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 Margaret. 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.
