Description - Dear Molly, Dear Olive: Olive Spins a Tale (and It's a Doozy!) by ,Megan Atwood
When it comes to long-distance friendships, a delayed response or no response at all can lead to plenty of hurt feelings. Cross-country pen pals Molly and Olive find that out the hard way when an unanswered gift causes Olive to go a little crazy, spinning tales of trips to Paris and dinners with royalty in an effort to make Molly jealous. Readers can follow the wild ride themselves by reading the girls' correspondence and listening to their alternating first- person points-of-view.
