pretty impressed. It was meaningful and not superficial at all, as I somewhat expected (to be honest.) I look forward to reading more and hopefully sharing these with my daughter someday! Read full review
