    It is 1952 and the word polio scares parents all over the country. Public places are closed and everyone is afraid. Georgie doesn’t understand the fear though. She knows she won’t ever be affected by polio. Until she learns that the girl next door is living in an iron-lung. "I have eighty-seven cubic centimeters of air, but you have the world," Phyllis tells her. And so their friendship begins. But Georgie soon realizes that Phyllis may not be as nice as she seems.
