Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801044707, Paperback)Intriguing mysteries and fascinating characters abound in these compelling stories set during World War II. Girls ages 8-12 will be delighted as Jeanmarie, with a keen mind and a big heart, recruits her friends at the Apple Valley Orphanage to investigate some strange occurrences. The girls find more trouble than they bargained for as they discover that even their small New York orphanage may be hiding spies and unwelcome stowaways.
In Jeanmarie and the FBI, the orphans' curiosity gets the best of them. Friendships grow as the orphans work together to uncover a World War II spy and find themselves kidnapped with little hope of escape. Jeanmarie and her friends discover that people aren't always who they seem to be-and that God is the only one who can protect them.
In Jeanmarie and the Runaways, the orphans learn a real-life social studies lesson. When Jeanmarie finds orphaned migrant kids Juan and Serena, she's determined to help them hide from the evil Don Carlos. But when her plan backfires, Jeanmarie's last hope is telling the truth. The orphans learn the hard way that honesty is always the best policy.
