Molly is a genu-ine heroine in this book, always rescuing somebody (often herself), full of kindness, and hilariously astute and clever. She's a role model for anyone, but I especially think girls. The stories mix big words (for an 8 year old reader) with little ones, along with grammar and slang that I assume is Appalachian. This is really fun to read, for kids and the grownups too.
