Read in January, 1979
Judy Blume to me confronts issues that pre-teens and teenages are too scared or embarrassed to ask someone about it. This books about Deenie whose Mom wants her to a model but she eventually is diagnosed with scoliosis and has to wear a back-brace. The struggle in the relationship between her and her mother and the rest of her family was well thought out. People who want this book banned for a couple minor vague details are missing the whole point of the book. It is a good book and I remember reading it a few times as a pre-teen/teenager.
