Renata has the nickname Wolfie because she's a lone wolf who is more interested in nonfiction books than she is in people. Friends just get in the way of what she wants to do! One afternoon while she is building a submarine out of an old refrigerator box, a neighbor boy nicknamed Flu (he always buzzes around annoying people) knocks on her door. Together they go on an amazing adventure in the submarine that teaches Renata about pretending and friendship.
