    Precocious 17-year-old Bab, with a sizeable sense of the romantic and an over-developed sense of the dramatic, shares how these traits get her into continuous scrapes via school themes, journals, and articles meant for publication. Managing an allowance is easy - isn't buying a car to save on shoe repair fiscally responsible? Is the family's butler a spy for Germany? Set against the backdrop of the first World War, these humorous tales highlight how little has changed in the past century with regard to a young girl's finding her place in the world.

    "The Window at the White Cat" (1910) is a detective novel by Mary Roberts Rinehart. Excerpt from the book: "In my criminal work anything that wears skirts is a lady, until the law proves her otherwise. From the frayed and slovenly petticoats of the woman who owns a poultry stand in the market and who has grown wealthy by selling chickens at twelve ounces to the pound, or the silk sweep of Mamie Tracy, whose diamonds have been stolen down on the avenue - all the wearers are ladies, and as such announced by Hawes. In fact, he carries it to excess.
