In the book Restoring Harmony by Joelle Anthony, a young 16 year old girl is sent to retrieve her grandfather from the collapsed economy of the united states after her mother finds out that her grandmother might be dead. Molly lived in Canada for all of her life, working in the garden out side of her house. She is never the type to lead, but when she enters the United States illegally, she is forced to lead herself. Molly, an outstanding character has alot of integrity and determination to get her family back to Canada safe. Along the way she meets many new people, some good some bad. The United States is in a hard time, and with out the government in force, the organization takes over and controls everything from the amount of food people can buy, to the debts that people owe.. But with the help from her fiddle, she is able to pull through all of the trials and tribulations that the organization throws at her. And when all she can do to help herself and her family is run, she runs fast.
I Loved this book because Molly was relentless in what she did and the fact that she never gave up was incredible.       
Rating: 4 Better than most
