    4. The name of the book is “Midnight in the Lonesome Hollow.” The book was written by Kathleen Ernst. There is no illustrator. The main character is Kit Kittredge, an American Girl who lives during the Great Depression. In the beginning, Kit visits Fern and Johnny, who live with their Grandma. Their mom died. Fern tells Kit about something that is worrying her: Why was Harlan, Fern’s brother, sneaking out at night? One of Kit’s thoughts was he working with moonshiners, which he had promised [...]

    5. Surprisingly, this mystery actually ties in with one of Kit's short stories. But all you need to know is explained in the first chapter. This is probably the closest that the American Girls will get to exploring Appalachia, which is kind of a shame. It seemed like it did a fairly good job of it, though.

    6. This was pretty well done - there is a bit of a mystery, but it's also a nice picture of what life was like in the Appalachian mountains during the depression. As usual with American Girl, heavily seeded with a nice 'it's fun to be helpful' message.

    7. This is probably my favorite book out of the Kit Mystery books. It has an awesome plot, and I would never have guessed who had been ruining the trip for Kit and Aunt Millie. I'd definitely recommend it.

    8. Not my favorite of the AG mysteries but still fun to read with my 8 year old. Some of the sentence structure and vocabulary is at a higher reading level than my daughter is at, and the Kentucky turns of phrase don't help much either. Nice book but we're moving onto another (easier) series.

    9. My 2nd Grade daughter and I love sharing these American Girl mysteries together. This one was a lot of fun and my daughter and I enjoyed talking about the setting together.

    10. Mystery and mountain basket craft appreciation combined to make this a winner. Kits experiences in Kentucky paralleled much we have experienced in North Caroline and Tennessee.

    11. Harkening back to Nancy Drew, this American Girl mystery was cute (even though I had it solved half-way through--HA!).

    12. l loved that this tied to "Aunt Millie Rides Again," from the extended set of short stories. This is a whole new environment for Kit, and a really nice read.
