-From the back cover...

It is 1947 and these are happy times for Sally J. Freedman and her family. They are a close and loving Jewish family--though not as orthodox as the Dnaiels, wh live in the next apartment. The Freedmans are spending the winter in Miami Beach because of her brother's health--but he's just fine now. Sally's dad (she calls him Doey-Bird) visits often from their home in New Jersey. Sally has learned not to hate her new school, has made new friends, and is interested in boys. Mom worries too much, and her brother keeps to himself all the time, but winter in Florida is a sunny adventure after all. And Sally still dreams up wonderful stories in her head.

But there is a lingering shadow. A distant and not fully understood terror of war, death, and concentration camps. Of Tante Rose and Lila, who died at Dachau. It is a shadow that sometimes turns Sally's wonderful stories into nightmares.

-This was a great read!
