Summary
Wally Baker is no ordinary girl. 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. 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. But Wally also finds hope and strength in the unlikeliest places
