When her family moves to Miami Beach in the winter of 1947, Sally is excited and nervous at the same time. It will be a new adventure, but how often will she see her father, who has to stay in New Jersey to work? What will school be like in Florida, and will she make new friends?
These worries don't stop Sally from creating her wonderful stories. One minute she's a famous movie star or a brilliant detective; the next she's found the Latin lover of her dreams- her classmate Peter Hornstein. And what about the Freedmans' neighbor, old Mr. Zavodsky, who looks suspiciously like Hitler in disguise?
There are so many things to worry and wonder about. But whatever happens, Sally's year in Miami Beach will be absolutely unforgettable.
