"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.
