Toni V, a teenager working on a demolition crew that cleans up after the War, finds Pelly D's diary buried in the Plaza. He smuggles it into his sleeping quarters and reads it in his spare time. Pelly D is a beautiful, rich girl who is used to getting whatever she wants. Political changes disrupt her world. Toni V becomes enchanted by her writings.

The novel is written in a distinctly modern to futuristic style, but there are subtle references to the Holocaust of World War II. There are also references to the go with the flow, don't make waves, do what you're told attitude of present times. The book explores how a democracy or republic can change into a more totalitarian, tyrannical society.
