    1. I received a free copy of this book from O'Brien Press in exchange for an honest review.Mollie Carbery is 14 years old living in Dublin,Ireland in 1912 and when she realises her sister has a secret, she's like a dog with a bone. When Phylis tells Mollie she has joined the Irish suffragette movement, Mollie and her best friend Nora join in. But how can the two be proper suffragettes when they still have school, parents and annoying brothers to deal with?I really enjoyed this, as I knew I would. M [...]


    2. The Making of Mollie drops the feisty titular character into the radical political and social suffragette movement. I loved this book because the plot intertwines everyday life, school problems and feminism to create a realistic portrait of an Irish schoolgirl in the early twentieth century.It’s spring 1912, and 14-year-old Mollie Carberry lives in Drumcondra with her loving but distracted parents, her older sister Phyllis, her spoiled older brother Harry and her saintly little sister Julia. M [...]


    3. I bought this for my daughter and decided to read it as well. For some reason, it reminded me of reading Enid Blyton's The Naughtiest Girl series decades ago. It's an enjoyable read for 10-14-year-olds with the added bonus of educating readers about Irish history of 1912 focusing on the Votes for Women campaign. Considering women have been hidden from much of Irish history, this is a lovely way to introduce (if readers don't know of them already) women and men who were instrumental in feminism a [...]


    4. A cute story set in Dublin in 1912 as suffragettes are working for women’s rights. The author brings up relatable instances of injustice based off of gender discrimination for the two young girls—Nora and Mollie. For instance, they question why Harry (Mollie’s brother) gets away with certain things or why Phyllis (Mollie’s oldest sister) had to fight hard for permission to attend college. They come to the conclusion that this is all because men are given certain opportunities that they a [...]


    5. This epistolary novel focuses on the Suffragette movement in Ireland. Full of interesting historical facts and references to real historical heroines sprinkled with fictitious imaginings and feisty female characters. Amazed that there was no reference to when women did officially get a parliamentary vote (not in the historical note, nor the story, nor in the authors note).


    6. A nice little primer on the suffragette movement in Britain at the start of the 20th century. A sweet main character too. Maybe a teensy bit didactic. Interesting that it’s set in Ireland as I haven’t come across many novels set there.




    7. A perfect book for young readers! I love books written as letters and Mollie was a great storyteller! So inspiring and resonant for middle schoolers to be active in fighting for just causes!


    8. Very enjoyable, educational, fun book in which a fourteen-year-old Dublin girl in 1912 becomes politically aware. The lead character is amusingly verbose and enthusiastic about her likes and dislikes, like fourteen-year-old girls everywhere, and she becomes braver and more grown up as the book goes on.If you don't like swearing or violence and you'd like to learn a bit about what life was like for middle-class girls in Dublin in the early twentieth century, I recommend this book highly.
