* In Molly's last Literature/AmericanGirl book, she's obsessed with curling her hair so she'll be more likely to get picked for the lead role in a patriotic dance for her tap class. After trying various increasingly uncomfortable methods, she resorts to one that involves sleeping with soaking-wet hair, which causes her to catch a cold and not be able to perform at all. The upside is that she's the only one home when her father comes back from the war.

** Suntans are also an example of how times and cultures can change so drastically over time; before the Industrial Revolution, suntans were seen as ugly and a sign that one was poor, being forced to work out in the sun all day. Nowadays, with the large majority of people working indoors, often in front of a computer, a suntan is seen as sttractive, as it meant you were wealthy enough to leave your job sometimes and be in the sun.
