      This is a very interesting book, aimed at the middle school age range. A girl decides to research Molly PItcher for a school assignment that is also a competition. The author takes us through all the stages of her research, looking for print information, talking with an expert, looking for primary sources. Molly Pitcher is not a straightforward research topic, we discover along with the main character. It's a mystery along with a history lesson and insight into how historians work.
