When her family moves to Miami Beach for the winter of 1974, 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.

The war just ended in Europe and seem far away- except that old Mr. Zavodsky 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!
