Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
During a stay at Grammy and Granpa?s farm in the summer of 1944, Molly spends time with her friend Anna Schulz, the daughter of German immigrants. When Aunt Eleanor, now a WASP pilot, stops for a visit, a security check uncovers anti-American propaganda stashed aboard her plane. The FBI interrogates Eleanor but quickly zeroes in on another suspect - Anna?s 17-year-old brother Max. Molly and Anna look for the real traitor. With lots of daring and a little luck, the girls manage to finger the culprit - but they discover that that may not be enough to save Max. Molly realizes that wartime, even on the home front, changes friends and family forever. Includes a full-color "Loking Back" historical essay. Paperbacks also include a tear-off postcard.
