What happens when you get what you think you want and then
don't know what to do with it? When twelve-year-old Margaret
hears the boy next door call to her in the middle of the night,
her heart races with excitement - and nervousness. Will this
mean Sherman is her boyfriend? Although Sherman insists that
Margaret come and join him for a moonlit bike ride, he doesn't
know what to expect any more than she does. But Sherman
makes a big mistake on their first date, and Margaret doesn't
know if she will ever forgive him. Things get even more chaotic
when Sherman shows up with a squirrel he calls Little

Facing disapproval from her mother, the complications inherent
in living with three-year-old twin sisters, and self-imposed
pressure to emulate a best friend with confidence enough for
two, Margaret attempts to sort out her feelings for Sherman. In
the process, she may just find a place for herself in her family
and the larger world, in this sparkling debut novel set in the
early 1960s.

Set in a time when women stayed home and wore nylons even in the summer, this slice-of-life is less of a story and more of an evocative mood piece.
