It’s set in a rural part of the southern peninsula of Michigan, on the shore of Lake Michigan, at an unspecified time right around the time it was published – 1938. The heroine is Cherry Hudson, youngest member and only daughter of the family that runs the local newspaper. She dreams of being a reporter, of writing feature articles and getting a “scoop” big enough to be sent to the wire services. Her best friend is Winnifred Lott, the almost comically tomboy daughter of the local Coast Guard station commander, who drives a convertible nicknamed the Gas Gull. Half the book “Win” spends driving Cherry around; the other half she’s pursuing the nautical half of the plot. The two girls’ families account for most of the rest of the named characters; add in a couple of classmates, and the cast is complete.--From http://www.slugsite.com/archives/1560.
