Living in her grandparents' Brooklyn Heights brownstone, she doesn't like dresses, needlepoint, or manners. Her love of Wonder Woman comics and ants makes her feel like a misfit -- especially in the shadow of her dazzling but unstable mother, Stella. Postwar Brooklyn is seen through Wally's eyes, opening on V-J day, as she grows up with the rest of America. Her household also includes Loretta, the family's black maid and Wally's second mother; Ham, Loretta's son, who shares Wally's enthusiasm for ants and exploration; Rudy, Wally's father, a naval officer, away serving in the Pacific; and Mr. Niederman, the family's boarder, who never seems to answer Wally's questions -- and who she suspects may have something to hide. Reeling from her own unexpected wartime tragedy and navigating an increasingly fraught landscape, Wally is forced to confront painful truths about the world -- its sorrows, its prejudices, its conflicts, its limitations.
