When Sally’s family moves to Miami Beach for the winter of 1947, she’s excited and nervous at the same time. What will school be like in Florida? Will she make any friends? Will she fit in so far away from home?

But none of this stops Sally from having the most amazing adventures. 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?

Sally’s life is a movie played inside her head, and Miami Beach is her best setting yet. If only she didn’t have so much to worry about.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine In this timeless yet quaint story of family life in the 1970s, Sally is excited but nervous about her family's move to Florida as her brother recuperates from a serious illness. Although she misses her father, who has stayed behind to work, she manages with her vivid imagination to find adventure and friendship in her new surroundings. Blume's short sentences and breathy, little girl tones convey Sally's innocence, but at times this arrested speech pattern creates a choppy reading. Blume's accents are right though as she takes us along as Sally learns a little about her family and how to create the life she wants for herself, at least in her imagination. W.L.S.
