Morris Bird III, "trying to make do with the sum and total of his present until maturity arrives, has the usual teenage troubles--acne, his dumb name, a squabbling family, and, in this summer of 1948, the looming death of his grandmother. He sustains himself with the Cleveland Indians (in the pennant race), Philip Marlowe, Mittyesque daydreams, friends, baseball, and movies."--Review from Library Journal
