When Cora Kimball got her new auto for her birthday she had no idea what adventures would start for her and brother Jack. Where did Ed's money and bonds disappear? Were they misplaced or were they stolen and lost forever.
Did the conceited Sid Wilcox have something to do with the missing money, with the help of Ida Giles? And what did the obnoxious Lem Gildy have to do with it all?
Cora and her friends experience mystery and adventure as The Motor Girls.
