England. The girl from England is not as Molly expected though, Molly expected her to have to look exactly like Princess Elizabeth, but she has red hair down to her shoulders and that looks nothing like her. Molly's birthday is coming up and so is Emily's, her mom thinks that it would be great if Molly and Emily could have a birthday party combined together, but Molly feels like Emily's taking over her birthday party. How will it turn out? I think this book is okay because it doesn't really seem to have a big enough problem as I think it should, but I like that Molly has to deal with Emily taking over her birthday party and criticizing her on whatever she thinks about England. I think this is a great book if you want to learn about the World War II because it says a lot about important facts in the book and it also has facts about World War II in the back.
