    I think I was about ten years old when I read this book one of a Judy Blume box set I suspect my mother has yet to recover from my ensuing questions Mommy, the book I m reading has a boy in it who keeps saying that it went up Why would he be embarrassed if his ZIPPER went up Was it written wrong After my mother s commendable and surprisingly unflappable explanation, I had some seri

    Yet another highly enjoyable Judy Blume book In this one, Tony s family become wealthy and move to a new neighborhood There s some good aspects to this of course, but Tony s mother is desperate to impress the neighbors, to earn their approval and acceptance This happens quite frequently, and, on a smaller scale, I have observed many people falling into this way of thinking living, so it was

    I know I keep gushing about Judy Blume but once again she proves to be one of the best young adult novelists ever I loved that this story told from the POV of the male lead Tony is just a strong a reflection of the juinior high years as Are There God It s Me Margaret The story is a simple one a poor Italian kid s family becomes successful and moves from Jersey City to a toney neighborhood and exactly how this changes the entire s of the each person It
