Fourteen-year-old Molly McKinney sees problems in her small town like wasteful spending and pollution, but nobody seems to be doing anything about it because the current mayor and his cronies are just too powerful.
Using a loophole in the town’s charter, Molly takes on the challenge of running against him, not fully realizing all the difficulties she’s going to encounter, but determined to see it through to the end. With the help of loyal friends, she pursues her dreams of changing the world for the better.
A Note from the Author
If you’re looking for a wholesome book for your middle-grade reader with some great lessons about civics, history, and life, then I hope you’ll purchase a copy of “Mayor Molly”. It’s the story of a young girl who sees all kinds of problems with her small town, but nobody does anything about it because they’re afraid of the current mayor and his powerful political machine.
This book is about courage to stand up for what’s right, and the importance of the support of family and friends when the going gets difficult. “Mayor Molly” is heartfelt, funny, and even has a little romance. It also has a surprise ending that young readers will love. I hope they enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it!
All the best,
"Great book to encourage young people that they can make a difference. Cameron Kent is a great author! All his books are great!"
