Scoliosis twists Deenie’s plans for seventh grade in this classic Judy Blume novel with a fresh new look.

Deenie’s mother wants her to be a model, with her face on magazine covers—maybe even in the movies—but Deenie wants to spend Saturdays with her friends Janet and Midge, tracking Harvey Grabowsky, the captain of the football team, around Woolworth’s.

Instead, Deenie is diagnosed with scoliosis. And that means body stockings to squeeze into, a roomful of strangers to face, and a terrifying brace that she’ll need to wear for years that goes from her neck to her hips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Resonated with me as a young girl This is one of a few books that I really remember reading, and then reading again as a young teen. It was refreshing to read about a girl who had struggles other than what dress to wear to the prom or that the boy she likes liked another girl. Deenie was coming of age, it was exploring a new time in a girls life and over coming obstacles.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Deenie I was struck by the completely real, unedited voice of a twelve-year old teen that Blume gives us in Deenie, the protagonist of this compelling story. Deenie, is an overall great book it really keeps you hooked and never gets boring. This book is very good and has a really interesting and ending.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be Prepared!! My 10 year old daughter was reading this book out loud to me when all of a sudden on pages 103-107, it talks about masturbation. I was not prepared for this out all. No warning of sexual content on the book. Very disappoint!
