  • Ellsworth 'Sonny' Wisecarver reminisces about a time in his life forty-three years earlier when he was a socially awkward but street smart fifteen year old in 1944. He lived in what he considered a bizarre home life in Los Angeles with his somewhat naive but unusual parents. Like most mid-teen boys, Sonny wanted to meet a nice girl his own age and ultimately fall in love with her. Girls his own age didn't seem to be attracted to him. Instead, he met and romanced in succession two older women: first, twenty-one year old Judy Cusimano (who was already in a common law relationship which had bore two children), and second, twenty-five year old Francine Glatt, whose husband was away at war. After the first highly publicized relationship, Sonny was dubbed "The Woo Woo Kid" by the press. And despite the press resulting from the first relationship after which Sonny vowed not to get involved with an older woman ever again, he met Francine which started the cycle all over again. This press also brought disdain by many, but admiration and love from afar by an abundance of young women and teenyboppers. With this recollection of life in 1944, Sonny just wants to tell the story from his side.
