"Mary Alice has gone down to Grandma's for a year due to not enough room in their home in Chicago. Her brother was out west with the Army. She enrolled in the town's high school which had more girls than boys. She almost gets clobbered by a Burdick A lot of things happen in the book: a crazy Halloween, a ruined Christmas play, a visitor, and a tornado. In the end, Mary Alice gets married during the final year of WWII."
